BS Bassi while addressing the annual press conference of the 80,000-strong Delhi Police, commented on the controversy of inclusion of the police force under Delhi government.

Delhites are ‘khushnaseeb”(fortunate) that Delhi Police doesn’t come under the Delhi government.

“If the Chief Minister were to handle the force, it will have to face political interference in local issues,” Bassi said.

Bassi said the city police had never faced any political interference as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh never interfered in police work related to local issues.

Bassi also said that police forces that were under state governments will have to face political interference over local issues. And the situation was different for Delhi on this issue.
