Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh said today that he would file a petition in the high court seeking details of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attendance in Parliament. Singh’s move was prompted by a PIL in the Delhi High Court filed by disgruntled AAP legislator and former minister Kapil Mishra earlier today over “low attendance” of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the Delhi Assembly.
Singh asked Mishra why he had kept mum on alleged obstructions by Modi and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal in the implementation of various projects of the Delhi government, and questioned if his opposition to Kejriwal was “sponsored”.
“I am filing a case in the high court for getting Narendra Modi’s attendance and ensure his presence in Parliament. Why does Kapil Mishra keep mum on Modi who obstructs every work by Delhi government?” Singh tweeted in Hindi.
In another tweet, he said “Despite appeal by the entire opposition, Narendra Modi does not come to Parliament, Modi ji and LG only create hurdles in various schemes of Delhi government but Kapil Mishra does not utter a word, is Mishra’s protest sponsored.
He said that despite the opposition’s repeated pleas to the Prime Minister to speak on critical issues like demonetisation, price rise, farmers’ suicide, unemployment, bank scams, mob lynching, women safety, etc., the Prime Minister remains mum.
“Every 14 days he speaks on the radio in Mann Ki Baat, but does not speak in Parliament. Despite being present in his office inside Parliament House premises, he does not come to the House,” the AAP MP said.
