MLAs from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will meet the Delhi Police Commissioner on Wednesday. Sources said they will suggest to the commissioner that he “transfer non-cooperating policemen” from their present postings.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs in the Capital, led by the state unit president Satish Upadhyay, will meet Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi on Wednesday seeking transfer of some “non-cooperating policemen”, sources said.

Senior police officers told HT that Upadhyay had called the Delhi Police control room on Tuesday evening to ‘inform’ that he and 27 BJP MLAs would visit the police headquarters sharp at 12.30pm on Wednesday.

The meeting comes on the heels of the sudden transfer of 50 station house officers (SHOs) and 20 assistant commissioners of police (ACPs) on Monday. Police sources said these transfers too had been modelled on the Delhi BJP’s ‘suggestions’.

“Our control room received a call in the evening in which we were informed about the meeting,” a police officer told HT.

“We were told that the BJP wanted to discuss the transfers of 25 to 30 more SHOs, who do not cooperate with BJP members and the local cadre. They said necessary arrangements for the meeting should be put in place on priority,” the officer said.

When HT contacted Upadhyay, he confirmed his plan to meet the Delhi Police commissioner and said he had called the police control room too.

BJP sources told HT that Union home minister Rajnath Singh had given the go-ahead for the meeting to the Delhi leaders during a meeting with them on Monday.

With assembly elections looming over the Capital, police sources said this would be the first time that such a meeting was taking place, at least officially.
