Punjab Guv vs chief minister: Bhagwant Mann thanks SC for ‘historic’ decision

New Delhi:

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday thanked the Supreme Court for its “historic” decision and “saving the existence of democracy”, saying the upcoming state assembly session will now go on without any obstruction.

His remarks come a day after Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit told the Supreme Court that he has summoned the Assembly for the budget session on March 3.

The Punjab government had moved the apex court after it accused the governor of not “reverting” to the cabinet’s decision of summoning the budget session of the Vidhan Sabha.
