Earlier today, three AAP MLAs including Raghav Chadha were also detained ahead of their planned protest outside Home Minister Amit Shah’s residence. MLAs Rituraj Govind and Kuldeep Kumar too were detained.
This comes after Delhi Police had rejected Raghav Chadha’s request for permission to hold a demonstration outside the Union Minister Shah’s residence on Sunday in view of the pandemic.
“…Any type of gathering is not allowed outside the residence of Hon’ble Home Minister of India. Your request has been considered but rejected. You are requested to co-operate with the Delhi Police,” the Delhi Police said in its reply.
“…all social/academic/sports/entertainment/cultural/religious/political functions/other gathering are prohibited up to 31.12.2020 throughout NCT of Delhi in order to prevent and control the outbreak of pandemic disease namely COVID-19,” the order said.
On Saturday, Raghav Chadha wrote to Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police requesting for permission to hold a dharna outside the residence of Union Home Minister against alleging misappropriation of funds by NDMC.
भाजपा की MCD को जितना पैसा दो वो सब डकार जाते हैं। अब भाजपा के मेयर और पार्षद मुख्यमंत्री जी के घर के बाहर बैठे हैं कि हमें 13000करोड़ और दो ताकि हम वो भी डकार जाएं। पुलिस उन्हें धरना करने देती है,हम अमित शाह जी से मिलने जाना चाहते हैं तो हमें घर से ही हिरासत में ले लिया जाता है। pic.twitter.com/aeeh7QwUlu

AAP has alleged that the North MCD had waived off ₹ 2,457 crore which the South MCD was supposed to pay as rent for using the premises of the civic centre building in central Delhi which is officially the property of the North civic body.
“North MCD waived ₹ 2500 crore rent dues of South MCD, resulting in a loss to the public exchequer. Who is responsible for this corruption? On Sunday, we will go and meet the Union Home Minister and LG at 11 am. We will sit there till they give consent for CBI inquiry,” Atishi said while addressing a press conference on Saturday.
