New Delhi(web team): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday fired a fresh salvo at Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to put Delhi Police under his government purview. In his comments, Kejriwal said that a CMS survey had found the force ‘most corrupt’.
Kejriwal wrote on Twitter, “Second finding – Corruption has come down in Delhi Govt – it proves AAP govt’s neeyat n admn capability.”
Further attacking Narendra Modi, he said, “Shocking findings CMS survey today- Delhi police (under Modiji n his LG) most corrupt – scathing attack on Modiji’s capbilities n intentions.”
A day after stating that he will not let Modi sleep “peacefully” if “jungle raj prevails”, Kejriwal also asked the PM to not be stubborn and to work with the Delhi government.
Kejriwal said, “Modiji, don’t be stubborn, let us work together. Handover the ACB and Delhi Police to us, we will change the situation in one year.”
मोदीजी, अब ज़िद छोड़िये, हमारे साथ मिलकर काम कीजिये। ACB और पुलिस दिल्ली सरकार को दीजिये। हम आपको एक साल में ठीक करके दिखाएंगे(3/3)

On Sunday, after a meeting with Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, Kejriwal lambasted the Centre and Delhi Police, asserting that he will not remain silent on the issue of women’s security even as investigators claimed to have cracked the case of rape of a two-and-half year old child with the arrest of two juveniles.
“We will not allow the Prime Minister to sleep peacefully if women in Delhi do not get proper safety and the present trend of rapes continues.
In the 45-minute-long meeting which was attended by several top officials, Kejriwal questioned the “control” over police, emphasising that they must be made accountable.
