The Delhi High Court today revoked the Arvind Kejriwal government’s order appointing 21 MLAs as parliamentary secretaries. The HC decision came after the Delhi government’s counsel “conceded” that the order was issued without taking concurrence or views of the Delhi Lieutenant Governor.

The HC order said that the 21 Parliamentary secretaries should immediately step down. The judgement not only came as a setback to the AAP government but also provided an opportunity to the Twitterati to mount an attack of AAP and Kejriwal. As soon as the HC decision came, 21 AAP MLA started trending on the micro-blogging site.

Here are what some of them said:

AAP had appointed 21 parliamentary secretaries to assist the Delhi government ministers. Thereafter, the state government sought an amendment to the Delhi Members of Legislative Assembly (Removal of Disqualification) Act, 1997. Through the Bill, which was forwarded to the Centre by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, AAP wanted “retrospective” exemption for the parliamentary secretaries from disqualification provisions. With the President refusing assent to the bill in June, the 21 ruling party MLAs were left with no legal backing for holding the post of parliamentary secretaries.
