While the nation mourns 26/11, Arvind Kejriwal calls a special session to discuss the mirchi attack on him

Last year in a special session of Delhi Assembly, Kejriwal had famously described himself as 'Delhi ke maalik'.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has a penchant for skipping work and not attending the Assembly while in session, has called a special session to discuss the ‘chilli powder attack’ on him. A one-day special session will be held today to discuss the ‘chilli powder attack’ as well as alleged ‘mass deletion’ of names from the voters’ list.

The leader of Opposition in the Assembly, BJP’s Vijendra Gupta accused the government of calling a special session to raise ‘fictitious political issues to bluff the public’. Gupta added that Kejriwal government is raising dust and storm over non-existent issues while it does not deem fit to deliberate over serious issues such as pollution control and providing basic civic amenities.

The Congress, which does not have a single member in the legislative assembly, too, has slammed AAP accusing the party of ‘lowering’ the dignity of the House for holding a ‘special session’ for a ‘trivial issue’ like the chilli powder attack. In a letter to the Speaker of Delhi Assembly, Delhi Pradesh Congress Chief Ajay Maken expressed his disbelief that pressing matters such as increasing pollution in Delhi, law and order situation and dengue epidemic gripping the state is ignored while a personal problem of the chief minister is discussed in special assembly session.

Arvind Kejriwal led Delhi government has earlier held special sessions of the Assembly for issues such as demanding a full statehood and to announce to the world that he is the ‘Delhi ke maalik‘. It was also during a special session where BJP MLAs were marshalled out for questioning the government over lack of water supply in the capital. As the party is known to have a penchant for tantrums that can put most toddlers to shame, guessing from the precedent set over past ‘special sessions’, it won’t be surprising if they pass a bill to declare chilli powder as an RSS proposed communal weapon being used by Modiji. The residents of Delhi should be prepared to beg for concessions to use Kashmiri Lal as Tikha Lal has no chances of surviving AAP’s wrath.

We are guessing if a new anti-Mirchi bill is passed by the overwhelmingly AAP dominated Delhi assembly, no vehicles will be allowed to hang Nimbu-Mirchi garlands on the front henceforth. Playing the superhit Govinda song ‘Tujhko Mirchi lagi toh main kya karoon’ will be treated as a punishable offence. Households will have to apply for a government permit to use Tadka in their Dals, which can be applied online and will be home delivered after an inspection. Radio Mirchi will be ordered to undergo a name change if they want broadcasting rights in Delhi.

It is also notable here that today, when the nation is mourning the 10th anniversary of the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, AAP has deemed it fit to call a special session for so trivial an issue. AAP and its MLAs have been trying to gather an unwarranted level of attention and victimhood after the chilli powder attack. They first tried unsuccessfully to pin the blame on BJP. The MLAs have even called to exclude the Delhi Police personnel from the scheme that awards compensation to the families of martyrs because of their apparent ‘failure’ to protect their CM.
