The MCD said in its report to the Lieutenant Governor that AAP members caused commotion and hindered the work of the Chamber. In addition, they looted the house and also tore up papers. The MCD has not recommended action against any member, but has pushed for a date to be set for the House meeting.
According to sources, the MCD prepared a report during the day on Monday about the tumult in the House of Representatives on Friday. The report was then sent to the Lieutenant Governor in the evening. The MCD also sent video images of the tumult in the House of Representatives with the report. The MCD has written in its report that after taking the oath, the presiding officer Satya Sharma started the proceedings as per the agenda of the meeting. AAP members began to oppose his decision and began the process of giving the oath to the newly elected members on his behalf.
He left his seat, came to the well, and snatched the papers of the members taking the oath and the file from the hands of the secretary of the corporation. After this they started shouting slogans. Then the BJP members also started launching slogans. When both sides failed to keep calm, the work of taking the oath came to a standstill and the chairman suspended the meeting for some time. Even after the meeting started for the second time, the AAP members started to cause a stir. So he adjourned the meeting again.
