Delhi Police orders DCP East Delhi to take ‘necessary action’ against Manish Sisodia after BJP leader shares photos of Deputy CM without mask


The Delhi Police has asked DCP East Delhi to take ‘necessary action’ against the city’s deputy chief minister, Manish Sisodia, after a BJP leader shared the latter’s photos without a mask at a public gathering.

BJP leader Khemchand Sharma took to Twitter to draw the attention of LG Delhi and the Delhi Police to the COVID-19 rule violations by Sisodia. He wrote, “@LtGovDelhi ji & @DelhiPolice, Delhi’s DCM @msisodia was present at an engagement ceremony in East Delhi’s Sukh Vihar Community Centre without wearing a mask. There were more than 50 people present there. Kindly penalise the DCM for violating COVID-19 rules thereby sending an appropriate message to the ordinary public.”

Reacting to Sharma’s post, the Delhi Police tagged DCP East Delhi, directing for ‘necessary action’ against Sisodia.

On Tuesday, the Delhi unit of the BJP had launched a tirade against AAP supremo and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for hypocrisy by sharing a series of photos of Sisodia attending a wedding function without wearing a face mask. According to the BJP, the photos of Sisodia were taken on Monday (23 November).

Last week, Kejriwal had announced that those caught without a mask would be fined Rs. 2,000. This was a steep hike from the earlier fine of Rs. 500 for the same violation.
