No relief for AAP: Delhi HC turns down petition of 20 MLAs disqualification

AAP moved to the Delhi High Court on Friday afternoon

NEW DELHI: In a major blow to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Delhi High Court on Friday evening refused to grant interim relief to the 20 party legislators, disqualified for allegedly holding offices of profit.

In a huge jolt to the Aam Aadmi Party, the Election Commision recommended the disqualification of 20 MLAs of the party for allegedly holding offices of profit as Parliamentary Secretaries.

Taking note of the petition, Delhi HC asked the counsel for the poll panel to apprise it urgently whether any such recommendation has been made to the President by the Election Commission.

Justice Rekha Palli asked the EC counsel to take instruction and inform about the development so that the hearing can resume soon.
