Delhi sealing row: Chaos at Kejriwal’s home, BJP alleges heckling files complaint
A meeting at the residence of Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal to discuss the sealing drive ended in chaos. The walkout from the meeting was led by BJP leader, Manoj Tiwari.
The leaders of the AAP and BJP had gathered at the CM's house to iron out differences, but the meeting ended in huge drama with the BJP alleging heckling.
Meanwhile the Delhi government said that it would approach the Supreme Court to get a temporary stay on the ongoing sealing drive against several markets in the city. Kejriwal announced this after a meeting with BJP leaders at his residence ended in acrimony, with the opposition members filing a complaint against AAP MLAs for allegedly attacking them during and after the meeting.
"Last evening, I discussed the issue with lawyers. We have decided that in a day or two, Delhi government will move the SC to get a temporary stay on the sealing drive," the chief minister said after an unsuccessful meeting with BJP leaders.
Speaking to the media, Tiwari said, " today we asked Kejriwal for a meeting, but he created a drama out of it. How can we talk to him if he wants to politicise the issue."
He further added that three BJP MPs, three legislators and two Mayors had gone to meet the CM. However Kejriwal had called in 150 people along with the media. His intention was not on solving the problem, Tiwari said.
Delhi BJP unit general secretary Ravinder Gupta filed a police complaint at Civil Lines station - following which Vijender Gupta and another BJP leader were taken to Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital by the police.
"We had an appointment with the CM. But after we reached AAP MLAs Jitender Tomar, Sanjeev Jha, Jarnail Singh, Akhilesh Tripathi and others started heckling and abusing us," Gupta said in his police complaint.
