In Punjab, there is a tussle between the government and the governor over the convening of a special session of the Vidhan Sabha on September 27. Punjab Governor Banwari Lal Purohit has asked for information on convening the assembly session, what will happen in the proposed assembly session on September 27? That is, give information about legislative business. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has expressed displeasure over this. Earlier, the governor has canceled the assembly session to be held on September 22.
Angered by this attitude of the Punjab Governor, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann tweeted, ‘Governor’s permission is only a formality before the assembly session. In 75 years, no President or Governor has asked for a list of Legislative Business before convening the session. The Legislative Business is decided by the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) and the Speaker. After this, the governor will also ask to approve all the speeches. This is the limit.
Gov/Presi consent before any session of Legislature is a formality. In 75 years, no Presi/Gov ever asked list of Legislative business before calling session. Legislative business is decided by BAC and speaker. Next Gov will ask all speeches also to be approved by him.its too much

At the same time, AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha tweeted, “Whether it is inflation or the ‘luxurious life of Bollywood wives’ – legislative business is the exclusive domain of the Working Advisory Committee and the chairman, not the governor. The Governor of Punjab has the confidence of the people in his office. are completely lost.’
Whether it’s inflation or the ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ – legislative business is the exclusive domain of Business Advisory Committee & Speaker, not of Governor.
The Governor of Punjab is thoroughly eroding people’s faith in his office, one communication at a time. pic.twitter.com/YIdtPl6bTH
