The one-day special session of Delhi Assembly starting on Friday is likely to be stormy as AAP legislators will target the Centre and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung over numbers of issues while the Opposition will seek to corner the Kejriwal government over objectionable CD involving its former minister Sandeep Kumar.

Opposition will also target the AAP government over the High Court order quashing the appointment 21 AAP lawmakers as parliamentary secretaries.

The government is likely to get sanction of the Assembly on the revised estimates even as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and two other ministers including Gopal Rai and Imran Hussain, will not attend the proceedings as all three are away from the national capital.

Sources in the Aam Aadmi Party alleged that party legislators will raise the issue of “breach of security” of CM at New Delhi Railway Station in the morning.

The ruling party MLAs are expected to draw the attention of the House on a numbers of issues including breach of CM’s security, interference of the Lt Governor in the functioning of government and infringement on independence of the legislature, party sources said.

The issue of repatriation order of Assembly Secretary Prasanna Kumar by LG will also be raised on floor of the House on Friday.

All three BJP legislators including suspended party MLA Om Prakash Sharma on Thursday met and made a strategy to corner the government.

Opposition leader in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said that he will expose how the AAP Government, Speaker and the secretary have a “hidden agenda” to defend “unconstitutional and illegal activities” of the government.

Gupta said he will also raise the issue of Chief Minister’s absence from the Vidhan Sabha session.

“CM does not seem to be interested in functioning of the assembly. During the last session, out of four days, he was present only for few hours on the last day during which he did not speak at all,” the BJP leader said.
