Delhi HC to hear AAP's plea on MLAs disqualification

The Delhi High Court will on Wednesday hear a fresh plea filed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in regard to the disqualification of its 20 MLAs.

AAP on Tuesday approached the Delhi HC seeking to quash the disqualification of its 20 MLAs accused of holding the 'office of profit'.

On January 21, President Ram Nath Kovind approved the disqualification of those MLAs, accused of holding the 'office of profit', after the Election Commission of India (ECI) on January 19 had recommended for the same.

Earlier on January 22, they withdrew their plea from the Delhi High Court that they had filed on January 19 after ECI's recommendation.

The Delhi High Court, on that date, refused to pass any interim order of protection to those MLAs.
