Delhi High Court refused to grant any relief to AAP MLA's

The ECI recommended to the President the disqualification of 20 MLA's who were appointed as parliamentary secretaries by the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi.

Congress and BJP parties were quick to jump on the situation, and demanded that Arvind Kejriwal should resign, on moral grounds, of all things. "It is odd that the CEC has recommended disqualification of AAP MLAs without giving a notice or a final hearing to legislators that too on his last working day", former Lok Sabha secretary-general PDT Achary told Mirror. "Even if justice was denied us in the court, we will go to the people's court which is the biggest court", he said.

The Opposition in Delhi is awaiting "clarity" on the Election Commission's recommendation to disqualify 20 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs with seemingly much more eagerness than the legislators themselves.

Sisodia also alleged that his MLAs were not given a chance to present their case.

Anbalagan said AIADMK will give 15 days time to the MLAs "to relieve themselves of posts of chairmen and Parliamentary Secretary so as to remain only as legislators as my intention is not to disturb them". "However, yesterday (Friday), the Commission scrapped their membership of the Assembly without any notice", said AAP leader Gopal Rai.

The AAP has previously dubbed Patel's petition an action taken by him at the behest of the BJP.Patel dismisses the allegation. Although it had won 67 seats in the 2015 elections, four of its MLAs are now under suspension, and the Rajouri Garden seat went to the BJP in a by-poll.

Netanyahu to visit Delhi, Mumbai
On January 15, Netanyahu will meet with the Indo-Israeli CEO forum here and address a separate business event. The Israeli prime minister will travel to Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Agra also.

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

The AAP claims that the Commission, under Joti, has acted under the pressure of the Modi government and done its bidding in disqualifying the party MLAs.

Meanwhile following the shocking move, the AAP has approached the Delhi High Court against EC's recommendation to disqualify its MLAs. Then Kejriwal introduced the Bill without seeking prior approval from LG (remember Delhi is a partial state and LG is the executive head).

The party said it has made a decision to also ask President Ram Nath Kovind to hear them out before signing the formal orders over the issue of disqualification.

AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal, however, maintained a stoic silence throughout Friday, which he broke only later in the evening with a tweet. "20 of his party's MLAs were enjoying ministerial perks will now be disqualified", he said.
