New Delhi (PTI): BJP leaders and rebel AAP legislator Kapil Mishra sat on a dharna at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's office against the "non-performance" of his government, mimicking a protest the ruling dispensation members are holding at the Lt governor's office.
Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta and MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa said the sit-in will continue till their demands are met by the AAP government. "Until the chief minister assures to provide water to the people, we will continue our sit in," Gupta said.
The protest is against the "non-performance" of the Kejriwal government, he said.
Gupta said BJP legislators had tried to raise the water shortage issue in the assembly but they were marshalled out. The chief minister does not come to his office, where would people go to raise their problems, he said.
"We have called on people to reach the CM office to raise problem of water supply," Gupta said. Sirsa said the sit-in will continue until Delhi gets adequate water.
BJP MLA Jagdish Pradhan was also present at the sit-in. BJP workers led by the party's Delhi unit chief Manoj Tiwari staged a protest at the Delhi Secretariat earlier over issues related to water and electricity supply.
