Expressing his disappointment over Election Commission’s recommendation to disqualify 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs in ‘office of profit’ case, party convener Arvind Kejriwal said that at the end truth ‘triumphs’.
“When you walk on the path of truth and honesty, then there are many obstacles. It is natural to be like this but visible and invisible forces of the Universe help you. God is always with you because you work for the country and society and not for yourself. History is a witness that at the end truth always triumphs,” the Delhi Chief Minister said in a tweet in his first reaction on the matter.
The Election Commission on Friday recommended to President Ram Nath Kovind disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs in the ‘office of profit’ case .
In August 2017, the MLAs appealed to the Delhi High Court asking it to not allow the EC taking up the Delhi lawyer’s petition. They argued that their appointments to the post of parliamentary secretary were already quashed in 2016.
