In a scathing attack on the BJP, Kejriwal on Friday alleged that the opposition party’s ‘Operation Lotus’ to topple his government has failed as it could not break any AAP MLA.
Kejriwal had said, “I want to bring a trust vote in the assembly to prove to the people of Delhi that BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus Delhi’ has become ‘Operation Muddi’.”
He had said that the BJP’s fight was not against corruption and that its ‘Operation Lotus’ was a way to grab power by deceit.
The BJP hit back, accusing Kejriwal of using the assembly for political campaigning and pretending to divert people’s attention from his government’s liquor “scam”.
Significantly, all eight BJP MLAs were on Friday thrown out of the House through marshals for the entire day’s proceedings.
AAP has 62 MLAs and BJP eight in the 70-member Delhi Assembly.
