‘Sisodia ordered MLAs to attack me’: Kapil Mishra who ‘Thrashed’ inside Delhi Assembly

The Delhi Assembly witnessed dramatic moments on Wednesday when suspended AAP leader Kapil Mishra was marshalled out following a scuffle with party MLAs.

Things turned ugly in the session after Mishra was swarmed by AAP MLA’s who made attempts to strangle him.

In the video, Mishra was seen struggling as he was being assaulted by AAP legislators.

“I have been demanding to speak in Assembly. I was not allowed to speak. Everyone saw it,” Mishra said outside the House. “Kejriwal was laughing inside the Assembly…. I was beaten and punched in the Assembly.”

Speaker warned Mishra to not speak out of turn. Mishra then unfurled a banner asking for the special session. The Speaker then observed that this was not in keeping with the dignity of the assembly and asked marshals to remove Mishra. Things turned ugly as even before the marshals could come, a scuffle broke out between the MLAs and Mishra.

Speaking to the media after the incident Mishra claimed that deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia directed “four-five MLAs” to beat him. Sisodia is yet to respond to the allegation.

“I saw the face of two MLAs Madan Lal and Jarnail Singh. I demand release footage of Vidhan Sabha proceeding,” Mishra said. “As I got up from my seat, they started hitting me. They used their hands and legs. Your cameras saw it all,” Mishra said. “Usually marshals are called to remove a member from the House. This must have been the first time that MLAs were called.”

“I had written a letter to the Speaker on Mr. Kejriwal’s corruption and had asked to be allowed to speak. …but I was attacked,” Mr. Mishra said.
Mishra, who was the water minister in the Delhi cabinet, had accused Kejriwal and health minister Satyendar Jain of misappropriating health funds. He said three big scams were perpetrated in the health sector by the AAP government, including one of more than Rs. 300 crore in the procurement of medicines.

He had posed nine questions to Kejriwal including whether he was aware that AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh’s trip to Russia “was sponsored by a man who is being probed for a Rs. 400-crore high-security number plates scam.”

The BJP said the incident exposed AAP as a frustrated group. “This is how they deal with people who try to raise their voice,” said the party’s Shahnawaz Hussain.
