NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP MLAs today met Lt Governor (L-G) Anil Baijal and demanded the "dismissal" of the Arvind Kejriwal government" over the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash at the chief minister's residence.

The delegation led by Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, Vijender Gupta, alleged "complicit connivance" of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia in the incident.

The Delhi Police yesterday registered an FIR on a complaint by Prakash who alleged that he was assaulted by AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan and others during a meeting at the chief minister's residence on Monday night.

Khan and another AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal have been arrested by the police.

"The complaint of the chief secretary clearly states that no one tried to save him during the assault.This implies that the CM and the Deputy CM along with the MLAs were equally guilty of connivance in the offence," Gupta said in a statement.

Several AAP MLAs were also present in the meeting.

Though Prakash claimed that he was questioned over the delay in government advertisements, the AAP dispensation claimed he was questioned over complaints about distribution of rations in Delhi.

"The BJP MLAs submitted before the L-G that the Kejriwal government had no right to continue in power and demanded its early dismissal," the statement said.

AAP leaders want to create an atmosphere of "fear" and "unquestioned compliance of dictates" in the mind of senior officers of IAS, Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Services (DANICS) and Delhi Administrative Subordinate Services (DASS) cadres, Gupta alleged.
