Over hundred activists of the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Gurgaon chapter staged a protest at Rajiv Chowk on Friday against the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raid at the office of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. They also submitted a memorandum, addressed to President Pranab Mukherjee, to the district administration.
In the memorandum, the activists said the CBI, which conducted the raid on Tuesday, should be allowed to function independently in the interest of the nation. Thereby the ruling party at the Centre should not direct them according to its wish. They alleged that the CBI acted under political pressure from the Centre. They also alleged that the Haryana government had failed to redress the grievances of the people at all levels and all its policies were “anti-people”.
Led by AAP Haryana affairs in-charge Naresh Balyan, who is also the MLA from Delhi’s Uttam Nagar constituency, the activists raised slogans against the CBI and burned effigies of the investigation agency. The activists marched to Mini Secretariat and submitted the memorandum to the district administration.
