Kejriwal and party has to rethink over their working style
The concern of Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party's chief Arvind Kejriwal is understood to everyone, and in case he wants Delhi police to be answerable to the public, there is nothing wrong in that. The demands of Kejriwal to bring Delhi police under the control of state government are also not illegal, but there is definitely a space for having a debate on the style of demanding of the same.

How far is it correct for the CM to sit on the road along with his Cabinet? That too, when the Republic Day preparations for January 26 are going on, where there is high security.

Kejriwal is annoyed with the Delhi police on three issues.  According to him, the action of Delhi police regarding the Denmark woman rape case is slow and despite the complaint lodged by the Women and Child Development Minister Rakhi Birla, in a murder case due to dowry demand, no action has been initiated by the police, rather tried to virtually destroy to evidence. But, the major problem is refusing the police to raid the house in Malviya Nagar on the complaint of Law Minister Somnath Bharti.

In fact, Bharti had suspected that drug and sex racket is being carried out from that house and Kejriwal demanded an action against those police officials who had refused to honour Bharti’s request. In the first two issues, the weaknesses of Delhi police are understandable. The incident occurred with Denmark woman in a densely populated area. The police patrolling is said to be the main reason behind such incidents and taking rape and dowry cases lightly seems to have become a habit for Delhi police. This is the reason, the accused are scot-free.

But the third one is totally different.  Delhi Law Ministers must be knowing the benefits of raid by the police but the issues related to women and that too of foreign nationals are very difficult to initiate action instantly without going into the detailed facts. The charges must be based on some facts and to deal with the same, there are certain fixed  norms. How Kejriwal and his minister can advocate by ignoring them?

Until now, every chief minister has put a demand to bring Delhi police under him, but there was no agitation and protests. Whenever, the elected members become a part of the government and its system, then it is expected that they should do the work within the framework to find out the solutions of the problems.  In case everyone goes against the system, while working in the system, then whole system could be in danger.  We can do good work while being within the system, when the system is maintained and people have faith in it.

In case, Kejriwal and his party members want to leave an impact with their work on the minds of the people of the nation, they have to re-think over their working style to run the government.
