AAP cries foul over office of profit case

Crying foul over the Election Commission of India (ECI) recommending the disqualification of its 20 MLAs from the Delhi Assembly, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has said that the due course has not been adopted in the matter.

Talking to ANI, the party's MLA, Saurabh Bhardwaj, said, "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."

In a big setback to the AAP, the ECI on Friday recommended to the President that 20 of its MLAs be disqualified for holding 'office of profit'.
