No relief from Delhi High Court to 20 AAP MLAs in Office of Profit case

Published

EC has sent its recommendation to the President for his assent to disqualify 20 Aam Aadmi party MLAs for holding ‘office of profit’. According to news agency ANI, the Election Commission said,” Recommendation on AAP MLAs is sub judice, will not comment on what recommendation has been given to the President.”

Delhi High Court refuses to grant interim relief to Aam Aadmi Party MLAs in Office of Profit case.

Earlier Aam Aadmi Party approached Delhi High Court against Election Commission’s recommendation to disqualify their 20 MLAs in Office of Profit case.

Meanwhile, one of the alleged disqualified AAP MLA Rajesh Gupta told ANI,”We demanded a copy of the letter but we have got nothing from the Election Commission. There has been no hearing. The matter is sub judice on the high court.”

After this news breaks out in the media Saurabh Bhardwaj of AAP said, “The reporting of EC disqualifying 20 AAP MLAs for holding ‘office of profit’ is only through the sources. MLAs have not got a chance to keep their point. People should be asked if they have seen them with cars or bungalows.”

The disqualification of the legislators is expected to pave the way for by-elections in Delhi.

The controversy surrounding AAP MLAs started just after AAP’s victory in assembly election when a petition filed by Delhi lawyer Prashant Patel sought the disqualification of 20 MLAs for allegedly holding an ‘office of profit’ as parliamentary secretaries.

In August 2017, the Delhi High Court had refused the MLAs’ plea to stay the EC’s order upholding maintainability of the petition despite their appointment as parliamentary secretaries having been quashed in 2016.

 The name of 20 AAP MLAs the Election Commission has found guilty of ‘office of profit’ are as following

1. Adarsh Shastri from Dwarka constituency
2. Alka Lamba from Chandni Chowk constituency
3. Sanjeev Jha from Burari constituency
4. Kailash Gehlot from Najafgarh constituency
5. Vijendra Garg from Rajinder Nagar constituency
6. Praveen Kumar from Jangpura constituency
7. Sharad Kumar Chauhan from Narela constituency
8. Madan Lal Khufiya from Kasturba Nagar constituency
9. Shiv Charan Goyal from Moti Nagar constituency
10. Sarita Singh from Rohtas Nagar constituency
11. Naresh Yadav from Mehrauli constituency
12. Rajesh Gupta from Wazirpur constituency
13. Rajesh Rishi from Janakpuri constituency
14. Anil Kumar Bajpai from Gandhi Nagar constituency
15. Som Dutt from Sadar Bazar constituency
16. Avtar Singh from Kalkaji constituency
17. Sukhvir Singh Dala from Mundka constituency
18. Manoj Kumar from Kondli constituency
19. Nitin Tyagi from Laxmi Nagar constituency
20. Jarnail Singh from Tilak Nagar constituency

“Mirzapur 2” is a violent tale of feuds in families, politics and elections.

If GST has failed, revert to the old tax system: Uddhav Thackeray

“Don’t destabilise the non-BJP governments. If these things continue, it will lead to an anarchic situation in the country,” Thackeray warned.

Uddhav Thackeray

Mumbai : In a significant statement, Shiv Sena President and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said that if the system of GST has failed, then the Centre should honestly admit it and revert to the old system of taxation in the country.

Addressing the party’s annual Dassehra Rally online with only 50 people present in an auditorium near Shivaji Park, Thackeray said that Maharashtra has not been refunded its Goods & Service Tax (GST) dues of Rs.38,000 crore which has created huge financial crises for the state in the Corona pandemic times.

“From all this, it appears that the GST system is proving a hoaxa It is time to review the present form of GST as the states are not beneittinga If it is not working, the Prime Minister should honestly admit it and bring back the old system of taxation,” Thackeray said.

Referring to similar problems faced by other states, Thackeray said the country is not of one party and urged Chief Ministers of states to join together, meet the PM to discuss and sort out the issues.

