The Delhi Assembly became the site of an overnight protest by the AAP and the BJP as both parties traded charges through the day – and decided to continue the face-off after hours.

Leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party were protesting against what they allege was “corruption” and “money laundering” by L-G Vinai Kumar Saxena during demonetisation. The party’s MLAs have sought a CBI probe against Saxena, who has been at loggerheads with the Delhi government.

Gathered at the Mahatma Gandhi statue a little before midnight, AAP MLAs including Atishi and Durgesh Pathak sang ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ as party leader Rohit Mehraulia strummed the guitar and Dilip Pandey played a drum.
