AAP delegation to meet President Mukherjee over illegal appointment of Parliamentary Secretaries

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

An (AAP) delegation led by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will meet President today to discuss the issue of illegal appointment of Parliamentary Secretaries in various states.

Besides Sisodia, other AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh, Gopal Rai and Kapil will also be present during the meeting at 6:15 p.m.

Last year, President had rejected the government's bill to exclude the post of Parliamentary Secretary from the 'Office of Profit' definition.

Meanwhile, the Commission of (ECI) has given 21 AAP legislators time till October 17 to explain why they should not be disqualified from the assembly after their appointment as Parliamentary Secretaries.

After coming to power in February 2015, Chief Minister Kejriwal's government appointed 21 party lawmakers as the Parliamentary Secretaries, stating that it would facilitate smooth functioning of the government and ensured that it would not be a burden on the exchequer.

However, the High Court in September quashed the appointment of 21 Parliamentary Secretaries.
