Twenty Members of Legislative Assembly of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today moved the Delhi High Court again against their disqualification for holding an office of profit by the Election Commission of India with the assent of the President.

In a huge setback to the Arvind Kejriwal-led party, the Election Commission's recommendation for their disqualification was approved by President Ram Nath Kovind on January 21.

The Election Commission had recommended their disqualification for holding the post of parliamentary secretaries between March 2015 and September 2016, considered as holding an office of profit.
