Sacked Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kapil Mishra was marshalled out of the Delhi Assembly during the special session Monday after he called speaker Ram Nivas Goel ‘Dhritarashtra’, news agency PTI reported. This is the third time that Mishra has been evicted from the House since May.

Speaker Goel ordered that Mishra be marshalled out of the Assembly after the former AAP minister referred to him as ‘Dhritarashtra’ – a character from Mahabharata – for not taking any action on his letter.

“Why are you sitting on my letter like Dhritarashtra?” Mishra was quoted as saying addressing Goel. He was referring to a letter he had written to the speaker asking justice for AAP volunteer Simran Kaur who had earlier accused three AAP MLAs of assaulting her

Last week, he was marshalled out following a heated argument between him and legislators of the ruling 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.

Earlier in May, Mishra was escorted out of the House during a one-day session after he and a few AAP MLAs came to blows when the sacked minister held out a banner with allegations of corruption against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

    A BJP Monkey in RSS Snake Shadow. AAP was lucky that this agent of BJP was caught red handed and kicked out of Aam Aadmi Party. Agents like Kapil Mishra are bloat and threat to democracy. He is licking boots of BJP/RSS leaders.

      We are not concerned with parties and their dictatorial ship. what we want is a commission to be setup to look into atrocities committed by AAP in the name of clean. A commission of AAM aadmi to ascertain causes. Some of the people like you will join AAP to defend it but we want truth to be told. aam aadmi wants it.

          Honesty card of Arvind Kejriwal is discarded by Kalil Mishra. Now, Arvind dirty mouth is plastered by his own man. It is failure of Arvind to resolve the crisis within the party.

                  When is your hero going to drag Kejriwal to Tihar jail holding him by his collar? Already one and half are over.
