Starting Monday, the Congress will be holding demonstrations against the AAP government, seeking the resignation of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Yadav, too, upped the ante in favour of the AAP, saying constitutional bodies were being "misused".

Questioning the move to associate Puducherry BJP president V Saminathan with the inauguration of a Passport office in Karaikal, the AIADMK leader said, "Narayanasamy had not registered protest against inclusion of the name of BJP president in both the official invitation and also the plaque erected at the venue of the function". Although it had won 67 seats in the 2015 elections, four of its MLAs are now under suspension, and the Rajouri Garden seat went to the BJP in a by-poll. And now, the election commission's decision to disqualify 20 ministers from the party has once again brought him closer to controversy. The legislators then went to the Election Commission arguing that since the High Court had declared their appointment null and void, the poll panel could not hear a petition against them for holding an office that never existed.

Once the President accepts the EC's opinion, the MLAs stand disqualified and by-elections will have to be held for the 20 Assembly seats. BJP people are having problem because of successes of the AAP government in three years. "Arvind Kejriwal should take moral responsibility for defeat and resign", he said.

The party said it has chose to also ask President Ram Nath Kovind to hear them out before signing the formal orders over the issue of disqualification. "They are taking revenge from people of Delhi, the government and Chief Minister of Delhi" he said.
