Criticising the “raid” by Anti Corruption Bureau sleuths at the Delhi Commission for Women office last week, Aam Aadmi Party MLAs on Wednesday accused the Centre of “misusing” Delhi Police against them.

The ruling party legislators are being “implicated in false cases” by Delhi Police despite the fact that courts in several cases observed “political vendetta” against them, AAP MLA Nitin Tyagi said at the Assembly.

Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan, who was arrested last month after a woman alleged that he tried to mow her down, said police wanted him to stay in jail for more days, but court gave him bail.

“Delhi Police is targeting AAP MLAs. LG threatens us (to send us jail), but I want to make it clear that we (MLAs) are not afraid of any LG, Prime Minister and police,” Khan said while taking part in a discussion on police allegedly targeting the legislators.

Sanjeev Jha, an MLA from Burari constituency, criticised the police’s recent “raid” at DCW office and said that DCW chief Swati Maliwal was “targeted” by police.

Since the Aam Aadmi Party has come to power in Delhi, its eleven MLAs have been arrested on various charges.

Delhi’s Anti-Corruption Branch on August 18 carried out “searches” at Delhi Commission for Women office here in connection with complaints by a former chief secretary and an ex-chief of the panel.

    All those MLA's who are caught have criminal background and are uneducated. This is contrary to what Arvind tells and how did MLA ta war had 130 crores and what is the answer to these questions.why is AAP is a total failure in providing wi-fi and security cameras which it provided it only to its MLA's and created 112 jobs and gave their MLA's hefty 400% pay rise. Please explain these facts first and mind it you would loose badly in upcoming elections as you accuse everyone without any proof and your MLA 's Are caught with criminal intent with proof and you still support them.
