Promise of free water, free electricity, free wi fi, free for free, for Delhiites turned into an office of profit case for Kejriwal and his MLAs. Election Commission today disqualified 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA for holding ‘office of profit’. The recommendation has been sent to President by EC. If President clears the recommendation, the disqualification would reduce AAP’s strength in Delhi Assembly from 42.
1. AAP MLA, Asim Ahmed Khan, was suspended in October 2016, when he was caught demanding bribe from a builder.
2. Minister of SC/ST Welfare and Women and Child Welfare Sandip Kumar was sacked, when he was deeply embroiled in sex scandal
3. Rebel Kapil Mishra was sacked by Kejriwal.
Recently, Kejriwal was accused for selling Rajya Sabha seats for Rs 100 crore.
What is interesting in disqualification saga is that after 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, Congress had also filed a petition in Election Commission in 2016 to seek disqualification of 21 AAP legislators.
India must be prepared for chest beating that “Democracy is in danger” ‘or’ Election Commission was bought by Modi.
