Monkey roams around the seats of AAP MLAs in Delhi Assembly, snake also found

In some “monkey business” which happened in the National capital, a money dodged heavy security at the Delhi assembly on Thursday and started to roam around. As he got inside the assembly premises, he decided to do a bit of sightseeing and moved around the benches reserved for the opposition before making his way towards the seats of AAP MLAs.

The doors of the assembly were soon opened to throw the monkey out but by then he had already left the premises after pestering all the MLAs present inside. This incident happened at about 4 PM on Thursday ,when senior politicians like Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and Leader of opposition Vijender Gupta were debating on the issue of guest teachers.

Delhi Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal though was most probably absent because, as alleged by rebel AAP MLA Kapil Mishra, he hasn’t yet attended a single proceeding of the ongoing monsoon session.

Apparently monkeys aren’t the only issue, the Delhi assembly is also reportedly infested with snakes. A couple of them were caught just a couple of days before the current monsoon session had began. This risk of infestation means that the forest department conducts regular checks of the assembly premises.

This isn’t the only time animals have been found creating a menace around the legislative buildings of the country. It had been reported in the past about the monkey and dogs bothered our Parliament. In 2014 the then Union Minister for Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu had stated in the parliament that efforts were being made to curb the menace.

In order to do so, the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) had hired 40 youths who were given training to disguise themselves as monkeys (possibly with the help of monkey costumes) to try and scare away the langurs. Dog catchers too were mobilised to make bi-weekly visits to catch catch non-immunised and stray dogs.

This probably wasn’t taken up on a long term basis as a monkey entered the parliament premises in 2016 and stayed over there for about 30 minutes.
