Meanwhile, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann-led Aam Aadmi government in Punjab has appointed Rajya Sabha member Raghav Chadha as chairman of the Advisory Committee of the state government on July 11.

However, a month after the appointment of Raghav Chadha as chairman of advisory committee, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday came down heavily on the Punjab Government on the appointment of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Raghav Chadha as the chairman of Punjab's interim ‘Advisory Committee’.


The Chief Justice of the High Court asked the Punjab Government that what was the need for it? "Why were the elections got conducted if such decisions are to be taken that the powers of the government should be given to one person?" asked the Chief Justice of the High Court.

The Punjab Government said the petitioners reached the court when the government had completed almost all formalities. After hearing the arguments of both parties, the High Court reprimanded the Punjab Government and said the government "has not spent even a single rupee".
