New Delhi: Two men, who claimed to be AAP members, created ruckus in the Delhi Assembly on Wednesday when they threw printed slips of paper alleging corruption by the Delhi government and shouted slogans against Minister Satyendar Jain. The two were taken in custody.
Sacked AAP leader Kapil Mishra identified the two as AAP members Jagdeep Rana and Rajan Madan. He alleged they were beaten up in the assembly premises. The paper slips the two men threw in the Assembly alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was protecting the corrupt and said they carried out the act to “make the deaf hear and the speech-impaired speak”.
“Our act today was totally non-violent and we had no intention to hurt any one,” the note said.
“We have been workers of Aam Aadmi Party since the Anna Hazare movement. We left our studies, work, family, everything and jumped in the movement against corruption and this is the government we made… Today when there are so many evidences of corruption against Satyendar Jain, and Arvind Kejriwal is openly saving him,” it said.
The day’s business was on in the Delhi Assembly, which is in session, when the two men who were sitting in the visitor’s gallery stood up and started shouting slogans against Jain, calling him corrupt, and threw paper slips in the hall where the legislators were sitting.
Speaker Ram Niwas Goel immediately ordered the arrest of the two men, who tried to flee but were caught by police and a few Aam Aadmi Party legislators.
According to sources, Rana was taken to hospital because of the injuries he received after being beaten up, while Madan was taken in custody. Rana was an AAP candidate in 2013 from Adarsh nagar constituency in Delhi while Madan is a leader from the Punjab unit of AAP.
“The two were beaten up by AAP MLAs in the assembly premise. They should have taken legal action against them but beating them up was not right,” Mishra said.
A Delhi police official said they have not detained the two men so far.
