Chandigarh, The politics of the state has heated up after the Governor of Punjab gave the approval for the special session of the Vidhan Sabha to be held today. Aam Aadmi Party called a meeting of party MLAs since morning regarding this. After this the AAP MLAs marched towards the Raj Bhavan. The police stopped them on their way. During this, there was a confrontation between the police and AAP MLAs. The MLAs then sat on a dharna on the road there. On the other hand, the Bhagwant Mann government has now decided to reconvene the special session of the Punjab Legislative Assembly on September 27.
Bhagwant Mann said – Congress’s support in BJP’s Operation Lotus
Chief Minister Bhagwant said that the session is being called on 27th September. The cabinet has approved it. Mann alleged that Congress is supporting BJP in Operation Lotus. He also talked about going to the Supreme Court in the whole matter. Bhagwant Mann said that we will not be afraid of any kind of non-democratic activities. By convening a session of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, we will send a message to the whole country that democracy belongs to the people and not to any one person.
Bhagwant Mann said that the Punjab cabinet meeting was held. It was unanimously decided that the session of the Legislative Assembly would be called on 27 September. Issues like electricity, stubble will be discussed in this session. Bhagwant Mann said that the Governor canceled the special session of the Assembly after approving it. This is unfortunate. Against this we will go to the Supreme Court, so that the fight for the rights of the people can be fought.
Said- people grow up in a democracy
Bhagwant Mann said that people grow up in a democracy. The surprising thing in all the developments was that the Congress party in Punjab was seen standing with the BJP in Operation Lotus. Akali Dal, BJP and Congress appeared in its favor. Congress itself is suffering from Operation Lotus. In many states, their MLAs have broken up. It seems that internally both the parties are working together. Mann said that the Aam Aadmi Party is a party out of the movement. Our MLAs are not going to sell.
Clashes broke out between AAP MLAs and Chandigarh Police
Earlier, the meeting of AAP MLAs was held in Punjab Vidhan Sabha building. After the meeting, AAP MLAs marched towards the Raj Bhavan to protest the Governor’s decision. AAP MLAs have named it Shanti March. The legislators, who were taking out a peace march by putting up barricades, have been stopped before the Raj Bhavan. After being stopped by the Chandigarh Police, AAP MLAs have staged a dharna there. The MLAs have sat on the rugs.
AAP MLAs said that BJP will make every effort to stop us. MLA Gurdit Singh said that the Governor should work on the interests of Punjab. Nabha MLA Dev Mann said that the BJP’s mouth has got the blood of power.
Earlier sources had said that the Bhagwant Mann government of Punjab is preparing to convene a special session of the assembly next week. The decision in this regard was taken after the meeting of the AAP MLAs and the cabinet meeting and it was decided to convene a special meeting of the Punjab Legislative Assembly on September 27. No reason will be given for calling the session this time. Sources say that the government will not bring a confidence motion this time.
A meeting of the legislature party has been called on behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party against the cancellation of the session of the Legislative Assembly by the Governor. The MLAs had started arriving since morning to attend it. The meeting is being held in the Punjabi Regional Hall of the Vidhan Sabha.
