    Delhi police coming under Delhi govt will be the best thing than can happen to the people of Delhi. Why these metro stations have to be closed? Cheap tactics by the Delhi police to fuel discontent among people towards an honest attempt to get Delhi police under Delhi government. I hate the police forces which is inept, corrupt, colluded with corrupt ministers and evil drug and racketeering forces (barring few good exceptions).

    For India and more for Delhi the AAPunder its opportune leader Mr. Kejriwal, will not work. Thathe was an anarchist and a demagogue was apparent right from the start to allwhen he launched all those dharna that brought us noting but disruption andwackier life for all. Theensuing chaos impacted the most ordinary people and business communities aswell. Whatdoes he want? He andhis ilk cannot submit us all to his blackmail with a do or die scenarios on aday in and out basis. As someonewho did not vote for him (as did 66% other) and I humbly speak of my otherfellow citizen of Delhi, as to why we are obligated to listen to him and goofytactics? We didnot ask for this and we need to take some meaningful steps to put an end to hisshort rule that is way out of control? May bethe congress should pull the rug underneath him and that will be a big favorfor all. Whowant leader like him that is gives us nothing but tantrum, pandemonium anddisarray when in power and when not in power? Histactics is endangering him as well as others from various anti-nationalelements!
