August 11, 2017: Sacked Delhi Minister, Kapil Mishra has accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of ‘Bunking off” House proceedings. As the house met for the last day of the session, Kejriwal was absent in the meeting.
Kapil Mishra raised this issue and as a result was marshaled out of the assembly.
According to the PTI report, Mishra came to the meeting of the session with a banner that stated, “Kejriwal Missing, Come to the House.”
However, Kapil Mishra’s act was deemed against the rules of the House by speaker Ram Niwas Goel, after which he called in the Marshalls to walk Mishra out. He further ordered that Mishra was banned from attending the House meet for the rest of the day.
While outside, Mishra told the reporters, “Chief Minister Kejriwal has not attended a single sitting of the House over the last four days. I sought to know why and was Marshalled out. He bunked off the entire session.”
The Kejriwal-Mishra conflict began when the latter was sacked as an AAP Minister. After this incident, Mishra had made allegations against AAP Minister Satyendra Jain.
