Law Student moves EC seeking disentitlement of 27 AAP MLAs

New Delhi: Coming down heavily on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Vibhor Anand, a final year law student on Friday demanded the disentitlement of the 27 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs over the office of profit issue after filing a fresh application with the Election Commission.

“These 27 MLAs have been appointed as the chairman of 38 hospitals, whereas the guidelines given by the Central Government in 2015 are highly categorical in nature. It states that only the district magistrate or the local MP or the health minister can be appointed as the chairman. Local MLAs can only become a member of the committee,” he told ANI.

Anand said if Sheila Dikshit’s government made some mistakes during their term in office the present government should not have repeated it.

“I only ask the government to debar their membership from the office,” he added.

Vinhor Anand has claimed in his complaint that 27 AAP MLAs hold posts of Chairpersons of the Rogi Kalyan Samitis (RKSs) of different government hospitals in Delhi without any sanctity of law.

The 27 MLAs include seven legislators against whom the Election Commission is already considering a similar plea.

The list also includes Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel, his deputy Rakhi Birla, former deputy speaker Bandana Kumari and estranged AAP MLA and Swaraj Abhiyan leader Pankaj Pushkar. (ANI)
