Vishwas said that this is why he remained quiet but at the same time called Election Commission's decision to disqualify 20 AAP MLAs, an unfortunate and sad one.

"It's very unfortunate and sad the action against 20 AAP MLAs, I had given certain suggestions earlier but I was told its the CM's prerogative to appoint people so I kept quiet," Vishvas said who was recently ignored for a Rajya Sabha seat by the party.

All this has come at a time when rift inside the party became apparent due to Kapil Mishra's exit and denial of Rajya Sabha ticket to Kumar Vishwas. Some TV news channels are already predicting snap polls in Delhi.

The Election Commission on Friday recommended to the President the disqualification of 20 of its MLAs for holding office of profit, setting the stage for their ouster from the Assembly

In its opinion sent to President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday morning, the Election Commission said the MLAs, by occupying the post of parliamentary secretaries between March 13, 2015, and September 8, 2016, held office of profit, and were liable to be disqualified as legislators, highly-placed sources said
