Chandigarh, November 17
The Vidhan Sabha Speaker today tendered an “unconditional apology for any inadvertent or unintentional lapse” to the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The apology came less than 10 days after the High Court took serious note of defiance of orders directing the maintenance of status quo in an under-secretary’s service matter.
The Speaker has also requested the High Court to “expunge” adverse observations made against him.
The High Court had minced no words to say a deliberate attempt to defy the orders was obvious. The Bench had also warned of initiating contempt proceedings in the matter.
The observations came on a petition filed by Ramesh Chand against the Vidhan Sabha and three other respondents.
