Monsoon session of Delhi Assembly started on Thursday with an uproar. Aam Aadmi party MLA Ajay Dutt tore the shirt in the assembly to protest against the demolition of the Ravidas temple. He blamed the BJP for this whole controversy and said that the people of the anti-BJP do not want us to stay. He tore his shirt inside the assembly and opened the shirt buttons. The assembly stood for a long time in the campus with a torn shirt, during which his photo was also taken which is viral.

Seeing the uproar over this, the Speaker of the House adjourned the proceedings of the House several times.
