CPS continues to skip meetings

Chandigarh, July 23

The mystery over functioning of the Chief Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Suresh Kumar continues, as he refrained from attending official meetings on Thursday.

Yesterday, he had met the Chief Minister as he was upset at the government for “not defending him” on priority in a Punjab and Haryana High Court case challenging his appointment.

Sources in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said Capt Amarinder is learnt to have assured the CPS that instructions were being passed to the Advocate General to pursue the case on priority. Kumar is learnt to have conveyed that he would attend office once the case was settled.

The official and security vehicles, returned by the CPS a few days ago, were sent back to him today by the CMO. Senior officials also continued to take his advice on official matters.

A close confidant of the CPS said his only grouse was that it had been 30 months since the matter came up in the HC, and it was still nowhere near being settled. Despite assurance to finish the case in four weeks, repeated adjournments were being sought in the case. Kumarb refused to sit in his office in the CMO and instead worked from Punjab Bhavan, after the case was adjourned in September last year.

The case is now listed for September 14.
