The Delhi BJP has decided to stage a dharna and take a protest march to Delhi Assembly on the first day of the Budget session. Leader of the Opposition, Vijender Gupta, said that the three BJP MLAs have served a notice to the Speaker for discussing 27 public issues and will move private member resolutions on six issues.
These issues range from including regularisation of unauthorised colonies, appointment of Lokayukta and cancellation of the membership of Jitender Singh Tomar.
South Delhi MP Ramesh Bidhuri and Gupta condemned the Kejriwal government for dropping the Question Hour from the business of the first four days.

“This is the first time that a pre-decided session will not be having a Question Hour. This shows the contempt and callousness with which the Kejriwal government deals with constitutional procedures,” Bidhuri said.
“Delhi is facing a power crisis but the government is trying to show that there is no crisis at all. Be it school admissions, health services or other municipal services, people are harassed due to the obstinacy of this government. Officers and engineers do not trust the government so development work is not progressing,” he claimed.
The BJP also alleged that the AAP government has been lenient on auditing of private power companies.
The proposed hike in power tariff goes against their promise of cheap power supply to the capital, a Delhi leader said.
