Mo­hali gets a stay on cor­po­ra­tion sta­tus

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - EDUCATION -

Un­for­tu­nately the town could not be con­verted into a mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion this year.

The Pun­jab and Haryana high court stayed the no­ti­fi­ca­tion up­grad­ing Mo­hali mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil to a cor­po­ra­tion on a pe­ti­tion filed by former coun­cil­lors Man­jit Singh Sethi and Man­mo­han Singh Lang. The pe­ti­tion­ers had sought the quash­ing of the no­ti­fi­ca­tions is­sued by the state govern­ment on Jan­uary 7 and 10. The two

had al­leged that the state govern­ment had turned the town into a cor­po­ra­tion un­der po­lit­i­cal pres­sure and in view of the Assem­bly elec­tions.

The pe­ti­tion said the govern­ment had dis­solved the mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil with­out fol­low­ing any spec­i­fied cri­te­ria.
