Following the reports of an alleged physical assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on Monday night, the Congress and the BJP have joined voices in condemning the ruling party.
BJP lawmaker and Leader of Opposition Delhi Vijender Gupta said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is behaving like a dictator by calling Chief Secretary Prakash at 12 midnight and berating him in front of his MLAs. “Drunk on power CM was concerned about why not more funds were dispersed for advertisements. Such is the state of affairs under AAP,” said Gupta.
Sandeep Dikshit of the Congress said, “It clarifies how AAP is involved in malpractices and corruption. If something good happens, Kejriwal and his MLAs take credit and if it's something bad the onus falls on the government. Is tarah se haathapaai karna! Koi gundagardi hai kya? (To assault someone physically is nothing but hooliganism).”
DN Singh, Delhi Administrative Subordinate Services President said, “We are going on a strike with immediate effect. We are with our Chief Secretary (Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash). Until those at fault are not arrested we will not get back to work.”
