In a veiled attack at police over several AAP legislators being booked under various charges, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday said “lodging FIRs is their dharma” but the government will keep doing its job.
He was speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a yoga training session for teachers of Delhi government schools.
To a question on several AAP MLAs being booked in different cases, Sisodia said “lodging FIRs is their dharma, but we will keep doing our job (‘FIR karna unka dharm hai, hum apna kaam karte rahenge’)”.
Fifteen AAP legislators have been booked so far by Delhi Police under various charges, even as the party has been crying “political vendetta” behind these actions.
The yoga session was held in partnership with yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali Yogpeeth. “16 lakh students in Delhi government schools will now be able to get better yoga education,” Sisodia said.
Ramdev said the initiative is “praiseworthy” and other state governments should take inspiration from it.
Yoga is a scientific way of physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual growth. It is a secular lifestyle and channelises the internal energy. I thank Arvind Kejriwal for letting the teachers, and physical education teachers to be trained in yoga, so that they can train the children, Ramdev said.
Echoing the yoga guru’s sentiments, Sisodia said, “I hope other state governments would understand the importance of yoga in children’s lifestyle and take inspiration.”
