20 AAP MLA likely to face disqualification, High court bench rejects plea to pass interim order

Written by Abhishek Rana

Delhi High court rejected the plea of the Aam admi party to pass any interim order, thus, giving another blow to the party in AAP 20 MLAs disqualification case. Earlier in the day, names of 20 AAP party ministers were sent by Chief Election Commissioner Achal Kumar Jyoti to President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, recommending disqualification from the Delhi Legislative Assembly for holding ‘Office of Profit’.

The Aam Aadmi Party has been mired in many controversies since it took office three years ago, from being blamed of corruption to its inability to control pollution to other watergate scandals. Kejriwal government has cried foul many times alleging conspiracy and invented obstacles in its short life span of delhi rule.

Kailash Gahlot, who is facing disqualification is the worst hit in the party because he is also the transport minister of the Kejriwal government and this news comes only when the party was trying to broaden the transportation facilities across the capital. Earlier today, party filed a plea in high court for passing a interim order, saying that they should rethink the decision since the election commission didn’t even hear their part of the story, and it is unfair to target 20 ministers from the part without even considering their words.
