Punjab Governor Banwarlilal Purohit has given his approval to the Bhagwant Man led government to convene the one day state Assembly session on Tuesday, September 27. His approval comes after a week-long confrontation over the summoning of a Vidhan Sabha session on September 22,2022.
The row between the Raj Bhavan and the AAP government had begun after the Governor withdrew an order summoning a special sitting of the Vidhan Sabha called by Mann to table a confidence motion on September 22.
Earlier, Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit had sought details of the business the government wanted to take up in the one day special session Vidhan Sabha drawing a sharp reaction from Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and his cabinet colleagues who said it was “too much”.
The Governor had written a letter to CM Bhagwant Mann saying, “After reading your statements in today’s newspapers, it appears to me that perhaps you are very angry with me. I think your legal advisors are not briefing you adequately. Perhaps your opinion about me will definitely change after reading the provisions of Articles 167 and 168 of the Constitution, which I’m quoting for your ready reference.”