At the same time he lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party for promising to distribute free Corona vaccines to the people of Bihar if itsAalliance is voted back to power in its poll manifesto.

“On one hand you don’t give us our legitimate GST dues and on the other, you promise free vaccines to people Bihara Where will the money come from? So what about other people of Indiaa Why this blatant discrimination? Is the rest of the country a Pakistan,” Thackeray said.

In another veiled punch on Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari without taking any names, Thackeray questioned the credentials of those who sought to enquire about his ‘Hindutva’, referring to the recent letter-war.

“Our ‘Hindutva’ is far older and different from your ‘Hindutva’. The late Balasaheb Thackeray spoke about it when others were even scared to utter the word. I have pounced once, if needed will pounc again,” Thackeray warned.

Taking a swipe at the state Opposition BJP leaders and those wearing ‘black caps’, Thackeray advised them to listen carefully to RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat’s Dassehra Rally speech.

“Our ‘Hindutva’ is not limited to deities, temples or pujas or ringing bells or banging thaalis. Our ‘Hindutva’ itself is our Nationalism. You enacted a cow protection law in Maharashtra, why not in Goa,” he asked.

“Shiv Sena had demanded to make Mohan Bhagwat the President, but they have joined hands with Nitish Kumar’s party in Bihar which wanted no truck with anybody connected with RSS. Don’t play political games of ‘iski topi, uske sar’ in the name of ‘Hindutva’,” Thackeray said.

Training guns on the BJP and Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavist for their hurry in toppling the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress Maha Vikas Aghadi government, Thackeray took another jibe, saying despite many “Tarikh pe Tarikh, my government has survived and is stable”.

“From day one when I took over as CM, some people are dreaming of throwing me out. I repeat what I said then – This is an open challenge. If you have the guts, then try to dislodge my government,” Thackeray said.

The CM expressed concern over the “strange goings-on” in the country which is in the grip of the Corona pandemic, the economic crises and other serious issues, saying, “but the BJP is only interested in playing temple politics in lockdown and busy felling state governments during the pandemic”.

“Don’t destabilise the non-BJP governments. If these things continue, it will lead to an anarchic situation in the country,” Thackeray warned.

Without naming actress Kangana Ranaut, the CM said, “Those who don’t even proper food in their state come here, make money and then become ‘namak-haram’ (traitors) by comparing Mumbai with Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and defaming the state, its leaders and the police department.”

“Temples will be opened at the right time. I also have full faith in the Mumbai Police, they are among the best in the world. Anybody attempting to separate Mumbai from Maharashtra would be reduced to dust. Had you (BJP) had spared so much time for the people of the country as you do for your party activities, it would be better for all,” Thackeray declared.

The Covid-compliant mini-Dassehra Rally was held in the Swatantraveer Savarkar auditorium – an unprecedented development since the inaugural rally in 1966 – and the first by Thackeray as the CM, with the presence of top Sena leaders, ministers and elected representatives, while it was telecast and webcast live to the audiences across the state.

New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday targeted the Congress through Jamat-e-Islami. It alleged that the organisation created a welfare party to “help” Congress.

“For the convenience of the Congress, Jamaat-e-Islami has formed a political party, probably named it Welfare Party,” alleged Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.

He further alleged that the activities of Jamaat-e-Islami includes bloodshed, terror and acts against humanity.

“But when Modi ji’s government came, it was banned because of his activities in Kashmir,” he said.

Organisations such as this are promoting terrorism and known for their “jihadi mentality”, claimed Naqvi in a media briefing.

“Its relationship with Congress is reflective of the changed mentality of Congress,” Naqvi charged.

He further hit out at Rahul Gandhi, calling him ‘yuvaraj’, saying: “When the PFI people were caught in Uttar Pradesh and elsewhere, the Yuvraj of Congress reached out to console them.”

Naqvi further said that the alliance of the Congress with such organisations will have to be explained by the Congress.
