AAP Kisan Rally

New Delhi:  Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said he will be happy if dissident AAP leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan return to the party.

“Agar aisa hua to bahut achcha hoga (If it happens, it will be very good),” the Aam Aadmi Party leader told India Today news channel.  “Their return will be good for the party,” he added, denying allegations that his dictatorial attitude prevents their return.

Both Yadav and Bhushan were removed from the AAP in April for alleged anti-party activities following an acrimonious two-month-long war of words between the founding members of the party and Kejriwal backers.

Since then, Yadav and Bhushan have publicly accused Kejriwal of being intolerant of dissenting voices.

The two later launched a “Swaraj Abhiyaan” campaign to force the AAP to return to what they say were its foundational ideals. (IANS)

Addressing the workers, Chahal said: “Kejriwal and his party leaders must apologize to Prakash for their behavior.”

He also accused the AAP government and Kejriwal of not acting against his MLAs who allegedly assaulted the Chief Secretary.

“They are promoting urban Naxalism mindset in the people of the city. This kind of lawlessness was never seen before in the city.

The BJP protest came in the wake of the alleged assault on Prakash during a meeting at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday night.

Prakash has alleged that he was beaten up by Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan and another MLA in the presence of Kejriwal.

The Delhi Police has arrested Khan and Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal.

The Delhi BJP workers also staged protests at several places in the city demanding the dismissal of all the AAP MLAs including the disqualified MLAs.

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.

He added that in the Moti Nagar constituency, the people do not get proper water or electricity. (IANS)
