The Aam Aadmi party also opened a front against the BJP and the Lieutenant Governor on Monday over the issue of nominated councilors in the MCD. AAP leaders and workers protested at the BJP office claiming that there was a conspiracy to get votes from the nominated councilors against the tradition of the constitution. In doing so, AAP leaders also targeted the lieutenant governor. AAP MLAs, councilors and workers raised slogans against the lieutenant governor and the BJP.
The demonstration was led by Social Affairs Minister Rajkumar Anand and AAP leaders Saurabh Bhardwaj, Sanjeev Jha, Adil Ahmed Khan. On this occasion, AAP leaders claimed that the constitution is being killed by the lieutenant governor by ignoring all the rules in the MCD. He warned the lieutenant governor that he will continue the fight to protect the constitution from going to parliament until the situation is resolved in the case of nominated councilors who do not vote in the election of the mayor.
Saurabh Bhardwaj said that BJP wants to take over MCD by dishonesty while AAP got majority in MCD elections and should form its government but lieutenant governor unfairly appointed presiding officer and nominated BJP workers as councilors. Now they want to have their votes cheated.
