'In the End, Truth Prevails': Arvind Kejriwal On Office Of Profit Crisis

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court refused to grant interim relief to 20 Aam Aadmi Party legislators, whose names were recommended by the Election Commission to the President for disqualification for allegedly holding offices of profit, on Friday.

In a massive blow to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Election Commission on Friday has recommended to the President to disqualify 20 legislators of Aam Aadmi Party for holding offices of profit as parliamentary secretaries.

The Election Commission's recommendation to disqualify the legislators may lead to the AAP's removal from the Delhi Assembly.

'The recommendation on the 20 legislators is subjudice,' the EC said and denied to comment on what the panel body conveyed to President Ram Nath Kovind.

The petition before the EC was filed by Prashant Patel against 21 MLAs who were appointed as parliamentary secretaries by the Arvinfd Kejriwal led AAP government in Delhi.

AAP's boss, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, did not say a word.

He broke this silence late in the evening with a tweet.

Mr Kejriwal pitched the AAP as victim, the wronged party.

"There are many obstacles when you tread a path with truth and honesty. This is natural. But all the powers, visible and invisible forces in the unaversive, held you. God is with you because you aren't working for yourself, but the country and society."

"History is witness to the fact that in the end, truth prevails," tweeted Mr Kejriwal who had left it to AAP leaders to raise questions on the EC's conclusions.
