The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the
Condemn Arrest of Law Minister
The arrest of the Law Minister of Delhi Jitender Singh Tomar by the police
is a shocking instance of arbitrary exercise of power by the Lt. Governor
Najeeb Jung. The Delhi police is under the jurisdiction of the Lt.
Governor. The arrest has been effected when the matter of an alleged false
degree acquired by the Minister is before the court.
The BJP government at the Centre is using the Lt. Governor to ride roughshod
over the elected state government of Delhi. The Lt. Governor has by a
series of actions showed that he will not abide by democratic and federal
norms. He should quit office immediately.
