Chandigarh, September 22

The AAP government in Punjab has decided to call the state assembly session again on September 27 and and will also approach the Supreme Court over the Raj Bhavan move.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Dr Inderbir Singh Nijjar had earlier told The Tribune that the session will now be held on September 27.

In an embarrassment to the AAP government in Punjab, Governor Banwarilal Purohit had on Wednesday thwarted the Bhagwant Mann-led regime's plan to summon a special assembly session to bring a confidence motion.

The Governor withdrew an earlier order calling the special session on Thursday, saying it had sought legal opinion after the Congress and the BJP approached the Raj Bhavan arguing that the House rules did not allow it.
