AAP vows to hit the streets to nab the corrupt ' '.
THE AAM Aadmi Party has threatened to come to streets once again to expose corruption in the Delhi Police.
In the light of the on- going tussle between the Lieutenant Governor and the Delhi Government over the Anti- Corruption Branch ( ACB), the Aam Admi Party has said that it will now form " squads of volunteers"who will come out on the streets and help people nab the ineffective and bribe- seeking cops.
The ACB has become a " defunct"body, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas alleged on Saturday that the department is not lodging any more complaints against the Delhi Police.
" Since the time the L- G has appointed IPS officer Mukesh Kumar Meena as the ACB chief, all complaint files against Delhi Police officers have been kept in cold storage,"Vishwas alleged.
" If this is how things continue,"warned AAP leader Dilip Pandey, " Hamare karyakarta sadak pe aake bhrashtachar ujagar karenge.
( Our volunteers will come to the streets and expose corruption.)"L- G Najeeb Jung appointed Joint Commissioner Meena, a 1989- batch Indian Police Service
officer, as the ACB chief on June 8.
Meena superseded Additional Commissioner SS Yadav who was already heading the department and was the AAP government's choice to continue as ACB chief.
Meanwhile, the ACB, under Yadav, also initiated probe into the 2012 CNG fitness scam in which the L- G is said to have given a clean chit to some suspected officials.
This face- off has resulted in Delhi government's ACB now having two chiefs.
Party leader Dilip Pandey said on Saturday, " We came to power to fight corruption. Since the formation of the AAP government, around 35 officers were arrested and 150 suspended for acts of corruption. However, since Meena took over, there has not been a single arrest."" The credentials of Meena are doubtful as he has allegations against him. Under the current officer, the position of the Anti- Corruption Branch is getting compromised. We will tell people that the Centre is not allowing us to register FIRs against corrupt officials,"he added.
When asked about when will the Jan Lokpal Bill, be introduced, Vishwas said, " The CM is reviewing the draft and it should be introduced ( in Delhi Legislative assembly) next week."Incidentally, the AAP leader had announced that he would quit the party if the Jan Lokpal Bill is not passed within a month and more than five months have passed since the government has taken charge.
