NEW DELHI: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today targeted "political bosses" at the Centre, daring them to arrest all AAP MLAs at once.

"The attitude of their political bosses is that, somehow put the AAP MLAs in jail. They are making excuses left, right and centre and putting them in jail by any means possible. If you want to arrest, then why don't you arrest everyone together," Sisodia said at an Iftaar party organised in Delhi Assembly premises.

In the midst of Delhi government's running battle with the Centre, the deputy CM said, "Why waste Delhi police resources? Today they told them to arrest us which they did. They could have put us under arrest for more time. They will do so again and we will go again."

With a complaint lodged against Sisodia, 52 MLAs of the ruling AAP were detained by police today while they were on their way to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Race Course Road residence to protest the arrest of party MLA Dinesh Mohaniya.

The MLAs were detained for violating prohibitory orders in force around 7 RCR and were later released.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Speaker Ram Niwas Goel, Deputy Speaker Rakhi Birla and few other AAP MLAs were also present.

The Delhi government will organise its annual Iftaar party on June 30 at Indira Gandhi Stadium, Ram Niwas Goel said.
