NEW DELHI: BJP's Member of Parliament from East Delhi Maheish Girri, who is on a hunger strike outside Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's house, performed Yoga at the agitation venue to mark the second International Yoga Day here on Tuesday.

Girri has been on hunger strike outside Kejriwal's residence from Sunday after the Delhi Chief MInister declined to join in an open debate over his accusation that the BJP leader was involved in murder of a New Delhi Municipal Council officer.

"On IDY2016 today, participated in a Yoga Session with all karyakartas, here at the venue of my Anshan," Girri tweeted.

Union Minister Harsh Vardhan, BJP's Delhi unit President Satish Upadhyay and several other leaders joined the hunger strike led by Girri.

New Delhi Municipal Council's estate officer M.M. Khan was shot dead in Jamia Nagar here on May 16 -- a day before he was expected to pass an order on the terms of the lease of The Connaught, a four-star hotel.

Kejriwal had reiterated his demand for the arrest of Girri and urged Delhi Police to probe the relationship between Girri and hotelier Ramesh Kakkar, who ran The Connaught and is the main accused in the murder of Khan.
