The protest was led by Delhi minister Raaj Kumar Anand, AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj and party leader Adil Ahmad Khan.On January 6, the maiden meeting of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House was adjourned without electing mayor and deputy mayor as BJP and AAP councillors exchanged heated words and came to blows over presiding officer Satya Sharma administering oath to the aldermen first and not the elected representatives.

Only four aldermen could take oath before the House plunged into chaos. The AAP alleged that the BJP made the aldermen take oath first in order to get them voting rights for the mayor and deputy mayor elections.”We are here to protest against what was done on January 6. We feel that these nominated aldermen were administered oath first as they might be given voting rights.

We want a statement from the LG that they will not vote and only then our protest will end,” said AAP’s mayoral candidate Shelly Oberoi, as quoted by the news agency PTI. Lt Governor V K Saxena had nominated 10 aldermen to the MCD House on January 3.

The AAP had alleged that all the nominated members were BJP workers and the civic body sent their names directly to Saxena without keeping the city government in the loop. Aldermen refers to people who are experts in their fields. However, they do not have voting rights in the mayoral election.
