Amit Shah

Panaji, July 10: The Goa bench of the Bombay High Court today issued notices to top central and state officials over BJP party meeting to honour Chief Amit Shah inside the Dabolim International airport premises on July 1.

The court issued notices to the Secretary of Civil Aviation Ministry and the Goa Chief Secretary, among others, seeking to
submit a detail explanation within a span of three weeks.

The bench chaired by Justice F.M. Reis and Justice Nutan Sardessai came with this decision following a petition by a city
advocate, who had alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party meeting was held at the Goa airport, which is under the supervision
of an Indian Naval Base.

The petitioner had alleged that the party was illegal and conducted in contravention of laws.

“Notices have also been issued to Goa Director General of Police, Goa Airport Director and Deputy Commandant of Central
Industrial Security Force asking them about how the meeting was conducted at an airport,” petitioner Aires Rodrigues told media in Panaji on Monday.

The petition sought a thorough probe into the manner in which the meeting was allowed to be conducted at the airport which
functions out of an Indian Naval Base INS Hansa, the petitioner stated.

Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi, Jan 22 : Aam Aadmi Partys (AAP) disqualified MLAs on Monday withdrew from the Delhi High Court their plea seeking a stay on the Election Commission’s recommendation to the President to disqualify 20 MLAs in an office of profit case.

Justice Rekha Palli said the plea moved by six AAP legislators had become infructuous as the President has already issued a circular to disqualify all 20 MLAs.

The court’s decision came after it was informed by the EC that it had already sent its opinion to President Ram Nath Kovind on January 19, before the MLAs had moved the court.

EC also informed the court that the President issued the notification on January 20.

The court said: “What remains with the writ now, the final order has been passed by the President. The plea is dismissed as withdrawn.”

On Friday, the Election Commission recommended to the President for disqualification of the 20 AAP MLAs for holding office of profit as Parliamentary Secretaries.

Following the President’s approval, the Union Law and Justice Ministry had issued a notification saying that the President has held that the 20 members of the Delhi Legislative Assembly stand disqualified under 15 (1) (a) of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) Act.

These 20 MLAs are Alka Lamba, Adarsh Shastri, Sanjeev Jha, Rajesh Gupta, Kailash Gehlot, Vijendra Garg, Praveen Kumar, Sharad Kumar, Madan Lal Khufiya, Shiv Charan Goyal, Sarita Singh, Naresh Yadav, Rajesh Rishi, Anil Kumar, Som Dutt, Avtar Singh, Sukhvir Singh Dala, Manoj Kumar, Nitin Tyagi and Jarnail Singh.

The counsels appearing for the disqualified MLAs said they wanted to withdraw the plea and will examine the EC’s order.
