The Top Court on Wednesday agreed to entertain the plea filed by former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Devender Sehrawat, seeking an urgent hearing against the disqualification notice served to him by Delhi Assembly Speaker Ramniwas Goel.

The plea filed by the MLA will be taken up by the vacation bench of the Top Court comprising justices Sanjeev Khanna and BR Garavai. A Disqualification notice has been served to the former legislator under the anti-defection Law.

The Delhi ruling Aam Aadmi Party had last week moved to the Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel, seeking disqualification of its two MLAs who joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in a run-up to the national elections, party Spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj told media.

The two Lawmakers – Anil Bajpai from Gandhi Nagar and Devinder Sehrawat from Bijwasan – had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on May 3 and May 6 respectively. Speaking to media.

On AAP’s request, Delhi Assembly Speaker issued a notice to both the Lawmakers who shifted to BJP. Goel said, ‘A notice has been issued to both the MLAs under the anti-defection Law and both have to respond on that by June 24’.

AAP Spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj had earlier said that the party has moved a petition against the rebel MLAs in a bid to disqualify them from the Delhi assembly.

Sehrawat had earlier claimed that he has not taken the BJP’s membership. ‘Even on the BJP dais, I had said that I have not taken the party membership. There is a due process before seeking my disqualification’, said Anil Bajpai as quoted by NDTV.

The quick turn of events comes months before the Delhi assembly polls which are slated for February next year.
