The Delhi High Court has asked why the Union government has a “step-

motherly” attitude towards the national capital on an issue pertaining to the

recruitment of new personnel of Delhi Police.

Deputy Chief Ministerof Delhi Manish Sisodia has claimed that Centre is not “capable

enough” to run Delhi Police and reiterated the AAP government’s demand to hand it over the

city dispensation.

The Delhi High Court has asked why the Union government has a “step-motherly” attitude

towards the national capital on an issue pertaining to the recruitment of new personnel of

Delhi Police.

Reacting to the court’s observation, Sisodia said, “For the last 10 months, we have been

saying that the Centre has a “step-motherly attitude towards Delhi. “Centre is not capable

enough to run Delhi Police as it is not practical for them to run the large force single-

handedly.”

The Deputy Chief Minister alleged that Delhi is not on the priority list of the BJP-led Central

government as their party is not in the power in the national capital. In the past, Chief

Minister Arvind Kejriwal had appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hand over the

control of Delhi Police to his government.

Delhi High Court while hearing a case pertaining to the recruitment of new Delhi Police

personnel, said, “You (the Centre) are taxing people for the money, it is not coming out of

your pockets. Everyone is paying… but are they getting safety in return.”

“Don’t know why the Centre is not interested in better policing in Delhi. Why this step-

motherly attitude,” it said.
