The BJP is likely to suspend banners down flyovers at multiple locations across Delhi to highlight AAP's "hooliganism in MCD house" that saw a lot of chaos during the mayoral polls on Friday, last week. 

According to a report by Indian Express, BJP members would take to the streets on Wednesday from 9am onwards and display these banners on flyovers in 16 locations including ITO, Azadpur, Peeragarhi, Akshardham, Chirag Dilli, Mangolpuri and the Janakpuri District Centre among others, Delhi BJP spokesperson Harish Khurana said. 

The show of strength will coincide with the heavy traffic in the national capital further aggravated by the repair and construction work that is currently being undertaken by the Public Works Department near the Ashram flyover.

The banners will bear visuals from Friday’s Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House proceedings. 

On Friday, ahead of the oath-taking ceremony of newly elected councillors at the MCD civic centre, AAP and BJP councillors held protests and raised slogans. BJP and AAP councillors also clashed with each other ahead of Delhi Mayor polls.

The maiden meeting of the newly elected MCD House was adjourned on Fridau without electing the mayor and the deputy mayor amid loud protests by AAP councillors over first administering oath to the 10 aldermen. The next date will be announced later, BJP councillor Satya Sharma, the presiding officer overseeing the process, said.

Chaos ensued during the first meeting as AAP councillors and MLAs raised slogans and entered the Well when Sharma began the process of administering oaths to the 10 aldermen. The AAP councillors and MLAs protested over the alderman and not the elected representatives being administered oath first.

The BJP councillors retaliated by raising slogans against AAP and its convener Arvind Kejriwal. Amid the chaos, both sides also alleged manhandling by the opposite camp. The meeting began with Sharma being administered the oath as presiding officer for the elections to the posts of MCD mayor and deputy mayor.
