A contrarian, but fair-minded, assessment. Given the impossible complexities of the law & order requirements in Delhi, teeming with VVIPs and the largest vehicular population in the country, not to mention the popular mentality that drives people in mindless road-rage at the drop of a hat, in the face of which all the police are haplessly striving to manage affairs with their woefully inadequate numbers, I believe Delhi Police deserve acknowledgement and unqualified kudos. Those who criticise Delhi police are mostly those who do nothing as responsible citizens to aid the law & order maintenance, but rather add to the problems. Also, they seem unaware of how much worse it is in most other states especially in the northern states and Hindi-speaking belt, especially in their behaviour with the public. Charity - in this case discipline and responsibility - begins at home. I for one salute Delhi Police for doing an impossible task to the best possible.
