In a massive blow to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Election Commission on Friday has recommended to the President to disqualify 20 legislators of Aam Aadmi Party for holding offices of profit as parliamentary secretaries. Fifteen of their MLAs have cases against them and 12 were arrested under different charges.
Mizoram was the first state to disolve appointment of Parliamentary secretary after the SC order.
Parliamentary Secretaries assist ministers with their work.
Reacting to the recommendation AAP said the Election Commission was insinuated into such action by the prime minister. Constitutional experts were surprised over the timing of his recommendation to the President.
Congress leaders also feel that aligning with the AAP does not make any sense for them as the latter grew on its vote base in the capital city where the Grand Old Party is yet to retain its grip.
BJP leader Sambit Patra tweeted: "Those who started their political journey against corruption are themselves corrupt".
The disqualification will not put into jeopardy Kejriwal's government because of its huge majority in the Delhi assembly. "The Election Commission verdict is the final nail in the coffin of the Delhi government and also in the tall claims of AAP and its deliverance of the Justice to people of national capital".
"We have sought an appointment with the President". BJP people are having problem because of successes of the AAP government in three years.
Welcoming the EC's decision, the BJP said Delhi CM Kejriwal should immediately resign.
Once the President accepts the EC's opinion, the MLAs stand disqualified and by-elections will have to be held for the 20 Assembly seats. I have nothing personal against Arvind Kejriwal or these AAP MLAs. "20 of his party's MLAs were enjoying ministerial perks will now be disqualified", he said.
