AAP MLAs disqualified, HC declines stay on poll panel's dramatic move

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party leader Preeti Sharma Menon pay tribute to Rajmata Jijabai on the occasion of her birth anniversary at Buldhana in Maharashtra on Friday

"The Election Commission recommending the disqualification of its 20 MLAs from the Delhi Assembly is one-sided and they have announced their recommendation without listening to our MLAs", Singh said in a press conference. Both BJP and congress have sharpened attack on AAP demanding Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's resignation.

West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee said a Constitutional body can not be used for political vendetta. Disqualification of AAP MLAs was A K Joti's gift to Modi: AAP The EC's decision to disqualify the AAP MLAs was poll panel chief A K Joti's "parting gift" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, senior AAP leader Gopal Rai said on Saturday.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday claimed that the Election Commission's (EC) recommendation to disqualify 20 AAP lawmakers as unconstitutional and have now made a decision to ask president Ram Nath Kovind to hear them out before signing any formal orders.

New Delhi: Expressing his disappointment over Election Commission's recommendation to disqualify 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs in "office of profit" case, party convenor Arvind Kejriwal said that at the end truth "triumphs". It was not that the BJP and the Congress appointed parliamentary secretaries. She said the parliamentary secretaries did not get any pecuniary benefit. "The Chief Election Commission gave enough time to these MLAs to explain their position on the issue and hearing on the matter went on for almost two years", he said. It was then that public prosecutor Prashant Pratel Umrao appealed to the president of India that this was an "unconstitutional" move that should be examined by the EC thoroughly, after recommendation from the president.

He also hit out at the BJP, saying it wants elections so that all schemes and projects initiated by the AAP government can be derailed. He said the BJP stands prepared for elections "any moment".

AFC Title Game: Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots
They held the Texans (twice), Ravens , Steelers , Colts , Bengals , and Browns to single-digits this season. The Patriots have won the 10 games over that stretch by an average margin of 15.7 points per game.

In the present case, the petition originally sought disqualification of 21 MLAs, but one resigned a few months ago.

The disqualification will not put into jeopardy Kejriwal's government because of its huge majority in the Delhi assembly.

"Many of the Kejriwal cabinet members had to resign. 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". Finally, yesterday, the media widely reported that EC had recommended disqualification of MLAs to the President.

"Where is Lokpal? The MLAs and Ministers enjoying perks of power and foreign travel-Where is political probity (sic)?", he further tweeted.
