In the Office of profit case, 20 MLAs from Aam Aadmi Party have received big relief on Friday from the Delhi High Court. The High Court has cancelled the dismissal of 20 AAP MLAs. The High Court has said that the petition of the legislators will be heard again.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has expressed happiness on this decision of the court. Kejriwal tweeted that Justice has done and truth has won. He said that the representatives elected by the people of Delhi were falsely dismissed. Delhi High Court gives justice to people. He said that this is a big win for the people of Delhi. Congratulations to the people of Delhi.

A bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Chander Shekhar had announced the judgement after the legislators, Election Commission of India (EC) and other parties had concluded their arguments.

The Election Commission had recommended President Kovind to disqualify these 20 MLAs.  On January 21, President Ram Nath Kovind has approved the recommendation of the Chief Election Commission, to disqualify the 20 AAP MLAs, who were appointed as parliamentary secretaries by the Arvind Kejriwal-led government, after the Election Commission of India on January 19 had recommended for the same.
