The BJP attacked the Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday over Delhi Police's charge sheet against chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and his party members in the chief secretary assault case.
Demanding the chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to step down from his post on moral grounds BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said,"It is a shameful day in the history of Delhi's polity as the chief minister and the deputy chief Minister stand accused of "criminal conspiracy" in the case of assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash".
"The chief minister should own moral responsibility for the attack on the chief secretary and hand over his charge to some other party colleague till the court decides the matter," he said.
Responding to this, AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj attacked the Narendra Modi government alleging that a "conspiracy" was hatched to defame the chief minister, his deputy Manish Sisodia and 11 party MLAs accused in the case.
"A midnight conspiracy to defame the Delhi Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister and 11 MLAs in a false and laughable case, was hatched at the highest level by the Modi government through its politically appointed Lieutenant Governor and the pro-BJP Chief Secretary," Bhardwaj said.
The police on Monday filed a charge sheet against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia over the alleged attack on a top bureaucrat Anshu Prakash on the evidence and statements of many.
