Delhi BJP protest AAP Arvind Kejriwal MCD

New Delhi: The Delhi BJP on Monday staged a massive protest near Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence over the "ruckus created by AAP councilors" during a meeting last week of the municipal corporation House.


Led by their working president Virendra Sachdeva, a large number of Delhi BJP leaders and workers raised slogans against the Aam Aadmi Party and its convener Kejriwal.

Police stopped them while heading to the chief minister's residence from the Chandgiram Akhara, not far from Kejriwal's official house.

"What happened in the MCD House on January 6 was extremely shameful. The AAP councillors attacked BJP councillors including women. We are prepared to retaliate to the hooliganism of the AAP," Sachdeva said.


Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri said the AAP councillors by creating stir in the House of Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and preventing the oath-taking of aldermen disrespected the Constitution.

The AAP councillors in the MCD House meeting on Friday opposed the oath being administered to the 10 aldermen appointed by the LG. The BJP councillors retaliated with two sides scuffling and pushing one another amid a chaotic situation.

The House meeting was adjourned without an election to the posts of mayor, deputy mayor as well as members of the standing committee.
