New Delhi, June 24: Following the rise in crime rates in the national capital in recent times, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party on Monday urged the Union home ministry to chair a meeting with Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi police commissioner and other senior officials. AAP wants to find a solution to the issue, says a party personal.

Raising the issue of law and order situation in Parliament, AAP's Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said Delhi is emerging as the 'crime capital' of the country and opined that the Ministry of Home Affairs should convene a meeting 'immediately' to find a solution to the matter. It is to be known that law and order, land and police come under the Centre’s jurisdiction. AAP MP Sanjay Singh Gives Zero Hour Notice in Rajya Sabha Over Spurt Crime in Delhi

Echoing similar tone, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal opined that 'politics needs to be set aside'. He said, as Hindustan Times quotes, "All of us need to work together to improve the law and order situation in Delhi. Safety and security of each Delhi resident is important to us. The Delhi government will provide all cooperation to the Centre."

Kejriwal even spoke about the Delhi government’s flagship project of installing CCTV cameras across the city. He said, as the daily quotes, "We have started installing CCTV cameras on a large scale. This will help in controlling crime. We will get the feed of any crime taking place in Delhi and this will help in taking necessary steps immediately."
