‘SACK AG NANDA FOR WIL­FUL BE­TRAYAL OF STATE’S IN­TER­EST’

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Punjab -

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.
