Alleging "complete jungle raj" in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday blamed Prime Minster Narendra Modi and Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung for the state of affairs.
"Complete jungle raj in Delhi. LG/Modiji failed miserably. What have they done to control deteriorating law and order?" the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader asked in a tweet.
His comment came a day after a 50-year-old woman and her two daughters, aged 19 and nine, were found murdered at their house in Delhi's Brahmapuri area.
Separately, a four-year-old girl was allegedly raped by an 11-year-old boy in Mangolpuri area.
Kejriwal said rapes and murders were happening in Delhi but Jung "is busy round the clock creating hurdles in (our) government's works. He is unable to perform his duty.
“Will LG and Modiji do something please? Law and order situation deteriorating by the day in Delhi,” he added.
Because of the national capital's unique status, Delhi Police reports to the central government, not to the city government headed by Kejriwal.
Kejriwal and his government have been feuding with the central government since taking power in February 2015 over issues of governance.
Kejriwal is pushing for full statehood for Delhi, saying this will help him implement his plans for the capital in a better way and also improve the law and order situation.
