Why this unholy need to get the police under you and, if indeed, you have to, then do it by legislation not by disrupting the city

Can a chief minister go on strike? Can he drive up to the federal government in an official car and publicly protest?
What is happening in Delhi? Is this what Kejriwal meant by ‘sweeping’ clean? Is the man really going on strike because the police did not frisk four Ugandan women on the high handed orders of his law minister Somnath Bharti.
Frisk, frisk, cavity search, female dignity, scream India scream, remember that word from the outrage we all raised with Washington DC over Devyani Khobragade. And now we are angry because the police sensibly refused to harass four foreign women in the capital. Same difference. For suspected prostitution in a city where there are half a million of them. Racist to the core. Just because they are African.
We are looking stupid globally. We are showing our true ‘colours’ through these half-baked twits who now command power. Kejriwal wants to court arrest because he believes the aam aadmi (common man) will love him more. No, he won't, he'll just be pissed off that nothing is working.
Come on, stop fooling ourselves, it comes off disgusting because bigotry is gross. Would Somnath have done that to four white women…I seriously doubt it. For a nation fighting for the rights of women what about the rights of these four visitors?
And are these the Aam Aadmi’s priorities? Should a law minister even be concerned personally about four women getting into a car? Why this unholy need to get the police under you and, if indeed, you have to, then do it by legislation not by disrupting the city. This is ridiculous. Your team is falling apart, Arvind. Wake up and smell the coffee. You say you are an anarchist and if you even know what that means you should have declared your intent in your manifesto. We want law and order, not anarchy.
Your people have caused a hassle over Kashmir, one plans to go on strike against you next week, the other assaults women, you, the chief minister call yourself an anarchist and all your plans seem to fracture before fruition. Great going, buddy.
At one time these pale rooms of the Delhi commission for women looked like sleepy corners of officialdom; they are now best described as a bustling sarkari office. The woman who transformed this moribund organisation hardly looks like a powerful leader. Dressed in casual blue jeans and loose deni
