New Delhi :

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said that he and his cabinet colleagues will meet President Pranab Mukherjee today to discuss the law and order situation after the row over arrest of JNU student union president Kanhaiya Kumar in a sedition case.

Delhi Cabinet will meet the President at 2 pm today.

“Delhi Cabinet will meet Hon’ble President at 2 pm today to discuss Delhi law and order situation (sic),” Kejriwal tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal alleged that Delhi Police is “openly flouting” Supreme Court orders and wondered what instructions Commissioner BS Bassi has from his “bosses” after an attack on Kumar and mediapersons at Patiala Court premises.

The Delhi Chief Minister further said that “Had Delhi Police been under our control, then those raising slogans against Mother India and pseudo patriots goons would have been in jail. They (Centre) are not able to handle both.”

The CM has been demanding that the Centre hand over the Delhi Police to the city government.

Last week, the AAP government had ordered a magisterial probe into the alleged shouting of anti-India slogans by a group of students at the JNU here.
