HC notice to Delhi govt over Anshu Prakash’s plea

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued a notice to Delhi government, Assembly Speaker and the four committees of Delhi Assembly on the application filed by Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash against the privilege proceedings initiated against him.

The court has posted the matter for November 27 for further hearing.

Prakash, on November 13, approached the high court challenging the fresh breach of privilege proceedings initiated against him by the Assembly.

The privilege proceedings were initiated against him on the basis of complaints by two of assembly’s committees named Protocol Committee and Question and Reference Committee.

Prakash has contended that proceedings initiated against him are clearly “violative of the Constitution” as well as the Rules of the House and termed them “illegal and unconstitutional”.
