Chandigarh:

The Punjab government on Wednesday informed the Punjab and Haryana high court that chief principal secretary to Punjab chief minister, Suresh Kumar, only held a temporary position in the government and had no independent powers.


The state made it clear that Kumar was not occupying any cadre or ex-cadre post of IAS in the state. Punjab chief secretary Karan Avtar gave this information through an affidavit submitted to the high court, which is hearing a petition challenging Kumar’s appointment.

The bench also asked the counsel for the person who challenged Kumar’s appointment to inform the court about the functions (as per his information) performed by the chief principal secretary in this case. The case will be heard on March 7.

The Punjab government has filed an appeal against the January 17, 2018, orders passed by a single bench of the high court that had quashed Kumar’s appointment as chief principal secretary.

Mohali resident Ramandeep Singh had the appointment. Kumar was made the chief principal secretary immediately after CM Amarinder Singhled Congress government came to power in March 2017.

The single bench’s order dated January 17, 2018, however, was stayed by a division bench of the high court on February 14, 2018, while observing that the order passed by the single bench was “Corum non judice” (without jurisdiction) and the matter required “deeper deliberations
