After a tumultuous night on the chair, newly appointed Delhi mayor Dr Shelly Oberoi has requested the councillors from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to let the house run. She also requested that the election of the standing committee be conducted smoothly.

Speaking to The New Indian, Dr Oberoi said, “I request the BJP to let the house run and the election of standing committee members happen smoothly.”

Talking about her first brush with the chair, Dr Oberoi said, “Yesterday we wanted to conduct the election for the Standing Committee as well. But everybody saw what had happened in the house.”

“BJP councillors caused a commotion because they refuse to accept that the people of Delhi have given the AAP a mandate,” Dr Oberoi said.

“Tomorrow, we will try to hold the election for the Standing Committee. I request that the BJP councillors cooperate with us and allow the functioning to continue,” Dr Oberoi added.
