New Delhi: The inauguration of Delhi’s iconic Signature Bridge on Sunday evening witnessed a high drama after clashes between BJP and AAP workers.

In the latest ANI video, it is seen Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan pushes Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari during the inauguration.

 

"Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan pushed me (during the inauguration of Delhi's Signature Bridge), the whole incident took place in the presence of Delhi CM. I am going to file an FIR over the incident. Khan's bail should be cancelled immediately," said Manoj Tiwari.

A video by ANI showed police intervening in a scuffle between a group accompanying Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and people trying to stop them.

 

“In my constituency (North East Delhi.), I re-started construction of the bridge after it was stalled for many years and now Arvind Kejriwal is organising an inauguration ceremony,” Tiwari said.

 “I was invited to the inauguration event. I am MP from here. So what’s the problem? Am I a criminal? Why has the police surrounded me? I’m here to welcome him (Kejriwal). AAP and police have misbehaved with me,” he added.

Earlier, Tiwari had expressed displeasure over not being invited to the inaugural function and took a dig at Kejriwal government saying he will be present at the bridge to welcome the Chief Minister.

 

Replying to Tiwari's tweet, Sisodia had said that entire Delhi including he (Tiwari) were invited to the inauguration function and expected him to maintain dignity of the event. The bridge will be thrown open for public on Monday.

Kejriwal, on the other hand, blamed the BJP for creating chaos.

Reacting to the incident, Kejriwal tweeted:
