Kejriwal’s Rikshaw stunt, humiliation of cop backfires; IPS officers complain to President
The Rikshaw stunt of AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hometown, Gujarat, seems to have gone all wrong.
As many as 30 retired IPS officers of the country have written to President Droupadi Murmu against the statement of Delhi Chief Minister and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) head Arvind Kejriwal’s misbehavior with police personnel. In the letter addressed to President Murmu, the retired police officers have shown their strong discontent over Kejriwal‘s behavior with the police personnel on duty.
The officers wrote that Kejriwal has unfairly tarnished the police force not only in the state of Gujarat but across the country. The former officers have requested President Murmu to intervene as the head of the country and advise Arvind Kejriwal against such misbehavior and vile behavior with the police.
The letter read, “Considering that Mr. Kejriwal is the Chief Minister of India’s capital city, the police force is duty bound to ensure his safety. It was disheartening to note that in order to score a political brownie point, Mr. Kejriwal’s conducted himself in a manner that utterly belittled the police officers for diligently obeying their duties. By stating that the police officials of Gujarat are a black spot on the security provided by the State, Mr. Kejriwal sought to gain public validation and praise albeit at the expense of the police forces.”
While Kejriwal was on his visit to Ahmedabad, Gujarat for an election campaign on September 12, he made use of an autorickshaw to reach the residence of its driver. The officer on duty stated that he would accompany him to the location over safety concerns. However, in response to the police officer’s prudent suggestion, Kejriwal made certain ‘distasteful and inconsiderate‘ remarks.
Arvind Kejriwal argued with Gujarat Police officers and employees and asked them not to provide security as per protocol. Kejriwal told the police personnel who came for security that he doesn’t need any kind of security. Kejriwal’s misbehavior with police officers has been called a political stunt by retired police officers.
Meanwhile, today, in yet another major embarrassment for Arvind Kejriwal was greeted with chants of ‘Modi-Modi!’ at Gujarat’s Vadodara airport, from where he was going to address a town hall meeting.
