Chandigarh | In a recent development, the High Court has granted relief to Manisha Gulati, former chairperson of the Punjab Women's Commission, by imposing a stay on the Punjab government's order to vacate her official residence. The court has issued a notice to the Punjab government regarding Gulati's application and has requested a response. A hearing on the matter has been scheduled for September 14.
Manisha Gulati had filed an application stating that her appeal against the decision of the Single Bench, which upheld the termination of her extension, is currently under consideration. In light of this, she requested that the order to vacate her government residence be stayed. The Punjab government had revoked Gulati's extension as the chairperson of the Punjab Women's Commission, leading to her removal from the position.
The High Court's decision to grant a stay on the order to vacate Gulati's official residence provides temporary relief to her during the ongoing legal proceedings. This stay allows her to continue residing in her government-provided accommodation until a final decision is reached.
