Arguments over status of Chandigarh continue
By Thetribune 10-Sep-2019
- The arguments over the status of Chandigarh as the capital of Punjab and Haryana continue. More than 50 years after Chandigarh came into being, the Centre today told the Punjab and Haryana High Court that the city was neither a part of Punjab nor Haryana from the territorial point of view.
- Appearing before the Bench, Additional Solicitor-General of India Satya Pal Jain submitted: “Chandigarh is a union territory and a capital of both Punjab and Haryana. However, from the territorial point of view, it is neither a part of Punjab nor of Haryana”.
- He, at the same time, sought additional time to file a detailed reply on the issue. Taking a note of his submissions, the Bench fixed September 23 as the next date of hearing in the matter.
- The Bench had earlier asked Punjab and Haryana to come out with some document to show that the city was the capital of the two states. The query came during the hearing of a petition filed by an advocate seeking reservation in the two states by virtue of him being a city resident.
