The Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken on Tuesday launched a tirade against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), demanding an apology from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the alleged “hooliganism”.
Maken in a tweet said that “Kejriwal should apologise for this hooliganism that took place before him”, while adding that the “beating of Chief Secretary by MLAs in front of the CM is another low and is aimed to divert attention from Govt failures! AAP does not know governance and has failed miserably”.
Kejriwal should apologise for this hooliganism which took place before him-

As per media reports, Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit accused the party for engaging in hooliganism. “It clarifies how AAP is involved in malpractices & corruption. If something good happens Kejriwal and his MLAs take credit & if it’s something bad onus falls on government. Is tarah se haathapaai karna! Koi gundagardi hai kya? (Engaging in fist-fight. Isn’t this hooliganism?)”.
Earlier on Tuesday, Anshu Prakash, the Delhi Chief Secretary, alleged that he was manhandled by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lawmakers at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s home late last night.
The top Delhi bureaucrat has alleged that he was assaulted in the presence of the state Chief Minister. He was, reportedly, summoned to discuss government’s plan to deliver key services at citizens’ doorsteps.
Prakash met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Tuesday to register a complaint against the MLAs, Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jharwal, who allegedly manhandled him. The chief secretary is also likely to lodge an FIR against the AAP MLAs.
However, the Delhi Chief Minister’s office rubbished the allegations saying that the incident never took place.

“Delhi CM office strongly denies allegations by the Chief Secretary. There was no incident of assault or attempted assault by any AAP MLAs,” a statement from Delhi CM’s office said.
Drawing a different picture of the incident, the Aam Aadmi Party has claimed that the Delhi chief secretary refused to answer the MLAs saying that he was only answerable to the L-G and he also reportedly used derogatory remarks.
