‘SACK AG NANDA FOR WILFUL BETRAYAL OF STATE’S INTEREST’
CHANDIGARH: Former Punjab deputy speaker Bir Devinder Singh, on Saturday, targeted Punjab advocate general Atul Nanda saying his office had failed to defend two important decisions of the state in the high court.
He added, “The state knew that the SAD had challenged the order of Faridkot district administration and the case was to come up for hearing. The AG chose to be in oblivion and the state lost the case. Chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh must sack Nanda immediately. If the whole drama was enacted in collusion with the Badal family and the AG had instructions from the CM not to appear in both the cases, then it is unpardonable deceit.” Referring to the second case, he said, “Nanda’s deceitful absence from the court on the false pretext that AG office did not get the notice for the hearing in the case filed by ex-Moga SSP Charnjit Sharma on Thursday, is indefensible. He should have pre-empted legal recourse likely to be taken by persons indicted in the Ranjit panel report,” he said.
