The move comes after the poll panel reportedly sent its recommendation to the President of India to disqualify 20 AAP MLAs for holding the office of profits.

AAP MLA Madan Lal approached Delhi High Court in anticipation of the expected EC order.

Addressing the reporters, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj said that according to the principles of natural justice worldwide, the person against whom a case is registered must be heard before a conclusion is reached.

He alleged that the EC never heard the case fully and hastened to take the decision.

AAP had won 67 of the 70 Assembly seats in 2015 polls and continues to enjoy a majority even after the disqualification of the 20 MLAs.

Initially, the case was against 21 MLAs but it now stands at 20 after Rajouri Garden MLA Jarnail Singh resigned to contest against Parkash Singh Badal in the Punjab Assembly elections last year.
