AAP leader Kumar Vishwas stressed the need for Delhi Police to be brought under the jurisdiction of the state government. Delhi Police are at present under the jurisdiction of the union government."Delhi Police should be brought under the state government. This is an old demand of ours, so the chief minister and central government should make an effort," Vishwas said.He said that since Delhi Police remain under the central government, they cannot work properly.Demanding a home minister at the state level, Vishwas said: "If any such incidents happen in Delhi, there should be a home minister, so that he can look after the Delhi affairs. It otherwise becomes a long affair which includes contacting and consulting the centre."
AAP Seeks Control Over Delhi Police After Gangrape — www.newindianexpress.comCenter already has control over the military. Not sure why cops are under their control too.I find the American system interesting. They have regular cops. Then they have marshals. And then they have sheriffs. And of course the FBI, the NSA, the CIA and others!

only delhi police are under central control. being the national capitol, when it was converted from union territory to a state, the centre retained police under its control.

The question here is .. Why were they for Shiela dixit neck when she was CM? And in any case where is tht woman commando force?
And also they never demanded for police to be under state in their manifesto .. So these lame excuses?

Guys Delhi is not a state, its a Union Territory.
Delhi and Pondicherry are the 2 out of the 7 union territories in India that have Chief Ministers, Assemblies and a Lt. Governor. Other UT's have an administrator.
So in States Police is under the State while in Delhi and Pondicherry they are under central.

From what I understand one of the item in AAP manifesto is full statehood status for Delhi.
