Sacked water minister Kapil Mishra was marshalled out of the Delhi Assembly on Wednesday, following a scuffle between him and other MLAs from the Aam Aadmi Party. The row between the MLAs began after Mishra was seen holding a banner alleging corruption charges against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. AAP MLAs, including Madan Lal and Jarnail Singh allegedly lunged at him, and dragged Mishra in the House, forcing Speaker Ram Niwas Goel to have him marshalled out.

“I was not allowed to speak. The moment I attempted to speak, four to five AAP MLAs started hitting me. It is perhaps for the first time that MLAs have been used to muffle a dissenting voice inside the House,” Mishra was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. He also alleged the MLAs were ‘prompted’ to charge at him by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

Criticising the AAP MLAs for their unruly behaviour, Delhi Speaker Ram Niwas Goel described the incident as “unfortunate” and “deeply disturbing”.

“Whatever happened today inside the Delhi Assembly is unfortunate. I am deeply disturbed with the incident. Whatever they (AAP MLAs) did was wrong. The MLAs should not have left their seats,” Goel told reporters.

The Delhi Assembly was convened today to pass the state GST Bill. It was adjourned following the ruckus.

Mishra was suspended from the party after alleging that Kejriwal interfered in the water tanker scam investigations, and took money from state health minister Satyendra Jain. Further, Mishra claimed there are ‘massive financial irregularities’ within the party, apart from having laundered money via shell companies.

Watch the incident:


In a letter to Delhi Lt Governor yesterday, Mishra said: “The CM has been putting pressure on the chief secretary since the scam surfaced. It is an attempt to shield the health minister. I seek your direct intervention in the health department as the accused involved in the matter may try to damage proof.”

        Kapil Misra a BJP agent is worst. These are the people " Jis Thali main Khatey hain Usi Main Ched katery hain". Mishra was BJP/RSS Agent planted to harm AAP. The Time he was expelled he was exposed as BJP Agent and Kingpin bent on dividing AAP. God saved AAP from such crook who was using Kumar Vishwas to promote BJP conspiracy to destroy AAP from within.
