Arvind Kejriwal comments on MLA disqualification from AAP

Karnataka

Patra said the "self guilt" of Kejriwal was evident as he tried to bring a law retrospectively to keep the appointment of the MLAs as parliamentary secretaries out of the purview of the office of profit.

West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee said a Constitutional body can not be used for political vendetta.

The AAP leader also said that recommending disqualification 20 of AAP's MLAs was the CEC Achal Kumar Joti's parting gift to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Blatant violation of principles of natural justice.

"It's very unfortunate and sad that the Election Commission has recommended 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs be disqualified from the Delhi Assembly for holding offices of profit".

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators, facing disqualification from the Delhi assembly for allegedly holding offices of profit, have sought time from President Ram Nath Kovind to present their views, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said on Saturday. While some felt he should have disposed off the case long ago, others felt he should have at least given the AAP notice before handing out his order.

Meanwhile, a 30-year-old lawyer, Prashant Patel, filed an application in 2015 to the president's office, questioning the appointment of AAP MLAs as parliamentary secretaries. She said the parliamentary secretaries did not get any pecuniary benefit.

The AAP and Kejriwal stood exposed before the people, Patra said. Constitutional experts were surprised over the timing of his recommendation to the President.

Questioning the move to associate Puducherry BJP president V Saminathan with the inauguration of a Passport office in Karaikal, the AIADMK leader said, "Narayanasamy had not registered protest against inclusion of the name of BJP president in both the official invitation and also the plaque erected at the venue of the function". "There is a tacit understating between BJP and AAP, which is why EC has delayed the recommendation", he claimed. "Shouldn't Arvind Kejriwal resign?"

While the AAP has approached the Delhi High Court against the EC recommendation, it still has a comfortable majority in the 70-seat Delhi Assembly, retaining 46 MLAs, 11 more than the 35 halfway mark.

"Kejriwal has no right to continue.of his cabinet ministers removed on corruption charges!"

"We welcome the EC decision disqualifying 20 AAP MLAs". The by-elections for these 20 seats, if and when they are held, would be taken as a referendum on his government.
