Chandigarh: The Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit on Wednesday withdrew the order of summoning a special session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha by the Aam Aadmi Party government for ‘Trust Vote’ on September 22.
In his order issued on Wednesday late evening, the Governor said his previous September 20 order stands withdrawn in absence of specific rules for summoning of the special assembly for considering the ‘confidence motion’ only called by the Punjab government.
Following this opportunity parties have attacked the ruling state government and welcomed the governor’s decision.
Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring today hailed the Punjab Governor Banwari Lal Purohit for preventing the Aam Aadmi Party government from sabotaging the constitutional, democratic and legislative practices and procedures.
Welcoming the Governor’s decision to withdraw his orders of summoning the Vidhan Sabha on September 22 for a special session, Warring said, “this (AAP) government has made a joke of governance and the constitutional and legislative procedures and the Governor has done well to correct it”.
Shiromani Akali Dal said that decision of the Punjab Governor Banwari Lal Purohit to withdraw consent for Special Session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha called by Bhagwant Mann Government has saved wastage of public money which Bhagwant Mann and AAP Convener Arvind Kejriwal wanted to waste just for a political gimmick.
Senior SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia said that though decision of the Governor has saved public exchequer but a detailed inquiry is need to expose real culprits of conspiracy which the AAP had been claiming.
He said that as per claims of AAP its MLAs were approached by BJP and this happened in Chandigarh. He said that thus jurisdiction of the crime becomes Chandigarh and as Administrator of Chandigarh, Governor should issue requisite orders for detailed inquiry.
