On Thursday Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and three of his ministers at Lieutenant Governor's home, a host of leaders from various opposition parties pledged support to the protest, attacking the BJP-led government at the centre.
It came on a day a huge banner was hung from the top of the Delhi Secretariat building, mocking the protest by Mr Kejriwal. "There is no strike here. People of Delhi are on duty. The Chief Minister of Delhi is on leave," the banner read.
Mr Kejriwal reacted with shock, alleging that the "BJP has captured Delhi Secretariat".
"Absolutely shocking. How was it allowed? Who allowed this to happen? Where was Police, Security, Bureaucracy?" he tweeted.
