Office of profit case: AAP to hold emergency meeting on prevailing situation

Karnataka

The Election Commission's recommendation to disqualify the legislators may lead to the AAP's removal from the Delhi Assembly.

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

The 20 MLAs set to be disqualified include, Adarsh Shastri (Dwarka), Alka Lamba (Chandni Chowk), Anil Bajpai (Gandhi Nagar), Avtar Singh (Kalkaji), Kailash Gahlot (Najafgarh) - who is also a minister - Madan Lal (Kasturba Nagar), Manoj Kumar (Kondli), Naresh Yadav (Mehrauli), Nitin Tyagi (Laxmi Nagar), Praveen Kumar (Jangpura).

Justice Palli on Friday said she was not inclined to pass any order or issue notice and asked the EC to clarify the queries raised by her.

Spurred by the news of Election Commission's recommendation for disqualification of 20 ruling AAP MLAs in the office of profit case, the Delhi Congress today got down to planning for possible bypolls in the affected constituencies, party sources said. The EC gave its opinion to the president on a complaint by advocate Prashant Patel, a member of the Hindu Legal Cell, in June 2015, who petitioned then President Pranab Mukherjee alleging illegality in the appointment of Parliamentary Secretaries.

The BJP was quick to question if the AAP government had any "moral right" left after the EC's recommendation to the president.

The Office of Profit injury has come at a time when the party is still recovering from the humiliation of an internal "2 G (Gupta) scam" of AAP.

BJP will gain significant margin in the seats if the Delhi Bypolls are conducted given the significant importance of this election in the 2019 General Election. "The disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs was his gift to Modi".

In the present case, the petition was made to disqualify 21 MLAs, but one resigned a few months back. Arvind's tenure as the Chief Minister of Delhi has been tumultuous ever since he won the elections with majority three years ago. AAP has accused that Joti is repaying to Modi by deciding on the fate of the 20 MLAs. Then Kejriwal introduced the Bill without seeking prior approval from LG (remember Delhi is a partial state and LG is the executive head). He said it was disappointing that the EC had allowed "undue" adjournments to AAP MLAs, which cost the people of Delhi dear.

"Where is Lokpal? The MLAs and ministers enjoying perks of power and foreign travel-Where is political probity", he tweeted.

He appealed to President Ram Nath Kovind to hear the AAP's views.
