New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Raghav Chadha approached the Supreme Court against his “indefinite” suspension from Rajya Sabha.
In his plea before the apex court, Chadha raised the issue of his suspension extending beyond one session of the House.
He termed his suspension “arbitrary and illegal”.
Raghav Chadha was suspended from the Rajya Sabha in August for allegedly forging the signatures of five MPs, BJP’s S Phangnon Konyak, Narhari Amin and Sudhanshu Trivedi, AIADMK’s M Thambidurai and BJD’s Sasmit Patra, on a motion related to the Delhi Services Bill in the Rajya Sabha.
Meanwhile, AAP had accused the BJP of “making deliberate attempts to implicate” Chadha. The party further said that the allegations of ‘forged signatures’ against Raghav Chadha were “false and politically motivated”.
