Delhi Chief Minister once again has shifted our attention and won all the limelight by making a historic announcement regarding electricity costs.Delhi people would now get Free Electricity on the consumption of 200 and lesser units of electricity per providing 50 % subsidy for families consuming less than 400 units of electricity and now his announcement regarding free electricity is stealing everyone’s attention.Delhi was already the state charging minimum electricity costs, but after this decision of Kejriwal, Delhi would become the first state of India to offer Free Electricity.Electricity was one of the major issues highlighted by AAP govt.during their campaign and they did reduce electricity rate in Delhi as soon as they got power.
With regard to the violent protest over CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) in Delhi, lot has been argued about ‘suffering of students’, ‘human rights’ of students etc., A section of opinion-makers and so called celebrities have been arguing as if the rioters needed to be given a free pass to damage lives and public property and the police should refrain from maintaining law and order.In such a background, it is pertinent to ask whether the human rights issue doesn’t apply to police?The picture that needs to touch the consciousness of people is that of Delhi Police head constable Maqsool Ahmad admitted in ICU with severe head injuries.When a place is captured by the anti-social elements such as rioters and stone-pelters, it is natural that the Police rush in to maintain the law and order.But some people who are backing the Jamia protests frivolously argue that the police can’t enter the campus.When someone like Javed Akhtar made such arguments on social media, an IPS officer challenged him to show the relevant law to this effect.
