New Delhi, Jan 20 (IANS) The BJP Monday criticized the Delhi government's protest against Delhi Police, saying activism cannot substitute governance. It also accused the Congress of being "mute spectators to ... chaos on the streets".

Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman tweeted that "governance is about making systems work. Activism can't be substituted for governance".

Hitting out at the Congress, which supports the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, Sitharaman accused it of being a "mute spectator to AAP-created chaos on the Delhi streets".

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues are holding a protest in the heart of the capital demanding action against police officials they feel did not act against crime.
