AAP leader Manish Sisodia today said that the MLAs of his party, who were recommended by the Election Commission for disqualification, were never given a chance to put forward their side of the story and appealed to the President to hear his party's view as well. The deputy chief minister of Delhi was addressing the media a day after Election Commission recommended to President Ram Nath Kovind to disqualify 20 MLAs of his party.

Sisodia also alleged that his government is being deliberately targeted for the "honest work" they have been doing in the capital city. He said that the latest attempt by the EC is another move by the Centre to deter the Aam Aadmi Party from pursuing the path of honest politics. Later in the day, Jarnail Singh, the MLA from Delhi's Tilak Nagar constituency, who is also one of the 20 MLAs recommended for disqualification, challenged the Election Commission to prove if the MLAs received benefits for holding the posts of parliamentary secretary.

"I challenge the EC to prove that we got even 1 rupee as salary, or even a house or car. We are ready to go to any court and if there is no option we will go to the people's court," he said. On Friday, in a blow to Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party, the Election Commission had asked the President to disqualify 20 of its MLAs for holding offices of profit, setting the stage for their ouster from the Delhi assembly. Following the EC's recommendation, the MLAs moved the Delhi High Court on Friday evening but Justice Rekha Palli refused to pass any interim order.
