Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel has disqualified AAP MLA Sandeep Kumar on grounds of defection and supporting the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
Former Delhi’s Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar was sacked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after receiving an ‘objectionable’ CD in which he was purportedly shown in a compromising position with a woman.
Earlier this month, Goel had disqualified Karawal Nagar MLA Kapil Mishra under the anti-defection law after he campaigned for the BJP during the Lok Sabha election. Mishra has challenged his disqualification in the high court. Pandey, who headed the AAP’s women’s wing and was a spokesperson, said the AAP born out of search of “alternative politics”.
