New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) member Kuljit Chahal on Wednesday, 22 June, moved a resolution to declare the seat of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the civic body's council as "vacant," citing his absence from four consecutive meetings without permission.

The resolution was moved during the civic body's council meeting.

"As per the NDMC Act, if during three successive months, a member is absent from all meetings without prior permission, the council can recommend to Central government that the seat of such member be declared vacant," the resolution read.

Kejriwal is a member of the NDMC by virtue of being the New Delhi MLA.

The resolution cited absence of Kejriwal from council meetings from December 2021 to March 2022.

"The council may recommend to the central government that the seat of Arvind Kejriwal as Member of the council may be declared vacant with the recommendation to initiate further necessary action as per provisions contained in the NDMC Act, 1994," it added.

According to Chahal, the issue will be discussed in the next council meeting.
