Led by BJP leader Harsh Vardhan, the protesters held up placards demanding Bharti’s ouster and raised slogans against him.

"It is our right to demand the sacking of the Law Minister who has been most unlawful," Harsh Vardhan told the media.

The lone Shiromani Akali Dal MLA also accompanied the BJP legislators during the protest. The BJP MLAs said the protest would continue till Bharti was sacked.

Kejriwal came out of his office and had a brief chat with Harsh Vardhan.

The protests follow what critics say was a vigilante foray by Bharti into a south Delhi neighbourhood at night following complaints from residents about a drug-and-prostitution ring allegedly involving some Africans.

The campaign led to a stand-off with Delhi Police, eventually forcing Kejriwal to stage a controversial protest against the police in the city. Bharti has so far denied any wrongdoing.
