New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders led by the Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia will meet President Pranab Mukherjee on Friday evening on the issue of illegal appointment of Parliamentary Secretaries in various states.
Sisodia along with Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh, Gopal Rai and Kapil Mishra will meet President at Rashtrapati Bhavan at around 6.15 pm.
Pranab Mukherjee had last year rejected AAP govt’s bill to exclude the post of Parliamentary Secretaries from the ‘Office of Profit’ definition.
However, the Election Commission of India had given the 21 Delhi AAP legislators time till October 17 to explain why they should not be disqualified from the assembly after their appointment as Parliamentary Secretaries.
After coming to power, the AAP govt had appointed 21 lawmakers as the Parliamentary Secretaries.
