New Delhi: While demanding the probe into the role of former BJP MLA Sunil Kumar Vaidya in the Trilokpuri riots, the Aam Aadmi Party has alleged on Sunday that the communal violence in Trilokpuri area of East Delhi was a pre-planned act in order to polarize the society on communal lines for political ends. The party said it is an unpardonable act which has been committed in a pre-planned manner to polarize the society on religious lines. It appealed to the people of the area to maintain peace and clam, and no attention should be given to rumours being spread by vested interests to create discord between communities.
The AAP had sought a report from its MLAs – Raju Dhingan and Manoj Kumar, representing Trilokpuri and Kondli assembly constituencies about the reasons behind the communal flare-up and the prevailing situation. It said that both of them have been spending their nights in the affected area to prevent any further disturbance. The first-hand account narrated by them has brought out very disturbing developments, which makes it clear that there is a political design behind this communal tension in Trilokpuri and its adjoining areas.
AAP demanded that Delhi Police should probe the role of former BJP MLA Sunil Kumar Vaidya in the entire incident, since there are credible reports that he had convened a meeting on Diwali night and trouble started only after that. It needs to be investigated what was the purpose of inflammatory meetings on Diwali night and where did the group led by this BJP leader go after their controversial meeting.
The attempts to create communal discord need to be nipped in the bud and the Delhi administration needs to fully wake up before it is too late.
The party said it has been reported in the media that the union home ministry had alerted the Delhi Police about the possibility of communal tension around Diwali in some parts of the capital, since neither the home ministry nor the Delhi Police have denied the existence of such an advisory, the people of Delhi have a right to know what preventive steps were taken.
Slamming the Center, AAP said that exchange of information is meaningless if there is no political will to take action and when precedents of Uttar Pradesh are already there, the central government which is controlling Delhi by proxy has a lot to explain.
