Delhi News Live Updates (April 22): A khap panchayat organised in support of former Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik in R K Puram on Saturday was cancelled after local police and RWA denied permission for the meeting. The panchayat had been called by leaders of 36 prominent khaps from Haryana, western Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi.

Malik later posted a photo of him at the R K Puram police station, saying “I am currently sitting at RK Puram police station in Delhi. The police can take me to the Chhawla police station in some time.”

BKU leader Gurnam Singh Charuni alleged that khap pradhans and Malik were “arrested” in R K Puram.”Like I had apprehended yesterday, because of the statements that he has given in favour of the farmers, the BJP might, given its nature, go after Satyapal Malik ji and soon he got CBI summons,” Charuni added.

Meanwhile, DCP (Southwest) Manoj C countered the allegations and said, We have not detained ex-governor Satyapal Malik. He has come on his own volition along with supporters to RK Puram Police Station and we have informed him that he can leave at his own will”.

In addition to establishing fresh links, new BJP Delhi chief Virendra Sachdeva is prioritising connecting with its ‘old friends’ on the sidelines of an ongoing expansion drive, party insiders said.

During his daily ‘pravas’, or visits, at different districts, Sachdeva not only makes contact with new potential members, but makes it a point to rekindle his connection with old hands who have been inactive or dormant in regard to the party’s organisational affairs for various periods of time, according to sources.

Sachdeva, who insiders said is known for his contact building and organisational skills, maintains a register of such “old inactive members”, whom he interacts with during such visits to learn how a particular district has evolved over time in terms of issues and demographics.
