AAP MLAs’ disqualification row: “Truth will prevail”, says Delhi CM
A day after the national media houses publicised the news that the Election Commission of India recommended the President to disqualify at least twenty Aam Aadmi Party legislators for holding offices-of-profit along with the MLA positions bestowed on them by the people of Delhi, the AAP Supremo and Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, breaking his silence that he has been maintaining since the news was published, said: “truth will prevail”.
The Indian President, Ram Nath Kovind, is not likely to express any objection on the recommendation forwarded to him by the EC.
If the President approves the recommendation, the national capital will witness a crucial by-election soon; such a by-election will be a chance for the national parties like the Congress and BJP to regain their prominence in the state from where all political parties were weeded out during the last assembly election by the AAP.
At present, the national parties are much more powerful than the AAP. In the aftermaths of the last assembly election, the AAP which demonstrated an astounding performance in the election, have suffered several setbacks. It has failed to fulfil several promises and stepped into an unpleasant tug-of-war with the Lieutenant Governor, who has much more powers than the elected government in the special state of Delhi, giving sufferings to the people.
