In Punjab, Round 2 of AAP vs. Governor Over Trust Vote is Brewing

Today marked a new development in the conflict between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Governor in Punjab over a potential trust vote. Governor Banwarilal Purohit has requested the plan for a second extraordinary assembly session recommended by the government. A list of the legislative business is typically submitted when obtaining the Governor’s permission to hold an assembly session. However, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann stated on Twitter that no President or Governor has ever requested a list of legislative business before summoning a session in the previous 75 years. “The next Governor will need his approval of all remarks as well. It is excessive, “He wrote in a tweet.

The administration has stated that topics related to stubble burning and the electricity sector would be covered during the scheduled session on September 27 that was approved by the cabinet yesterday.

State Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema declined to elaborate when reporters enquired if a motion of confidence in the administration would be discussed during the special session.

He told reporters, “We will put everything in the business advisory group, which has a meeting before the session starts, and then we will see.

Mr. Purohit had rejected a special session set on September 22 earlier this week. In light of the BJP’s claimed intentions to carry out “Operation Lotus,” the government intended to ask for a vote of confidence during the session and demonstrate its majority.

The Governor, who had initially been called for the assembly, later rescinded his call, claiming that he had sought legal advice.

According to the AAP government, the Attorney General is a paid representative of the BJP-led Central Administration, who has refuted the claim. The party has argued that there are clear regulations and precedents in this regard, not just in Punjab but also in other states.

In an exclusive interview with NDTV, prominent AAP leader Raghav Chadha said, “Today the Governor of the state of Punjab has been party to Operation Lotus that has been devised and implemented by the BJP.”

“His decision to revoke the summons he had issued was wrong and unconstitutional in every way. Why did the Governor first offer his approval if there is no mechanism for us to make a motion of confidence? The Council of Ministers’ assistance and counsel are obligated to the Governor, “added Mr. Chadha, who was a key figure in helping AAP win big in Punjab earlier this year.

The party claims that the BJP sought to sway several AAP MLAs by making them each individual offers of 25 crores. The party has also said that it has provided the police with audio-video proof of these talks.
