Notably, Manisha Gulati's lawyer was ordered by the High Court to submit their arguments in writing. 

Manisha Gulati filed a High Court petition challenging her removal as chairperson of the Punjab State Commission for Women. Among other things, it was claimed that the removal was totally illegal and erroneous. 

She was appointed chairperson of the women's panel by the previous Congress government in March 2018.

She was even given a one-year extension until September 2020. Manisha, on the other hand, joined the BJP in February 2022, just days before the 16th Punjab Assembly elections.
