It is very disturbing, it is a dangerous planted attack on democracy. Anyone who speaks against them is labelled a Pakistani and an enemy of the country. We never saw such a situation in the country before this. Delhi's Police is not under Arvind Kejriwal rather it is under Central Govt. On one side they have sent the BJP goons & on the other side they made the Police inactive. What can Police do if they are directed by higher authority. This is a fascist surgical strike.
