Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has lost the right to be in power, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken today said in the wake of the Election Commission’s (EC) recommendation for disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs. “Kejriwal has no right to continue. Half of his cabinet ministers removed on corruption charges! 20 MLAs who were enjoying ministerial perks would be disqualified! (sic),” the Congress leader tweeted. “Where is Lokpal? The MLAs and Ministers enjoying perks of power and foreign travel-Where is political probity (sic)?,” the tweet further read.
