Delimitation: Govt to withdraw notifications

Share This

Chandigarh, November 18

The state government today undertook before the Punjab and Haryana High Court that it would withdraw notifications whereby the state “changed the serial numbering of wards” of Bhawanigarh Municipal Council in Sangrur district.

The petitioner, Honey Kansal, through counsel Puneet Gupta, had contended that the state illegally changed the serial numbering in contravention of the provisions of the Delimitation of Wards of Municipalities Rules, 1972. Appearing on his behalf, Gupta contended that the move was also in contravention of well-settled law laid by a Division Bench of the High Court in the case of ‘Rakesh Sharma vs State of Punjab and others’. The process was carried out without inviting objections from the affected persons of the wards. As such, it was also in violation of the principles of natural justice.

The Bench disposed of the writ petition in view of the statement made by Puneet Goel, Director, Local Government, that it would withdraw the notifications and issue fresh ones. — TNS
