Amid row with Governor, Punjab govt to hold regular Assembly session on Sept 27 – The Indian Express

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Thursday said that the Cabinet has decided to hold regular session of the Legislative Assembly on September 27. The decision comes a day after Governor Banwarilal Purohit withdrew his order summoning a special Assembly session today, which was called by the Bhagwant Mann-led Aam Aadmi Party government to move a confidence motion.
On Thursday, Mann convened an emergency meeting of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs and later, the Cabinet.

The Cabinet also decided that the AAP-led Punjab government will go to the Supreme Court against the Governor’s orders.
In a statement following the Cabinet meeting, Mann said, “The Congress has exposed for having a quid pro quo with the BJP. They have welcomed the Governor’s orders.” He added, “we will not be cowed down.”
“The regular session will be convened next week. There will be a regular Question Hour, Zero Hour and legislative business will be transacted. In the session, we will also table the confidence motion,” said a source privy to discussions in the government.
