New Delhi: The 52 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, including Manish Sisodia, who were detained by police near Tukhlaq road on their march to the Prime Minister’s residence has been released.
Following the arrest of AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya for allegedly slapping a 60-year-old man and the eventual allegation of misbehaviour from Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, the AAP MLAs had decided to surrender before Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.
Following the news, Section 144 had been imposed at 7 RCR.
“We want to tell the Prime Minister that don’t stop the work in Delhi. Why are you taking revenge on Delhi? You have enmity with me so arrest me. All the MLAs are going there,” Sisodia told the media here.
Sisodia said he had gone to the Ghazipur vegetable market yesterday for a surprise inspection, where he found out that few people were indulging in malpractice among other untoward activities.
“I scolded them and warned to take action against them. They are saying that I misbehaved with them. Of course I misbehaved. If any officer is not working properly, we will scold them. If we are being sent to jail for these, we are surrendering but don’t stop the work in Delhi,” he added.
