New Delhi, June 17: Targeting the Narendra Modi government, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday said that when a government starts fearing its own people, it is time for it to go. The observation came just hours before AAP’s proposed march towards the Prime Minister’s residence for which the Delhi Police has denied permission. AAP spokesman Saurabh Bhardwaj said that it “felt like everything has gone five years back” when the then Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) “felt threatened and used its police force to stop Delhi citizens from protesting against it (during Lokpal agitation)”. “I feel when a government starts fearing its own people, then it is time for that government to go,” Bhardwaj told the media here.
AAP ministers, workers and supporters will gather at 4 p.m. at Mandi House and march towards Modi’s residence by 5.30 p.m. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Cabinet ministers Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai have been camping at LG Anil Baijal’s office since June 11 to push for their three demands including an end to the IAS officer’s “strike” of four months. The police have deployed heavy barricades and force and advised Delhi Metro to shut entry and exit in five stations. (IANS)
