The Delhi BJP has decided to bring a no-confidence motion against the Kejriwal government during the assembly session that is scheduled to begin from today. The session is likely to witness heated exchanges between the treasury and opposition benches, with the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) targeting Lieutenant Governor (LG) V K Saxena and the Centre over the arrest of Manish Sisodia.

The session will start with an address by the LG and the budget will be presented on March 21, officials said. The BJP unit also said that it has given a notice to extend the duration of the session from five days to 10. 

What issues will be raised by MLAs?

A senior AAP leader said that the session will have discussions on the arrest of former Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia and how the lieutenant governor was interfering in the works of the elected government. 

Meanwhile in a joint statement, the BJP MLAs said that they will corner the Kejriwal government as its two ministers were behind bars and it was facing allegations of "scams" involving liquor policy, classroom construction, electricity subsidy, and snooping by its Feedback Unit. "In such a situation, this government has no moral or constitutional right to be in office and a no-confidence motion is being brought against the government," it said.

Issues such as corruption, air pollution, drinking water crisis, collapse of the transport system, non-opening of new schools and colleges, lack of teachers, irregularities in mohalla clinics, and the Yamuna pollution will be raised by the opposition MLAs, according to a statement by Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri. 

Delhi minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said the session will focus on making Delhi a modern, clean and development-oriented city. "There will be more focus on providing funds for sanitation, cleaning garbage mountains, making world class infrastructure in Delhi, making it development oriented in terms of good transport, making well connected network and bringing more electric buses," he said.
