Can seek disqualification of other rebel MLAs too: AAP
| Friday | 21st June, 2019
New Delhi, June 20Days after the AAP approached the Delhi Assembly Speaker seeking disqualification of its two rebel MLAs, the ruling party in the National Capital on Thursday said it can take similar action against its other rebel legislators.
Bhardwaj further said, “Action can be taken against other rebel MLAs too.”Two other MLAs who can be on the party’s radar are Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba and Karawal Nagar legislator Kapil Mishra as both of them have been vocal against the party’s actions and decisions.
There is a due process before seeking my disqualification and I have not received any notice directly from the AAP,” Sehrawat said.
Last year, the Delhi High Court restored the membership of 20 disqualified AAP MLAs and referred the case back to the Election Commission (EC).
The HC had said the disqualification of AAP MLAs was bad in law, and therefore remanded their plea back to the EC which will hear it afresh.
