Two Aam Aadmi Party MLAs reportedly assaulted Delhi Chief Secretary, Anshu Prakash at the residence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday at night. Amanatullah Khan, who is considered a close Kejriwal assistant was reportedly among the two MLAs who attacked the official.
After the incident, Prakash met Lieutenant Governor, Anil Baijal and filed a complaint against Aam Aadmi Party MLAs. As per media reports says, Prakash was mistreated during a meeting on the door-to-door delivery of useful government services.
Although, the Chief Minister’s office disprove the evidence saying the incident never took place. Issuing a detailed statement, Kejriwal’s office said,“Delhi CM office firmly denies allegations by the Chief Secretary. There was no incident of assault or attempted an attack by any AAP MLAs. Chief Secretary declines to answer questions saying he wasn’t answerable to MLAs and Chief Minister that he was answerable only to LG. He used offensive language against some MLAs and left without answering any questions. Now he’s making ridiculous allegations.”
“About 2.5 lakh families deprived of rations last month due to the defective implementation of Aadhar. MLAs were under huge pressure from the public. There was a meeting of MLAs at Chief Minister residence,” it added.
Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan also denied Chief Secretary’s statement and termed it a conspiracy to insult Aam Aadmi Party. He said that a quarrel took place between the MLAs and the official but Anshu Prakash was never manhandled.
Reacting to the quarrel, Delhi BJP leader, and MLA OP Sharma hit out at ruling AAP and said that Anshu Prakash must go to the Delhi Police and file an FIR against the MLAs.
Vice-President of Congress Sharmishta Mukherjee collides against Kejriwal-led AAP stating, ”Violence against anyone including a senior official is not the way to resolve anything. There should be a detailed investigation into this.”
Sandeep Dikshit, Congress leader said, ”It states how AAP is involved in malpractices and corruption. Whenever anything good happens Kejriwal and his MLA’s take total credit for it and otherwise responsibility is on government.”
