Chandigarh, October 13

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today fixed October 27 as the next date of hearing on a petition questioning the continuation of CM Manohar Lal Khattar after allegedly violating the solemn oath to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law, following the “dangerous speech”.

The case came up for preliminary hearing before Justice MS Ramachandra Rao this morning, but was adjourned. So far, the notice of motion has not been issued on the plea. Chander Shekher and six other petitioners through counsel APS Shergill also sought directions to ban the video so that it didn’t become a “weapon in the hands of anti-national forces for creating political and social unrest and large-scale violence. — TNS
