Let us tell you that soon after AAP accused the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi of money laundering during demonetisation, the BJP said in a press conference that it was trying to avoid replying to the liquor policy and alleged corruption in the construction of Delhi’s schools by the Aam Aadmi Party. is an excuse.

Hours after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) announced a night-long protest in the Delhi Assembly complex, the BJP on Monday said it plans to sack its MLAs, ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain in connection with alleged corruption. There will be a sit-in protest throughout the night for the demand.

Leader of Opposition Ramvir Singh Bidhuri said that BJP MLAs have been forced to sit on dharna as they were not given a chance to express their views in the assembly. Earlier, all eight BJP MLAs could not take part in the proceedings of the special session of the Delhi Assembly as they were thrown out of the house by marshals.

On Monday night, slogans were raised on behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party MLAs demanding action against the LG. AAP leaders say that PM Modi was aware of the corruption done by the LG, but still he appointed him to this post.

It is worth noting that the confrontation between the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi and the Aam Aadmi Party has increased a lot for some time. Last week, VK Saxena had sought a report from the chief secretary on the delay of over two-and-a-half years in acting on the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) report on the probe into the construction of additional classes in Delhi government schools.
