Meanwhile, Delhi BJP spokesperson and son of the first Delhi Chief Minister Madanlal Khurana, Harish Khurana, along with party workers protested outside the AAP Moti Nagar MLA’s office.

Khurana told IANS: “We took out a bike rally in Moti Nagar constituency over the present administrative situation in the national capital.

“The way Kejriwal government is behaving, it is clear that the entire administration has been stalled.

“And if the top official of the Delhi government can be attacked inside the Chief Minister’s residence then one can imagine how much a common man is safe on the streets of Delhi,” he said.
