Just two days after suspending Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan from the party’s primary membership for his alleged anti-Kumar Vishwas statement, reports have surfaced that the party has been appointed the chairman of a panel of the Delhi Assembly.
Following the development, Khan’s supporters have started celebrating the development on the social media posting photos too.
Also Khan has been appointed a member in seven newly constituted committees, including the Special Inquiry Committee, of the House by the Speaker, reported the PTI.
The party said the appointment of members to these committees was the “prerogative” of the Speaker.
Just hours after suspending Khan, Sisodia had visited Okhla to meet him at his residence.
It is, however, not considered as prestigious with the panel having little work to do.
Sources close to Vishwas declined to react to this development, but indicated that the leader, who was pacified just two days ago, is unhappy over the development, reported PTI.
“With this development the leadership has sought to send a message that it backs Amanatullah and has given him a promotion. Whoever gave statements in favour of Vishwas have been cut to size,” an MLA who had backed Vishwas said.
