Worried about getting “framed”, at least eight Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs have asked the Delhi assembly speaker to provide them security.
Anil Bajpai, party MLA from Gandhi Nagar in east Delhi, said he and a few others met the speaker on Friday.
“We raised our concerns because 12 MLAs were arrested after being framed by the people who came to meet them at the office. We have requested for a guard and CCTV cameras at our office in the constituency. It is better if everything is recorded so that no one can level baseless allegations,” said Bajpai.
The speaker has asked them to write a letter with the signature of all the MLAs so he can take up their demands. Bajpai said the speaker promised to meet the police commissioner after getting a written request from them.
“Our MLAs said that at times miscreants create ruckus at their assembly offices. As a result, residents with genuine complaints suffer. They also asked the speaker to suggest solutions, some of which were the deployment of unarmed civil defence volunteers,” said Dilip Pandey, AAP spokesperson.
