High Court Hearings on the Appointment of Chief Parliamentary Secretaries

 Challenging the Appointment of Chief Parliamentary Secretaries in the High Court

 

The High Court has been holding continuous hearings for three days on the petitions challenging the appointment of Chief Parliamentary Secretaries (CPS) in the state. The hearings began on Monday, April 22nd, with arguments from the petitioners. On Tuesday and Wednesday, arguments from the CPS were heard, followed by responses from the petitioners. The next hearing is scheduled for May 8th, as the court has adjourned the case. The petitioners argue that the appointment of CPS is against the law and infringes on the fundamental rights of citizens. They claim that the CPS are performing the duties of ministers, which is unconstitutional. The CPS, on the other hand, argue that they only assist ministers in their duties and do not hold any ministerial portfolios. They maintain that their appointment is legal and does not violate any laws. The petitioners have questioned the government’s authority to create such posts, stating that the creation of CPS posts is beyond the scope of the Constitution. They argue that the government lacks the power to create new posts that encroach on the powers of the legislature. The petitioners have also raised concerns about the remuneration received by the CPS, stating that it is illegal and should be returned. The court has issued orders to maintain the status quo, prohibiting the CPS from performing any ministerial duties until the case is resolved. The BJP leader Satpal Satti and 12 other BJP MLAs have filed a petition challenging the appointment of five CPS, including Sanjay Awasthi from Arki, Sundar Singh from Kullu, Ram Kumar from Dhoun, Mohan Lal Brakta from Rohru, and Ashish Butela from Palampur. The court has clarified that the next hearing will be based on the arguments presented by the state government, which is expected to defend the legality of the CPS appointments.
