NEW DELHI: A scuffle broke out between the police personnel and AAP leaders here on Monday during the Arvind Kejriwal-led party’s protest march demanding the resignations of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani and Maharashtra Women and Child Welfare Minister Pankaja Munde.

Carrying banners which read that the four BJP leaders should step down from their respective posts, the protestors raised slogans against the government for not initiating any action against them.

The ruling BJP at the Centre has so far been defending Swaraj and Raje despite opposition demands that the duo be sacked for helping former IPL boss Lalit Modi.

Irani is under sharp criticism following a complaint that she misrepresented her educational qualifications in documents filed in different years with the Election Commission.

The Maharashtra Congress had earlier submitted a complaint to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) alleging violations in purchases made by the Women and Child Welfare Department. According to reports, Munde was alleged to have cleared purchases worth Rs. 206 crore on a single day in February through 24 government resolutions instead of inviting tenders.
