Delhi-CM-Arvind kejriwal

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will support the farmers protesting against the new farm laws which were passed in the Parliament in September. CM said his party will support the Bharat Bandh called by farmer leaders on December 8.

Kejriwal tweeted that volunteers of AAP will join hands with farmers in the peaceful protest across the country on Tuesday. Delhi CM also requested the people to support the farmers and take part in the protests.

Kejriwal’s decision comes on the day when Union minister of state for agriculture Kailash Choudhary reiterated that the three new laws are in favour of farmers and they will benefit the farming community in many ways. Choudhary added that opposition parties in different states are responsible for misleading the farmers of the country by spreading the wrong information about the laws.

AAP leader and Delhi environment minister Gopal Rai also extended his support to farmers protesting against the new farm laws. Rai said the central government is forcefully trying to implement the new laws by showing them the benefits of the laws when there are actually none.

Rai said this is not just the farmers’ fight but the fight for all countrymen. He further said India is an agricultural country and if farmers are unhappy then the entire country is affected. Rai appealed to all the people to join the Bharat Bandh on December 8.

Rai said AAP’s workers and volunteers in every state will participate in the Bharat Bandh on December 8 in solidarity with the farmers.

According to the reports, farmers would occupy toll plazas on December 8, the day of Bharat Bandh, if their demands for repealing the agri-marketing laws are not met.

An official statement, Friday, said that all Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACPs) and Station House Officers (SHOs) have been holding meetings with members of the Residents Welfare Association and Market Welfare Associations and briefing them about security measures in place for Republic Day.

Delhi Police has been actively urging people on social media to alert security authorities about any suspicious person, activity or article, the statement said.

The police said that surprise checks are being conducted at hotels, guest houses and ‘dharamshalas’ to ensure no suspicious or anti-social elements have illegally occupied the space, adding that tenant and servant verifications are also being done.

Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Dependra Pathak, while hailing the “robust” security checks and terror measures, assured that the police will not allow any terror plot to succeed on their watch.

He said that several measures aimed at creating awareness among the public, such as organizing public meeting and alerting market and resident welfare associations are being run to ensure mischievous elements with nefarious designs are unable to creep in.

Officials said that anti-terror measures have been intensified in coordination with other security agencies since Delhi has always been a target for terrorists or anti-social elements.

They said the officers are on high alert and extra pickets have been deployed on bordering areas to ensure no mischievous elements gain entry into the national capital.

An alleged video of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal’s late night sexual harassment by an intoxicated driver on the city streets has surfaced online.

The alleged video, which has gone viral on social media, shows Maliwal’s run-in with her purported attacker.

“Sorry. I can’t hear you. Where will you drop me? I have to go home to meet my relatives,” Maliwal is heard saying to the accused Harish Chandra, who was driving a white Maruti Suzuki Baleno car.

Maliwal then steps away and it seems like the man drove-off but apparently makes a U-turn and once again presses Maliwal to get in.

“I just told you that I won’t get in with you. Why are you asking again? Where will you drop me? I told you my relatives are coming,” 38-year-old Maliwal tells her attacker. As she seems to lean in to reprimand him, the attacker seemingly pulls up the window glass, Maliwal’s hand gets stuck but the accused drives off, dragging her along.

The authenticity of the video could not be verified.

Maliwal, had on Thursday, claimed that she was dragged by a car for 10-15 metres in the national capital during the intervening night of Wednesday-Thursday.

The incident, according to the DCW chief, took place at around 3:11 am opposite to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Gate-2 on Thursday. Police reports say that Maliwal’s hand had got stuck in the car’s window.
