A day after posting audio clips on social media slamming the Delhi police and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the gruesome murder of a 19-year-old girl, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to advertisements on radio and newspapers to convey the same message to the people.

The advertisements have been published by the Delhi government in all major dailies in the national Capital and FM Radio channels.

Incidentally, the Delhi government has allocated Rs 526 crore in the budget for publicity purposes.

In two letters — similar to the audio clips released on Monday — the Chief Minister appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to spare at least an hour every week to address the capital’s deteriorating law and order situation.

In an unusual appeal in one letter, Kejriwal has also urged people not to remain “mute spectators” but take action against perpetrators of violence on women, saying Delhi Police with unbridled powers has become “totally unaccountable”. Kejriwal made a reference to the gruesome murder of a 19-year old girl in Anand Parbat area last week and lambasted Delhi Police for failing to ensure safety of women in the city.

In the second letter, which has been addressed to the Prime Minister, he reiterated his party’s demand for handing over of Delhi Police to the city government. He also sought Modi’s intervention in improving the law and order situation.
