Election Commission has never "touched this low": AAP

By Chennabasaveshwar

Aam Aadmi Party launched a scathing attack against Election Commission after the poll panel recommended disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs in the office of profit case against them.

AAP spokesperson Ashutosh tweeted, Election Commission has never "touched this low".

Election Commission has never

"The EC should not be the letterbox of the PMO. But that is the reality today," Ashutosh tweeted. "A person like me who has covered EC as a reporter during (T N) Seshan days, today I can say EC has never touched so low ever," he added.

Also, Saurabh Bhardwaj told media that, "There is no credible information. All reports are based on sources. I want to ask if people from constituencies of these 21 MLAs have seen them utilising government facilities like car, house or salary.No hearing has been held before EC until now."

If the president accepts the recommendation, Delhi will see a mini-assembly election with 20 seats up for grabs in the 70-member House. In the AAP cabinet reshuffle, Kapil Mishra rebelled against the party after he was sacked. AAP MLA from Rajouri Garden quit his post to contest the Punjab Assembly elections but the AAP failed to win the bypoll. After this, the number dropped from 67 MLAs to 63. After the disqualification of 20 MLAs, the AAP's strength will reduce to 42.
