Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said that  the Delhi High Court order to set aside the Centre's notification disqualifying 20 AAP MLAs in an office of profit case is a ‘victory of truth’.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia too welcomed the order as he joined the AAP legislators in thumping tables in the Delhi Assembly during its ongoing Budget session. The MLAs shouted "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" in the Assembly after the order.

"It is a victory of truth. The elected representatives were wrongfully disqualified. The high court has given justice to the people of Delhi. It is their victory. Congratulations to the people of Delhi," Kejriwal tweeted.
