Minister’s election as badminton body chief stayed

Chandigarh, December 11

A day after Cabinet Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu's unopposed election as the Punjab Badminton Association president, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today stayed the election results.

The order by Justice GS Sandhawalia came on a petition filed by Tejinder Singh Walia and another person against the state of Punjab and other respondents. "This court is of the opinion that since elections have taken place when proceedings were pending before this court, the election result declared on December 10 is liable to be stayed," Justice Sandhawalia asserted, while fixing the case for further hearing on January 25, 2021. Four vice-presidents, along with other office-bearers, were also declared elected.

The petitioners had moved the High Court claiming that the election scheduled on February 27 could not be held. Further activity could not take place, thereafter, due to Covid-19. The meeting/elections were now to be held on December 27, as per the decision dated November 19. The impugned order thereafter was passed on October 30 without issuing notice to the petitioners. — TNS
