Soon after Girri sat on hunger strike demanding apology from Kejriwal, the hashtag #BaharAaoKejriwal started trending on social media.

Amid tussle between the two leaders, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, who joined the protest by Maheish Girri outside Delhi Chief Minister's residence, demanded the Delhi Government be dismissed if Arvind Kejriwal refuses to apologise to the party MP over his allegations related to the recent murder of an NDMC official.

Swamy also attacked Lt Governor Najeeb Jung for "failing" to protect MPs from attack by "his government" and accused him of seeking guidance from Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's political secretary Ahmed Patel.

Girri has been sitting on a hunger strike since yesterday.

Kejriwal had, in a letter, accused Jung of trying to protect Girri in the case of murder of M M Khan, an official of the New Delhi Municipal Council, a body run by the Central Government.

Khan, an estate officer, was shot dead on May 16 in Jamia Nagar in South Delhi, a day before he was scheduled to clear an order on the lease terms of a hotel functioning on property leased out by the civic body.
