Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today asked the Delhi Police chief to take stern action against those involved in beating to death an e rickshaw driver for stopping two persons from urinating in public.

“Sad that an e rickshaw driver was beaten to death for stopping two people from urinating in public in Delhi. He was promoting Swachh Bharat,” the Union Urban Development Minister tweeted.

He said he has spoken with Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and has asked him to take “strongest action possible” against the culprits.

    Freedom of expression is very important for some Delhi University students. Some of them express their freedom through their tubes in public places. To them, freedom is very important irrespective of the method of expression. They think that the life of a poor rickshaw driver is a small price to pay for this freedom!
