On March 23, the High Court had set aside the Election Commission recommendation disqualifying 20 ruling party MLAs in an office-of-profit case and asked the EC to hear the case afresh because the MLAs were not given proper hearing before the poll panel decided on their disqualification.
The MLAs were disqualified for holding office-of-profit when they were appointed parliamentary secretaries.
The Commission on Monday was to hear final arguments in the office-of-profit case, but the MLAs moved the Delhi High Court.
On January 19, the EC recommended that 20 AAP MLAs be disqualified for holding offices of profit. Two days later, President Ram Nath Kovind approved it. Later, the MLAs moved the High Court claiming that the EC did not hear them properly.
In March, the Delhi High Court restored the membership of the party's 20 disqualified MLAs.
In May, the party MLAs had moved a plea for cross-examination of Patel and other officials of the Assembly to prove that they were not holding any office-of-profit by being appointed parliamentary secretaries.
