Delhi BJP MLAs To Meet President Murmu Today Demanding AAP Govt’s Dismissal

New Delhi: MLAs of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Delhi will meet President Droupadi Murmu today where they will demand dismissal of the Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government over a host of issues including allegations of corruption against its ministers, reported news agency PTI. The legislators will also submit a memorandum to Murmu. 

In a statement last week, Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri said that the AAP had used abusive language against Delhi Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena.

“Along with the use of abusive language against the LG, the files sent to him are not even signed by the chief minister. Cabinet notes are sent to him after the cabinet meeting. In view of all these illegal activities, this government should be immediately dismissed,” he demanded.

The BJP has been demanding the sacking of Delhi government ministers Satyendar Jain and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia over charges of corruption.  The AAP has claimed that the saffron party made attempts to “poach” its MLAs but their attempts were foiled since theirs is a ”hardcore honest” party while the BJP called for a probe into the allegations.
