New Delhi:

Suspended Aam Aadmi Party leader Kapil Mishra visited Rajghat to ‘pray to Baapu for strength’ before launching a fresh attack on Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal over alleged corruption by the state government. 

Mujh par sadan mein hamla, Rahul jisne Bansal parivar ka ghotala khola uss par goli chalna… kal subah 9 baje rajghat jaker Baapu se Shakti mangunga (Attack on me inside the house, shots fired at Rahul who was first to report Bansal family scam… will go to Rajghat tomorrow at 9 AM to pray fror strength to Baapu),” ishra tweeted on Wednesday. 

AAP scuffle in Delhi Assembly

On Wednesday, Delhi Assembly witnessed a high-octane drama as a few AAP MLAs and Mishra came to blows as the latter held out a banner with allegations of corruption against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Party MLAs, including Madan Lal, Jarnail Singh, were seen lunging at Mishra and dragging him as he raised a poster referring to the allegations before Speaker Ram Niwas Goel ordered him to be marshalled out of the House.

Later, Goel adjourned the House, which was convened to pass the state GST bill, for 15 minutes.

“I was not allowed to speak. The moment I attempted to speak, four to five AAP MLAs started hitting me. It is perhaps for the first time that MLAs have been used to muffle a dissenting voice inside the House,” Mishra told reporters.

Mishra also alleged Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was behind the entire episode, saying the MLAs rushed towards him after he “prompted” them to do so.

Shots fired at Rahul Sharma

Two unidentified persons on Wednesday opened fire at the car of Rahul Sharma, who had alleged a “scam” in the Public Works Department (PWD) in Delhi involving a relative of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Sharma escaped unhurt.

He claimed that the attack was a fallout of the cases lodged by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on the basis of his complaint alleging irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines in Delhi in 2015.
