Against the backdrop of the disqualification of 21 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Parliamentary Secretaries in Delhi, the AAP Nagaland has written to the Governor of Nagaland seeking disqualification of 24 MLAs holding the post of Parliamentary Secretaries in the state.


The state AAP said that the 24 Parliamentary Secretaries were “enjoying a number of perks, such as facility of cars, bungalows, fat salaries, police escort and status as ministers which comes under the purview of office of profit as per Article 191 (1) of the Constitution of India.”


Pointing out that the Chief Election Commissioner has initiated to disqualify Delhi AAP MLAs on grounds of holding office of profit, according to the directives of the BJP-led central government, the state AAP said that the same case should be uniformly applied to Nagaland. The AAP said it would resort to legal recourse if the “high office” does not take appropriate action on its representation or if only the MLAs of Delhi were disqualified.
