Kapil Mishra manhandled in Delhi Assembly by AAP MLAs
Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra was on Wednesday manhandled in the Delhi Assembly by Aam Aadmi Party members after he raised allegations of corruption against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyendar Jain. Mishra later claimed that he was 'attacked' on the orders of deputy CM Manish Sisodia.
Mishra demanded that an open session of Delhi Assembly be convened in Ramlila Maidan to discuss the issue of corruption in the Delhi government and hurled a banner inside the House.
The Assembly that congregated to discuss the Goods and Services (GST) Bill, was later disrupted after a group of AAP leaders attacked Mishra and one of them even tried to strangle him. Members of the opposition party tried to rescue him, which led to a tussle between two groups.
Speaker Ram Niwas Goel warned him not to do so, but Mishra continued. Goel later ordered that Mishra be marshalled out.
Before the marshals could reach Mishra, he was manhandled by three-four AAP members.
"Before being marshalled out I was attacked by Madan Lal, Jarnail Singh and some other members," Mishra told reporters outside the assembly.
Mishra, a former Minister, has been carrying on a campaign against Chief Minister Kejriwal.
