Delhi High Court gives relief to the 20 AAP MLAs

Delhi High Court gives relief to the 20 AAP MLAs

The Delhi High court provided a much needed relief to the Aam Admi Party on Firday, as it set aside the disqualification of the 20 MLA, and has passed the case to Election commission, which is going to them a chance to present their case via verbal hearing.

Arvind Kejriwal wrote on Twitter about the decisions, “Truth has won. AAP MLAs, who were elected by the people, were disqualified in a wrongful manner. The Delhi High Court has given justice to the public of Delhi. This is a win for the public of Delhi, and we give them our good wishes.”

AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj  has said that according to the principles of natural justice, a person who has been accused, should have a chance to present his or her case before the law, and the twenty MLAs had been denied that opportunity. The MLA’s have been holding offices of profit, which is not allowed since they had been appointed parliamentary secretaries. This will surely be a relief for Arvind Kejriwal, who has been under scrutiny ever since the MLA’s had been suspended.

The Election Commission, on 19 January recommended the disqualification of  these 20 AAP MLAs — Alka Lamba, Adarsh Shastri, Sanjeev Jha, Rajesh Gupta, Kailash Gahlot, Vijendra Garg, Praveen Kumar, Sharad Kumar, Madan Lal, Shiv Charan Goyal, Sarita Singh, Naresh Yadav, Rajesh Rishi, Anil Kumar, Som Dutt, Avtar Singh, Sukhvir Singh Dala, Manoj Kumar, Nitin Tyagi and Jarnail Singh.
