BJP workers vandalised CCTV cameras outside CM’s house: AAP
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday posted on its social media handles a video clip and alleged that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders — who staged a protest outside chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence in north Delhi’s Flagstaff Road — broke CCTV cameras there.
BJP leader and mayor of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation Jai Prakash, who is one of the leaders in the protest at the spot, said, “The chief minister’s office was installing CCTV cameras near where we are sitting. There are at least 20-25 women councillors who are sitting on protest who objected to it and didn’t let them install the cameras. Why do they want to install a new CCTV here? Why can’t the CM meet us?”
A senior police officer said that some new CCTV cameras were being installed at the wall outside the CM’s residence.
“Some councillors from Bhartiya Janata Party objected to it, which led to argument between the two groups outside the CM’s house. Police present at the spot intervened and calmed down both the groups. The situation was normalised and CCTVs are now being installed,” the officer said.
Deputy commissioner of police (north) Anto Alphonse said later, both the groups filed police complaints against each other which are being looked into.
AAP spokespersons and Delhi government spokespersons did not comment on the incident.
Mayors of the three municipal corporations and BJP supporters have been protesting outside the chief minister’s residence for seven days.
