A day ahead of Delhi’s budget session, the BJP on Monday charged the AAP dispensation with rampant “violation” of constitutional norms and said it would corner the government in the Assembly over a host of issues, including former law minister’s alleged fake degree case and power.
The rival party also warned the Arvind Kejriwal government against the use of “strong arm-tactics” like deployment of marshalls inside the assembly, saying such methods does not “scare” the party’s MLAs and threatened to launch “large-scale protests”.
According to the leader of opposition Vijender Gupta, the party has prepared a strategy to attack the government by highlighting its “ineptness” and “hypocrisy”, both inside and outside the House, during the six-day-long session that starts Tuesday.
BJP that has three MLAs in the 70-member House, is eyeing to corner the AAP dispensation over former law minister Jitender Singh Tomar’s alleged fake degree case, and various other issues pertaining to power, water, and the municipal corporations.
Gupta accused AAP of using its “brute majority” to “violate and subvert all established constitutional norms and practises”.
“We want the chief minister to state his position on his minister’s fake degree by making a statement on the floor of the House,” Gupta said. He also sought to know as to why the anti-corruption branch was not registering cases against AAP MLAs, who he alleged have “serious charges against them”.
