AAP MLAs seek to meet President Murmu, to inform about 'Operation Lotus'text_fields
New Delhi: Atishi Marlena, an AAP MLA, claimed on Thursday that she had asked President Droupadi Murmu for some time so that she could inform her about the BJP's alleged efforts to "destabilise" state governments across the nation.
This occurs one day after the CBI allegedly "received" a complaint against the purported "Operation Lotus" of the BJP.
"I have sought time with the custodian of democracy of India - the Hon'ble President," Atishi tweeted. "A delegation of @AamAadmiParty MLAs wants to meet her to discuss 'Operation Lotus' - the attempts of BJP to destabilise state governments across the country," she added.
On Wednesday, a 10-member delegation of the AAP MLAs including Atishi went to meet CBI Director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal to demand a probe into BJP's alleged attempts to topple other parties' governments in the state even though his office had not given any response to their request for the meeting.
As they were not allowed to enter the CBI headquarters, the AAP legislators sat on a dharna outside in protest.
Amid the agitation, some CBI officials took AAP's chief whip in Delhi Assembly Dilip K Pandey and Kalkaji MLA Atishi inside the agency premises to lodge their complaints.
"We finally lodged the complaint and got a receipt as well. But, it is very unfortunate that 10 elected representatives of the people were made to wait for almost two hours on the road and none of the officials met us," Atishi had told reporters.
It seems the CBI gets scared when there is a complaint against the BJP, she had charged.
