Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s personal car, Maruti WagonR, has been reported stolen on Thursday.
The blue colour Maruti WagonR car, registered in the name of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), was being used by media coordinator Vandana Singh and was stolen from outside the Delhi Secretariat Gate No 3, a police officer said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Mandeep Singh Randhawa said, “We have received a complaint regarding theft of a blue colour WagonR car bearing registration number DL9CG9769 from AAP. It was stolen at around 1 p.m. The police are examining the CCTV camera’s footage of the secretariat and efforts are on to identify the accused person.”
The car was donated to Kejriwal by Kundan Sharma, a software enginner, in January 2013. The Chief Minister now uses an official car.
Delhi CM had extensively used his WagonR car during election campaigning in New Delhi.
AAP blames Delhi LG
Later in the day, AAP Chief Spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said that the Lt Governor’s primary responsibility was to look after the law and order situation of the national capital and check whether the police were doing their duty properly.
Bharadwaj said that “there can never be a bigger question mark on the law and order situation (of Delhi)”.
The leader added it would really help the citizens of Delhi if Baijal started concentrating on law and order situation of the city, instead of creating obstacles in the functioning of the Delhi government.
