Appointment of HP Chief Parliamentary Secys quashed

The Tribune - Himachal Pradesh, India
Shimla, August 18: In a landmark judgment which will have far-reaching political implications across the country, the Himachal Pradesh High Court today quashed the appointment of eight Chief Parliamentary Secretaries and four Parliamentary Secretaries with immediate effect and ruled that the Chief Minister, Mr Virbhadra Singh, had no powers to make such appointments. The court also directed the Chief Secretary to see to it that the order was implemented forthwith. ...
... Mr Sat Pal Jain, national convener of the BJP legal cell who appeared for the petitioner, said the government should not only implement the order, but also recover the expenses incurred from the state exchequer from the illegal appointees while they were in office or the Chief Minister who appointed them.
