Governor Punjab again writes to CM Mann, objects to deputing Aman Arora for unfurling National Flag

TC Bureau Chandigarh: Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit has raised the issue of conviction of Cabinet Minister Aman Arora in a criminal case with Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.

In a letter to CM Mann, Governor Purohit questioned deputing Aman Arora for unfurling National Flag on Republic Day. The governor has asked CM to submit a complete report on the matter.

“From the representation, I understand that on 21st, December 2023 a court of law convicted Mr. Aman Arora for two years and the conviction has not yet been stayed by the competent higher court. As per the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in the case of Lilly Thomas vs. Union of India, the members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) stand divested of their membership if convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for a term not less than two years by a trial court,” the letter stated.

“The representation also raised the question of National Flag hoisting by Mr. Arora on 26th January alleged that the act of entrusting a disqualified legislator with the symbolic representation of the nation on a day as momentous as Republic Day not only undermines the sanctity of the legal system but also sends an unsettling message to the citizenry regarding the government’s commitment to ethical governance.

This is a serious matter involving non-compliance of the directions given by the Supreme Court of India and Can I have a detailed report on the entire issue,” the letter further read.
