Delhi BJP demands Speaker Goel’s resignation over letter to Delhi HC

New Delhi, Nov 3 :  The BJP on Friday slammed Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel for his letter to the High Court seeking withdrawal of a letter he had written alleging that a division bench of the court had passed orders against the legislature without ascertaining facts, and demanded his resignation.

“The application moved by the Delhi Assembly Speaker in the Delhi High Court seeking withdrawal of the letter within a couple of days clearly shows that he knew that writing this letter is unconstitutional and anarchic,” Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unit chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

Slamming Goel, the BJP leader said, “The decision to allow or deny the withdrawal of the letter is the prerogative of the court and the party will not like to comment on it.”

“But after this misdeed, Goel has no moral right to continue as the Speaker. He must resign,” Tiwari demanded.

Targetting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “The AAP government should put its views on the matter before the people and Goel should be re
