Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Expresses Deep Concern Over Alarming Surge in Severe Criminal Activities in the National Capital in Letter to LG Saxena.

Drawing attention to the deteriorating law and order situation, Kejriwal underscored the occurrence of four murders within the past 24 hours alone, causing distress and instilling significant apprehensions among the city’s residents.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has urged Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena to take swift and effective measures to regain the trust of citizens in the security and safety of their lives.

In his letter, Kejriwal expressed concern over the recent surge in serious crimes and emphasized the need for those responsible for ensuring safety to fulfill their duty consistently.

Kejriwal also conveyed his willingness to extend full cooperation in upholding the rule of law and protecting the interests of the people in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi.

Kejriwal pointed out that the recent National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) report should have alerted the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and the Lieutenant Governor about their direct responsibility for law and order in Delhi. The report revealed that Delhi accounted for 32.20% of crimes against women among 19 metropolitan cities in India.

The letter expressed disappointment that despite such alarming statistics, there seemed to be a lack of progress on the ground in addressing crimes against women, without specifying the reasons behind it.

Delhi Chief Minister expressed disappointment in the lack of urgency displayed by the Lt Governor and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) regarding law and order maintenance. He highlighted the rise in private security hires due to a shortage of Delhi Police personnel.

The CM stressed the need for immediate actions like increased night-time police patrolling and sought residents’ input through open dialogue. He proposed a meeting between the Delhi Cabinet and the LG to discuss solutions.

The CM also suggested joint meetings between police officers, elected MLAs, councilors, and Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) to develop effective crime reduction strategies.

Furthermore, the CM called for the revival of Thana level committees, which previously facilitated engagement between police, the public, and elected representatives until 2013.
