CM Arvind Kejriwal put under house arrest by Delhi police, claims AAP


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been put under house arrest by the Delhi Police after he met with the protesting farmers on Monday. This was alleged by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday morning. AAP also alleged that the police have forced the CM to cancel his meetings scheduled on Tuesday.

The allegations, however, have been refuted by the Delhi Police.

AAP has further alleged that Kejriwal is not being allowed to go outside and people are not allowed to meet him due to the Bharat Bandh call of the farmers. Notably, Kejriwal had extended his support to the nationwide strike called by farmers.

The Delhi Police, on orders from the Union Home Ministry, got the three mayors of the city’s various civic bodies to protest in front of the chief minister’s home and used it as an excuse to block the exits, AAP claimed. It further claimed that the CM’s residence has been barricaded completely, with none allowed to enter or leave the premises.

Twitter tussle between AAP & Delhi Police over Arvind Kejriwal

AAP tweeted, “Important: BJP’s Delhi Police has put Hon’ble CM Shri @ArvindKejriwal under house arrest ever since he visited farmers at Singhu Border yesterday. No one has been permitted to leave or enter his residence. #BJPHouseArrestsKejriwal.”

Delhi Police’s deputy commissioner for North District, Anto Alphonse, denied the claims made by AAP.

Reacting to the AAP’s tweet, the Delhi Police posted a picture of an empty gate of the CM’s house and tweeted, “This claim of CM Delhi being put on house arrest is incorrect. He exercises his right to free movement within the law of the land. A picture of the house entrance says it all. @DelhiPolice @LtGovDelhi.”

However, AAP was quick to rebut the police’s claim and posted a video in which Delhi Police is seen dragging a AAP MLA and not allowing him to meet the CM. AAP said, “Don’t fabricate evidence. First explain this video, why police are dragging our MLA and didn’t allow him to meet Hon’ble CM Shri @ArvindKejriwal. #BJPHouseArrestsKejriwal.”
