The Election Commission is likely to hold personal hearings on July 14 for 21 AAP MLAs appointed Parliamentary Secretaries. The AAP government has attracted criticism from the opposition over the appointments amid charges of the legislators holding two offices of profit.
The AAP MLAs, while maintaining they did not receive any “additional pecuniary benefit” for holding the post of Parliamentary Secretaries, had urged the EC to hold a personal hearing after they were served a notice by the poll body.
