AAP leader and Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Saturday lashed out at Centre and Congress saying that no MLAs were holding any office of profit. 

Sisodia described the Election Commission's recommendation to disqualify 20 AAP lawmakers "unconstitutional".


“There was no hearing, we were not given a chance to explain our stand. We appeal to the President to hear our view too, MLAs will meet President also,” Manish Sisodia, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister said. 

Delhi Deputy CM 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 view 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.
