'Satyendar Jain has lost memory, his MLAship should be voided..,' PIL filed in HC

New Delhi: A PIL has been filed in the Delhi High Court seeking disqualification of Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain from the Delhi Assembly in a money laundering case. The petition seeks disqualification of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Jain. The petition said that the Cabinet Minister of Arvind Kejriwal government and MLA from Shakur Basti has himself said before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) that he has lost his memory and has also told the same thing to the trial court through the Additional Solicitor General.

The PIL states that the Delhi government is clearly violating the provisions of Article 191(1)(b) in the Constitution, which directly states that any person who is of a perverted mind and has been declared so by the competent court should be disqualified as an election and a member of the Assembly or Legislative Council. Petitioner Ashish Kumar Srivastava, through advocate Rudra Vikram Singh, has sought a direction from the Delhi government to declare null and void all the decisions taken by Jain after he tested positive for covid-19 and then lost his memory.

The petitioner has also sought direction from the court to the Central government to constitute a medical board to examine the mental condition of Satyendar Jain. The plea said That Satyendar Jain is holding many important portfolios in the Delhi government and he has to take many decisions every day, and stamp papers, and orders, but, since he himself has said that he has lost memory, someone else can take undue advantage of his illness and eventually the people of Delhi will only suffer.
