Apex court bars Amarinder from entering Punjab assembly

In a jolt to former Punjab chief minister and expelled legislator Amarinder Singh, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to allow him to attend the assembly. The budget session is to begin on February 27.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by chief justice KG Balakrishnan declined to grant any interim relief to Singh, expelled last September from the House for alleged involvement in the Amritsar land scam. "We are not inclined to pass any interim order," the bench said, declining the plea to allow Singh to participate in assembly proceedings without the right to vote.
