The House had to be adjourned due to a scuffle and scuffle between AAP and BJP councilors amid the ongoing election for the Mayor of the capital Delhi. Now the election of Delhi Mayor will be held on the date of the upcoming House, the date of which will be decided by Deputy Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena.
Let us tell you that Delhi was going to get a mayor today i.e. on Friday, about a month after the election. But due to the first oath being administered to the nominated members, an uproar started. BJP councilors also came forward when AAP councilors protested. Due to this, fighting and scuffle started between the councilors of both the parties. During this, chairs were also thrown on each other from both sides, as well as tables were broken.
The proceedings of the House were stopped twice to stop the uproar, but the uproar continued from both sides. The House had to be adjourned due to the uproar. This has happened for the first time in the history of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi that the House was adjourned on the day of the Mayor’s election without the Mayor’s election. Now the LG will fix the next date of the House and on that day the Mayor of Delhi will be elected.
