Two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs- Somnath Bharti and S.K. Bagga - were forced out of Delhi L-G Anil Baijal's house after they refused to leave following a meeting.

The meeting, chaired by L-G, was convened to consider the public's suggestions and comments on Delhi Development Authority's Master Plan for the national capital.

In a statement, the Raj Niwas said that the two AAP MLAs refused to leave the LG's house on the pretext of joining the 'dharna' of the Chief Minister

"However, after the meeting ended, the two MLAs refused to leave the residential premises of the Lt. Governor on the pretext of joining the 'dharna' of the Chief Minister," the statement said.

"The MLAs were repeatedly requested to end their unauthorised occupation... They refused to leave for about two hours and left only after considerable persuasion," it added.

However, AAP MLA Somnath Bharti accused the LG of ousting them from the Raj Niwas premises.

"Ashamed that the LG in place of hearing us out for two minutes used heavy police led by ACP Sri Tyagi to oust us...," he tweeted.

"Possibly the most potent democratic tool namely dialogue has no place in the Modi era," he added.

Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has been camping in the Raj Niwas since June 11 demanding a direction to the IAS officers to end their undeclared strike and the Centre to approve the state government's proposal to deliver ration to the poor.
