Mishra, in his plea, claimed that the Assembly had 27 sessions but Kejriwal was present only seven times in 2017, reported Hindustan Times.

Mishra's petition also alleged that Kejriwal was also not present during the Question Hour in past 40 months, which “showed how serious the CM was in discussing matters related to the people of Delhi and their development and performing duties expected of him”, according to the report.
