As per House rules a Member cannot even take a Mobile phone inside then how did the fake EVM get in
DELHI BJP TO SUBMIT A COMPLAINT TO THE LT. GOVERNOR AND DEMAND ENQUIRY AS TO HOW MLA SOURABH BHARDWAJ ENTERED THE ASSEMBLY HOUSE WITH A FAKE E.V.M.
New Delhi, 10th May. BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Manoj Tiwari along with MP Shri Ramesh Bidhuri and former MLA Sardar Arvinder Singh Lovely addressed a Press Conference today and said that Delhi BJP strongly condemns MLA Sourabh Bhardwaj’s unauthorized entry with a fake E.V.M. into the Delhi Legislative Assembly who gave a fake hacking demo in the presence of Speaker and the Chief Minister and the subsequent passing of an illegal resolution for conducting elections through ballot papers. BJP leaders said that we shall complain to the Hon’ble Lt. Governor in this connection and demand inquiry into the unauthorized entry of the MLA with fake E.V.M. in the Assembly. Pradesh General Secretary Shri Kuljeet Singh Chahal and Media Incharge Shri Praveen Shankar Kapoor were present on this occasion.
Shri Manoj Tiwari said that whatever happened with the E.V.M. in the Delhi Assembly is not only insult to the Legislative process but also insult to the Election Commission of India and widely respected the Electoral System of India at international level.
Shri Tiwari said that under the Section-6 (2) of NCT of Delhi Act, 1991, it has been clearly provided that the power to call, suspend or prorogue the session of the Assembly shall vest unto the Lt. Governor of Delhi but ignoring all the constitutional provisions Arvind Kejriwal Government has not got issued the proclamation to prorogue the session. The House meetings are adjourned and recalled without informing the Lt. Governor of Delhi because if the adjournment is intimated to him then it would become mandatory to take his approval to call a new session.
Shri Tiwari said that as per the rules of the House no member can bring a prohibited item in the House. As per the Parliamentary proceedings rules even a glass of water can be placed on the table of the House only with the permission of the Speaker and here it is surprising matter which needs to be inquired as to how the MLA managed to enter the House with a fake E.V.M.
Shri Tiwari said that due to his despotic nature many of his founder members deserted Arvind Kejriwal, many member of his Legislature Party started avoiding him and he has to give them lucrative political appointments again and again to keep them in the party and the people are totally disconnected due to his corrupt administration.
Shri Tiwari has said that the situation in which Arvind Kejriwal has put his party today perhaps every colleague will quote him famous Urdu Sher “Tu Idhar Udhar ki na Baat Kar, Yeh Bataa ki Kaafila Luta Kyun, Mujhe Rehjano se Gila Nahi, Teri Rehbari ka Sawal hai” and ask him when will he understand that due to despotic-anarchic, anti-development politics people are completely disconnected with him.
Shri Tiwari said that the Kejriwal Government stands inundated in corruption and the EVM Tamasha has been done to divert the attention of the people from the allegations of corruption and mis-governance. He said that whatever was witnessed in the Vidhansabha yesterday if we describe in common language it was a fake demonstration of a fake EVM by fake people.
Delhi BJP President said that in the history of the country it is for the first time that a Minister has accused his Chief Minister of corruption and the way we saw the Chief Minister speaking in feeble voice in the Assembly yesterday it appears that there is truth behind Minister Kapil Mishra’s allegations.
Sardar Arvinder Singh Lovely said the way Arvind Kejriwal Government has not allowed proclamation to prorogue the House and repeatedly calls special and urgent sessions has made a mockery of Legislative arrangements. History is witness that between 1993 to 2013 in 20 years only thrice did any Government call a special session of the Assembly. First when the Hon’ble Supreme Court banned the plying of Diesel buses in Delhi, second time it was convened to amend the House rules and the third time to trifurcate the MCD.
Sardar Lovely said that above examples evidently show that the special emergent sessions can be called only on unavoidable public interest reason but the way Kejriwal Government has called 5 to 6 special sessions during last 5 years, it has downgraded the dignity of the assembly meetings.
He said that as per Assembly’s Conduct of Business Rules 61 (25) not even a MLA can enter the House with any non listed or prohibited item. He cited an example of 2013 when Aam Aadmi Party MLAs entered the House wearing their party caps but after the objection of the then Leader of the Opposition the Speaker directed the MLAs to remove their caps which were a prohibited item.
Shri Ramesh Bidhuri said that now Kejriwal may either give a demo of E.V.M. or accuse the Central Government and the BJP but the reality is that his falsehood has been exposed. In the 2015 Assembly election Kejriwal’s Party secured 52% votes which came down to 26% in 2017 Corporation Elections due to anti development politics and if today Assembly Elections are held then Kejriwal’s party will not get more than 13% votes.
