The MLAs, who were appointed parliamentary secretaries, had challenged their disqualification for holding office-of-profit. Two days later, President Ram Nath Kovind approved it.
Buoyed by the Delhi High Court verdict restoring the membership of its 20 legislators, the Aam Aadmi Party on Friday said it has won the "perception battle" in the office-of-profit case and now will take the matter to the people.
The Delhi HC also added that the Election Commission must hold the proceedings and consider each case by merit.

"...Opinion of the ECI dated 19 January, 2018 is vitiated and bad in law for failure to comply with the principles of natural justice..."
Taking a pot shot at the AAP convenor, Bagga invited entries from the general public, asking them to send the proof if their biggest lie on WhatsApp number 9115929292 mentioning their name and location.
"The BJP is aware their government is doubly disqualified - first, for having illegally allotted offices of profit to 12 MLAs and second for not having disqualified the defecting MLA who has done so in gross violation of the Tenth Schedule of the Constitution and Supreme Court's decision in Kihoto Holohan v. Zachillu". It said the post of Parliamentary Secretaries to ministers was an office that was "never created by any law or order" of the Delhi government and its roles and responsibilities were "never spelt out in any manner". The MLAs then approached the Delhi high court challenging their disqualification.
The appointment, however, was set aside by the Delhi High Court on September 8, 2016, on the basis that they were appointed without prior concurrence with the Delhi Lieutenant Governor. However as a proponent of jurisprudence, it is assumed that in complex issues such as disqualification of democratically elected representatives, the ECI would follow a just and fair procedure of investigation and the accused would be given ample opportunity to present their contention - something it failed to do. "This is a victory for the people of Delhi, and we give them our good wishes". The EC will hear their plea again. "We respect today's judgement of the high court, but we would like to raise some important questions", Congress spokesperson Sushmita Dev told reporters. The court order is also being viewed in the political circles as a major victory for AAP.
