NEW DELHI: On the last day of the last Delhi Assembly session, a group of  30 BJP workers, mostly women, barged inside the front gate of  the Assembly and staged a protest on Tuesday, raising slogans against the Aam Aadmi Party government on the issue of dirty water allegedly being supplied in the national capital.The security breach occurred just before beginning of session. According to officials few women were standing outside the gate demanding to meet Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal but there was no clue that they were protestors.

As soon as a car passed through the gates the group barged into the gate holding posters and shouting slogans. Upon entering the Assembly premises, the protestors were  stopped by the security officials and soon, moved outside the gates of the Assembly.

“They (BJP) brought 10-15 women in the House. I cannot allow any hooliganism in the House. This was the last day of the session. I wanted a fruitful discussion. I condemn the act” said Ram Niwas Goel, Speaker of Assembly.Later during the day, BJP leader including Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta along with other MLAs — OP Sharma, MS Sirsa and Jagdish Pradhan — entered the house wearing garlands of onions.

Following the accusations by Speaker Goel, some ruling AAP MLAs trooped into the Well and exchanged heated arguments with opposition members. Meanwhile, Gupta reached near Speaker’s chair and demanded discussion on the issue of dirty water allegedly being supplied in the city.Goel asked Gupta to go back to his seat, failing which he would take a strict action against him. As the Leader of Opposition did not relent, Goel ordered him to be marshalled out of the House.

"The AAP government ran away from discussion in the Assembly on its failure to provide onion at subsidised rates and supply of polluted water to Delhiites.  We had given notice to Assembly for calling attention motion on these important issues. But they have failed to provide subsidised onions and clean drinking water. Kejriwal is falsely accusing the Centre of not supplying onion to Delhi. The truth is that Kejriwal government is responsible for the onion fiasco.  It cancelled its October 4 order saying that there is no need for onion in Delhi,"said Gupta.
