Armed with a bill doomed to be defeated, Arvind Kejriwal was allowed to play the martyr by the Speaker of Delhi Assembly today who let him introduce the Jan Lokpal Bill despite the letter from the Lieutenant Governor directing him not to do so. An hour-and-a-half after the Assembly session started, Kejriwal in a surprise move got up to seek leave of the House to introduce the bill. The Speaker, who didn't interrupt Kejriwal despite the L-G's message - which only minutes earlier he had read out after members demanded that it be placed before them - nearly brought the House down when he went on to give his permission to table the bill and urged the House to discuss the Bill.
