New Delhi | The Delhi Assembly today witnessed a lot of drama as Aam Aadmi Party MLA Mahendra Goyal tore the Home Ministry notification inside the House.
As the House was holding a discussion on a private member resolution moved by AAP MLA Somnath Bharti, seeking the assembly to declare the notification as ‘unconstitutional’ and ‘invalid’, Mr Goyal tore the copy of notification in the assembly.
There was ruckus in the Assembly as BJP MLA O P Sharma accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of not doing any work for the public. Amid uproar, Mr Goyal tore the notification.
Mr Bhartis resolution said the notification was an attempt to encroach the powers of Assembly. It also requested President Pranab Mukherjee to use powers to exempt any such orders for Delhi. The resolution urged the Assembly to write to all MPs about the unconstitutional act of the Home Ministry.
