Chandigarh: The Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) led Punjab Government has called special session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha on Monday. Congress party has termed the special session as ‘back-door’ entry of election sops.
Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh has urged the Election Commission to take immediate preventive steps to stop the Badal government from trying to push through its pending ordinances, which the governor has refused to sign, through the special Assembly session called by it in violation of all norms.
“Having failed to push its poll sops through the Raj Bhavan, the Badal government is now resorting to a ‘back-door’ special session of the state Assembly, which it has deliberately scheduled for December 19, since media reports indicate the EC might announce the poll dates and impose the code of conduct on December 20”, said Captain Amarinder.
Reacting to reports that the Badal government would try to pass eight Bills/Ordinances, including the one related to regularization of 27,000 contractual employees, who have been on warpath against the government for a long time, Captain Amarinder said it was clearly a clandestine bid by the Badals to bypass the electoral process.
