The Aam Aadmi Party appeals to the people of Trilokpuri and its surrounding areas in East Delhi to maintain peace and calm, and completely ignore vicious rumours being spread in the area with the intention of flaring up communal passions.

AAP leaders are monitoring the situation round the clock and ground reports from the communal violence hit area make it clear that vested interests made all out attempts to instigate communal riots.

Party leaders Sanjay Singh and Manish Sisodia, along with Trilokpuri and Kondli MLAs Raju Dhingan and Manoj Kumar have apprised the leadership of the situation prevailing in Trilokpuri.

Based on the field report, the AAP demands that Delhi Police must immediately complete its probe into who made 192 fake calls to the Police Control room (PCR).

These calls were made with the intention of misleading the Police and spreading panic through hoax calls.

Delhi Police, which has now deployed its personnel in adequate strength to bring the situation under control, has a lot to explain in this incident and it should not soft pedal its probe into who was behind these calls.

The Police also cannot ignore the role of former BJP MLA Sunil Kumar Vaidya, against whom there is sufficient evidence of having conspired to  create communal discord in the area.

Local residents have also told the AAP leaders that close aides of Vaidya were involved in sending hate messages through Whats App  which were particularly aimed at spreading hatred against a particular community.

The AAP will hand over the mobile number to the Police for complete investigation into this matter.

The AAP is also handing over video evidence to the Police which shows the communal violence was pre-planned and the entire conspiracy needs to be exposed.

Central government must take all necessary steps to wake up the unresponsive and unaccountable Delhi administration from its slumber before it is too late.   (ENDS)

Dear Naresh,
I hope this mail finds you well.
In the past several months Road Safety has gained prominence in the country due to the tireless efforts of media in highlighting the epidemic of road accidents. Consequently, the government is expected to introduce a comprehensive legislation to deal with the challenge.
The efforts must continue though as on-ground change will only be visible through effective enforcement of any legislation and better awareness among citizens.
In order to support our media’;s efforts to cover the issue effectively, SaveLIFE Foundation has developed a resource center on Road Safety for media where latest statistics, global and domestic research, contact details of road safety experts, compilation of all judgments in the area, and testimonials of victims can be found.
The resource center can be accessed at www.savelifefoundation.org/media
In case of any additional resource or information, you or your team could contact me at anytime. My contact details are mentioned below with my signature.
With best regards,
Piyush
