New Delhi: After the fiasco which was the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) bill being rejected and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal censuring the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for perpetually targeting AAP, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra on Tuesday said that Kejriwal had disrespected the constitution.
Citing that the plight of the 21 MLAs were out of the ruling BJP’s hands, thereby denying their involvement in the rejection of the bill, Patra said that the President and the Election Commission made those decisions.
“CM’s attack on the president and politicising his decision is unfortunate,” said Patra, who reiterated that Kejriwal had been disrespectful to constitutional positions.
Suggesting that the AAP should have taken things into hand from a legal perspective instead of political one, Patra said that for the AAP, laws should be made first and then positions given.
AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal has been at constant loggerheads with the ruling BJP government for targeting AAP and for de-facilitating the working procession of the AAP government.
The AAP’s bill was aimed at exclusion of the post of Parliamentary Secretary from the office of profit.
Petitions had been filed with the President seeking disqualification of these MLAs on the ground that they occupied office of profit in violation of the Constitution.
