Rebel AAP leader Kapil Mishra moves Delhi HC against disqualification


New Delhi, Aug 06: Rebel AAP leader Kapil Mishra moved the Delhi High Court on Tuesday against his disqualification from the Legislative Assembly under the anti-defection law.

Delhi Assembly speaker Ram Niwas Goel had on Friday disqualified Mishra, an MLA from Karawal Nagar, saying his campaigning for the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha polls indicated that he has "given up the membership of his original political party".

According to an order issued by the speaker, Mishra''s disqualification takes effect from January 27 this year when he shared dias with Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and the then Union minister Vijay Goel against the Aam Aadmi Party.

The order was issued on a petition of AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj seeking Mishra''s disqualification from the Delhi Assembly.
