Amritsar: A special session of the Punjab Assembly began today following the ongoing tussle between the Governor and the Chief Minister. Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann moved the trust vote in the House. In the special session of the Assembly, state Leader of Opposition Partap Singh Bajwa opposed the trust vote, saying bringing a confidence motion was a challenge to the powers of the Governor.
Bajwa said in the state assembly that I condemn this on the floor of the house. Congress, Akali Dal legislators strongly opposed the motion of confidence moved by the Treasury Bench. Taking a jibe at the ongoing political crisis in Rajasthan Congress, CM Mann said that now they will teach us about laws. First, they should organize their home. After this, the proceedings of the assembly have been adjourned till September 29. Voting on the trust vote will be held on October 3.
