Lt Governor Anil Baijal ‘fires one bullet at me’ every day, Arvind Kejriwal said. This is Kejriwal’s first direct attack against Baijal since he was appointed the Lt Governor of Delhi on December 31, 2016. Noting that his government tries to coordinate on various issues related to the development of the national capital, both with the Lt Governor as well as the Centre, the Delhi chief minister said “the firing” has intensified just before the MCD polls.
The new police chief of Uttar Pradesh vowed to crush cow vigilantism in the state. “Those indulging in ‘gundagardi’ and criminal activities will be dealt without mercy. They cannot escape. And even VIPs will not be spared,” Sulkhan Singh, the 1980-batch IPS officer said without mincing words. Singh was shunted to posts quite below the level of his seniority during the previous SP regime. During the BSP rule between 2007 and 2012, he had probed the police job scam during the SP government, when Mulayam Singh Yadav was the CM.
