NEW DELHI: Ruckus erupted amid proceedings in the MCD House on Monday as the opposition demanded the formation of a Standing Committee.
Several BJP councillors raised from their seats holding banners that read ‘Sthayi Samiti Gathan Karo’ (Set up a Standing Committee) and raised slogans.
Ruckus began within ten minutes of the proceedings as the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House convened a meeting on Monday.
The BJP had alleged the AAP knows it is not in a position to get a majority in the MCD’s Standing Committee poll as many of its own councillors will not vote for the party.
Earlier, Delhi Mayor Shelly Oberoi moved the Supreme Court seeking a direction to allow the functions of the Standing Committee to be exercised by the MCD till the panel is constituted. Previously during a special session of the MCD, Oberoi had proposed vesting the powers of the Standing Committee in the House.
