Chandigarh: Governor Punjab Banwari Lal Purohit has refused to approve the convening of the budget session of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha as requested by the Bhagwant Mann cabinet.
The Governor has said that he will take a legal opinion on the reply of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to his letter dated February 13, 2023, before taking any decision on this request. The reply by CM had been also sent through tweets and written letters.
The two-page letter sent by the Governor to the Chief Minister on Thursday reads, ” Since your tweet and letter both are not only patently unconstitutional but extremely derogatory also, therefore, I am compelled to take legal advice on this issue. Only after getting legal advice. I will take a decision on your request.”
