Arvind Kejriwa

New Delhi, Jan 21 Expecting that his will win 2020 Delhi Assembly elections, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said the aim of his party is to eliminate corruption and take Delhi forward.

Kejriwal will be filing his nomination on Tuesday from the New Delhi constituency for the February 8 Assembly polls, as he failed to file it on Monday due to delay.

In a tweet in Hindi, he said the fight is between other parties and the work done by AAP.

“On one hand – there are parties like BJP, JD (U), LJP, JJP, Congress, RJD. On the other hand – there are schools, hospitals, water, electricity, free travel to women and public of Delhi. My aim is to defeat corruption and take Delhi forward. They all aim to – defeat me,” he tweeted.

He held a roadshow with his wife and his two children in tow along with Aam Aadmi Party leaders and supporters, but could not file his nomination papers during the day as planned due to delay.

The Delhi Assembly elections are slated to be held on February 8 whereas results will be announced on February 11.

“Today, I had to file the nomination and the office closes at 3 p.m. but I saw so much love from the people (in the roadshow) that I did not want to end this. I was told at 2 p.m. that we are behind schedule and I should stop here. But I was not able to leave you people alone midway like this. The roadshow is ending now as the police permission is over. Tomorrow morning, I will go with my family to file the nomination. I am thankful to all for giving so much love and support. You have walked a long distance with me,” Kejriwal said.

Apart from his wife Sunita Kejriwal and their two children, Kejriwal was accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in an open vehicle as a sea of supporters holding brooms (the party’s election symbol) and placards walked along.

Amid heavy security during the roadshow, the participants chanted the Aam Aadmi Party’s election slogan — “Acchhe beete panch saal, lage raho Kejriwal”. Many supporters were seen dancing to the tune of the party theme song.

Special NIA Judge Parveen Singh, in an order pronounced on February 18, observed that accused Yusuf Chopan is entitled to statutory bail.

Maujpur anti CAA Violence

New Delhi, Feb 25 : The Maujpur-Babarpur metro station has become a battle ground with rival groups pelting each other with stones and throwing petrol bombs with bullets being fired intermittently.

As the day wore on, the ambulances were frequently seen transporting the injured.

Helmets are in huge demand as stone pelting from both sides is incessant. Armed with iron and wooden rods, the rioters let out a “war cry” when a projectile hits someone in the rival camp.

Policemen continue to fire tear gas shells even as rioters cover their faces with wet handkerchiefs.

A small bridge over a drain is the only link between both sides.

Journalists covering the violence are heckled and forced to delete pictures or videos.

Glass bottles, a piece of cloth and petrol are just the things they need to make a petrol bomb.

Joint Commissioner of Police Alok Kumar, who is leading his force, told IANS, “The situation is tense. We are trying to bring it under control.”

But the “war cries” echo across the area as Kumar tells his men to fire tear gas shells and protect themselves from petrol bombs and bullets. He himself ducked as stones were flung towards him.

On Tuesday afternoon, stone-throwing was reported from Kardampuri area near the Maujpur metro station area.

Locals claimed that four bullets were fired by an unidentified person in which a person was injured and taken to a hospital.

A journalist covering the protest got a bullet injury. He was shifted to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital.

At Maujpur metro station, a large number of people carrying the Tricolour and sticks have gathered to protest against those sitting near the Jaffarabad metro station over the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

The protest over the CAA and the NRC started on Saturday night when women protesters staged a sit-in near the metro station.
