The Delhi Police has filed a case against a Delhi government school in northeast Delhi’s Shastri Park area on Saturday after they hung a banner saying ‘I Love Manish Sisodia’ at the gate of the building.
The local residents protested when the banner was being put up on Friday morning, following which they lodged a complaint with the police. They alleged that some AAP workers put up the banner.
Complaint lodged by local resident
The complaint was lodged by a local resident, Diwakar Pandey, for which the Delhi Police has registered a case under Section 3 of the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act in Shastri Park Police Station. He also alleged that the AAP workers took out a desk from the school, brought it outside, climbed on it and put the poster of ‘I love Manish Sisodia’.
The School Management Committee (SMC) Coordinator Gazala along with the school principal helped in fixing the banner on the school gate, reports say.
“On March 3, between 8-8.30 am, some Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers were putting up a banner above the gate of the government school in Shastri Park. First, they took out a desk from the school. Brought it outside and climbed on it and started putting a poster of ‘I love Manish Sisodia’ on the gate, to which people objected and said that this is a temple of education, keep it away from politics,” he told ANI.
“We even asked them if they had permission. They claimed to be related to MLA Abdul Rehman. After this, a person contacted the MLA and asked him if he had given permission and the MLA replied with a yes. We know the MLA is lying as such permission is never given for a school to be used for some political gains.” Pandey added.
The complainant stated that the banner was removed after the people protested.
He said, “The problem is that children were made to write ‘I love Manish Sisodia’. Our culture does not allow all these things.”
“They are trying to brainwash the children. We asked the principal, but he failed to recognize the seriousness of the matter, after which I lodged a complaint. The police have registered a case taking cognizance and assured that the culprits will be punished,” he added.
Sisodia arrested by CBI over new excise policy
Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on Sunday last for alleged irregularities in the framing and implementation of Delhi’s new excise policy. The policy was withdrawn amid allegations of foul play by the Opposition.
Manish Sisodia had on Friday filed a bail plea in Rouse Avenue Court after the SC refused to intervene in the matter.
The fresh bail petition filed on behalf of Sisodia before a trial court in the national capital stated that no fruitful purpose would be served by keeping him (Sisodia) in custody as all the recoveries in the case have already been made.
It stated further that the former Delhi deputy CM was cooperating in the investigation and had appeared whenever summoned by the CBI. The other accused persons arrested in this case have already been granted bail, it added.
