Jan Lokpal protest: Bhushan, Yadav detained

New Delhi: Hours before AAP’s 2015 Jan Lokpal bill was tabled in Delhi Assembly, Opposition BJP’s two MLAs were evicted out of the House and the Swaraj Abhiyan leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav detained by police allegedly on the orders of the Speaker.

Vijender Gupta, the BJP MLA who was evicted from the House, alleged that he was beaten up by the Marshals and abused by the AAP MLAs while protesting against the suspension of the party MLA OP Sharma.

“I was attacked in the Assembly by the Marshals over the orders of the Speaker. The AAP MLAs also hurled abuses at me,” Gupta told a news channel.

Having termed ruling AAP’s 2015 ombudsman bill “mahajokepal”, the Swaraj Abhiyan on Sunday challenged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to a public debate on the Jan Lokpal Bill.

“Swaraj Abhiyan challenges the Delhi chief minister for an open debate with Prashant Bhushan on their Jan Lokpal Bill,” Swaraj Abhiyan, founded by former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, said in a statement.

“We hope that Arvind Kejriwal stops misguiding the common people through lies and false propaganda and accepts the challenge for a healthy debate in the interest of transparency and common people of Delhi,” it added.
