New Delhi, April 29: In yet another embarrassment to Aam Aadmi Party, one of its MLA has been booked allegedly for misbehaving with an engineer.
Reportedly, Tilak Nagar MLA Jarnail Singh has thrashed an MCD engineers while latter was doing his official duty in the area.
This shocking incident has come to fore, close on the heels of party MLA and state Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar facing 'fake degree' controversy.
According to Zee News, Engineer Azhar Mustafa had gone to the area to demolish an illegal construction. But the locals didn't allow Mustafa to do so and threatened him. After matter gone out of hand, locals called area MLA Jarnail Singh at the spot.
Mustafa alleges that Singh first obstructed MCD officials to demolish illegal building and later thrashed me.
Later Mustafa filed an FIR against AAP MLA.
BJP has slammed AAP over the issue. Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay has accused Kejriwal of adopting "double standards" on the issue of corruption and said, "He talks about government officials being corrupt but are all officials corrupt?
What about an FIR being filed against his party MLA from Tilak Nagar Jarnail Singh, who assaulted South Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) engineer and prevented him from carrying out his official duty. He should first tackle dishonesty in his own party," Upadhyay said.
Meanwhile, latest report says that accused MLA has denied all the allegations.
