New Delhi, Aug 8 (IANS) Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on Thursday disqualified two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs – Anil Kumar Bajpai and Col. Devinder Sehrawat – from the House on grounds of defection.
The Speaker took the decision on a petition received from AAP spokesperson and MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj, a statement from the Assembly read.
The disqualification of Bajpai takes effect from May 3 and of Sehrawat from May 6 — the dates they joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and informed the media.
“Consequently, the Gandhi Nagar and Bijwasan seats have fallen vacant,” a statement from the Assembly read.
Goel on August 2 had disqualified rebel AAP MLA Kapil Mishra on the grounds of defection for his association with the BJP.
