BJP condemns assault on Delhi chief secretary, calls for Arvind Kejriwal's resignation
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra on Tuesday lashed out at the Aam Aadmi Party after Delhi Chief Secretary was allegedly assaulted at the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence.
"BJP condemns this incident. A constitutional crisis looms over Delhi. First time we saw a Chief Secy being assaulted on the directions of a CM. AAP & anarchy have become synonymous. It has no relations with Constitutio," Patra asked.
Patra went on to ask whether Kejriwal had any right to remain in his post as CM of Delhi. "Such CM has no moral responsibility to stay on the post. He must resign immediately," he added.
Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was allegedly assaulted by two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs in presence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence on Monday.
Prakash has complained to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal that two lawmaker attacked him in the presence of Kejriwal during a meeting.
However, the chief minister's office has denied any such allegation by saying that the incident never took place. "Delhi CM office strongly denies allegations by the chief secretary. There was no incident of assault or attempted assault by any AAP MLAs," a statement from Kejriwal's office said.
