Chaos in Delhi assembly amid comments against CM Kejriwal


Chaos erupted in the Delhi assembly on Monday amid comments against chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. Three BJP MLAs - Anil Bajpai, Jitender Mahajan and Ajay Mahawar - were told to leave after they stood on the benches even as speaker Ram Niwas Goel requested them to sit down. The MLAS of the AAP, which is in majority in the house, raised slogans, demanding apology over the comments made by Delhi BJP chief Adesh Kumar Gupta. "All three MLAs who are standing on the bench... I request them to get down. For today, I tell you to please leave the house," the assembly speaker can be heard saying in the video. "This is not a school," he angrily said.

The assembly session saw several disruptions and at least two adjournments on Monday. Several AAP MLAs protested in the well of the house. AAP MLA Mohinder Goel demanded an apology from BJP's Adesh Kumar Gupta and a censure motion against him. “A censure motion needs to be brought in the House against the Delhi BJP president for his derogatory remark against the chief minister. The Leader of Opposition should tender an apology,” he said.
