"He never respected the law or followed it. That is why I am not surprised with the kind of things he is doing," Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said.

"But first I just want to ask him that where did the money that was collected in the IAC movement go? The people have elected them, and they are watching everything," he said.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said: "They made promises to the people and now when it comes to walking the talk they are being escapist and trying every gimmickry to wriggle out of the situation that they themselves have got into."

"People of this country need to ask the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) if they believe in the idea of India as a republic? Because if they believe in this idea, one would not resort to the kind of anarchy that they have resorted to right now," he added.
