Rebel Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator Kapil Mishra on Monday moved a plea in the Delhi High Court seeking direction to state Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to join assembly sessions more frequently in view of his low attendance in the House.

In his plea, Mishra has sought that Kejriwal be directed to attend the sessions and to make a provision of 75 per cent attendance mandatory for all MLAs. "Direct the Lt. Governor to ascertain feasibility of 'no work, no pay' for the MLAs, if presence is less than 50 per cent in the assembly," the plea said. He requested the court to issue direction to the Lt. Governor and Speaker of the assembly to ensure the presence of Kejriwal in the House and replies to questions related to public interest.
