AAP legislatures dancing

24, Mar 2018 By shakeel ahmad

Shakespeare writes, “The quality of mercy is not strained, as it blesseth as well the receiver and the giver.”  The Delhi High Court’s order to cancel disqualification of 20 MLAs of Aam Aadmi Party has brightened them. It remained a big relief to them ultimately. The legislators have been enthralled with the court’s fair dealing bringing their disqualification null and void. They in their petition said that they were removed without holding a full-fledged enquiry and without giving them an opportunity to explain if they ever held any office of profit.

Way back in March 2015 the AAP government had appointed parliamentary secretaries to 21 MLAs. Terming it as the office of profit, Prashant Patel, advocate, raised demand for cancellation of their membership through his complaint to the President of India. Because of the resignation of Jarnail Singh, MLA, the number came down to 20.

If a wrong has been done with the AAP members of Delhi Legislative Assembly, the state high court heard their actual case and quashed the notification. The party leaders are now feeling the poise following the court’s reasonable order. It was an occasion to restore their gone positions right now.

Excitement pulsed through their personality as they queried, “What mistake had they made?” The AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal called the HC order a victory of the people of Delhi. He also added that the truth had at long last prevailed. This was an opportunity they needed to bring change in the prevailing hard times all around.

The rivals’ malice was the topic of almost every political conversation all over the time. They criticised the prior notification as a violation of natural justice. It had taken a lot of convincing for them to cheer up. If the BJP was rejoicing at its increased strength in the Rajya Sabha, undoubtedly the AAP MLAs were desiring Naagin dance.
