New Delhi, June 26 (IANS) Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and other AAP legislators were detained here on Sunday while they were marching towards the Prime Minister’s residence to protest against the BJP’s alleged obstructionism and targeting of Delhi government.
“All the MLAs including Sisodia have been detained and taken to the Tughlaq Road police station,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Jatin Narwal told IANS.
Sisodia told reporters here: “We will all go and surrender ourselves to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. There is an attempt by the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) to stop the AAP government from working.”
“Every day they are arresting our MLAs. They have problem with AAP. But why are they impeding Delhi government’s good work,” Sisodia said.
On Saturday, the president of the Ghazipur Vegetable Market Association here submitted a complaint against Sisodia, accusing him of intimidating the businessmen during his official visit there.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs were marching towards 7 RCR, Prime Minister Modi’s official residence.
Delhi’s Rural Development Minister Gopal Rai said: “The BJP government has been trying to obstruct the good work of the AAP government. Why is there no action against the BJP legislators despite allegations. Why are only AAP legislators being targeted?”
On Saturday, Dinesh Mohaniya, AAP legislator from Sangam Vihar in southern Delhi, was arrested on charges of “sexual harassment” and sent in judicial custody. The complaint was filed by a woman who visited his office-cum residence in Sangam Vihar over water supply problems.
Mohaniya was picked up by a Delhi Police team while he was addressing a press conference at his residence in the constituency.
