Amit Shah asks where Delhi Govt’s CCTV cameras are, AAP shows his face captured on CCTV
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia released Shah’s footage recorded by CCTV cameras installed by the Delhi government.
With the announcement of Delhi assembly election dates, the political battle in the national capital has started gaining pace. On Monday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah attacked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and alleged that the Arvind Kejriwal government had not fulfilled the promises made during the 2015 assembly election.
While making a series of allegations, Shah said, “for Delhi’s security 15 lakh CCTV cameras were supposed to be installed in Delhi. People are still looking for these cameras.”
Replying to this, AAP senior leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia took a dig at the Union Home Minister on Tuesday. He released Shah’s footage recorded by CCTV cameras installed by the Delhi government. In the footage, Shah could be seen interacting with supporters during his door-to-door campaign in Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar area.
देश के गृहमंत्री कह रहे थे कि दिल्ली में कोई CCTV कैमरा नही लगा, लेकिन जहां @AmitShah जी डोर टू डोर कर रहे थे वहीं दिल्ली सरकार के CCTV कैमरे में वो खुद कैद हो गए। Watch This Video ???????? pic.twitter.com/S94Gck1Bzy— Vikas Yogi (@vikaskyogi) January 7, 2020
“I have been hearing BJP chief Amit Shah asking about the CCTV cameras….two days back Shah had visited eight households in Lajpat Nagar during his door-to-door campaign. The lane he had visited had 16 CCTV cameras installed,” Sisodia said after showing the CCTV footage to the media.
“In fact, one of the houses that he entered had a CCTV camera installed on it…I want to tell Amit Shah ji that he doesn’t need to use a doorbin (telescope), all he needed to do was look upwards in the lanes where he was campaigning.”
The AAP leader, while releasing the CCTV footage, also said that AAP in its manifesto had promised to install the cameras in public spaces and the public buses. It had not specified that it will install “15 lakh CCTV cameras”, as Shah had claimed.
The Kejriwal-led Delhi government had started the installation of over 2.8 lakh CCTV cameras in public spaces in 2019.
