The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) termed the legislation passed by Haryana assembly as “illegal” and “unconstitutional”.
The GoI ministry also shot off letters to Haryana Government and state governor to “undo” the HSGPC move. The MHA also took advise of Attorney general of India on this matter.
In it’s letter the MHA claimed that the state legislation was not eligible to pass such a law and only Indian parliament was authorise to enact such laws. But on the other hand Haryana state government maintains that it is on strong legal footings in this matter and now there is no going back on this issue.
