After this, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami had written a letter to the Assembly Speaker urging him to take action in this matter. After a month’s investigation, Vidhansabha Speaker Ritu Khanduri also took immediate action. But in the High Court, a single bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Tiwari heard the petitions filed against the dismissal order of more than 102 employees dismissed from the Assembly Secretariat. In the hearing, the order of his dismissal was stayed till further hearing. Along with this, the court said in its order that these employees will continue to work on their posts. After this order of the court, the government has come on the back foot.
