The Delhi police on Sunday morning arrested AAP MLA Rituraj Govind from Kirari in North West Delhi. He was accused of assault during Chhatpuja celebrations.

This comes three days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia were detained on November 3, when they had gone to meet the family of Ram Kishan Grewal, a former subedar in the army from Bamla village in Haryana, who had committed suicide.

                Ha ha. That's what Delhi's thullas are good at -- go after AAP and then get rebuffed by courts. Not one case against AAP members has going anywhere.

                  It looks like Delhi police has no time for law and order in Delhi. They are busy arresting AAP MLAs. I think Modi should have a special police force only for AAP MLAs so that other police force can take care of law and oeder in Delhi

                    After disallowing 27 controversial MLAs, it is possible that there will be reelection in Delhi. Then Kejri will end up in single digit. That is why he is desperate to fool Punjab voters and enjoy power there. He has made enough funds in Delhi to fight other elections.

                          Is the fault of Modi that most of the MLAs of AAP are Rowdy and misbehaving .. or AAP is beyond law.. The only thing AAPis doing is to pollute the minds of youth to doubt their Army, their nation their government, b every one corrupt. Is every body else wrong or some thing seriously wrong with AAP ?? This country is great. don't pollute it with dirty tricks, just for selfish political motives..

                            Modi and BJP came to power on Congress failure and not on their governance skill. This now amply evident with this consistent and ridiculous way they handle political opponents. I am frightened with Delhi police. Difference between stan and Delhi is former is ruled by military and the latter by police.

                                            Every arrest of an aap mla is turning the common man (not the average BJP supporter) into an even bigger aap supporter. So I say arrest them all.
