Last Tuesday, Haryana State Corporation postponed the hearing to November 25. “Part of the debate was heard today, and the case will be heard next Thursday for further debate,” said Parampreet Singh Bajwa, a petitioner and defender at the High Courts of Punjab and Haryana.

The request seeks the attorney-general’s consent to initiate contempt proceedings by the high courts of Punjab and Haryana, which are currently hearing the above-mentioned cases. It was submitted in Haryana rather than Punjab, because the latter’s spokesperson, APS Deol, had resigned at the time.
