A day after Punjab and Haryana high court quashed the appointment of 18 chief parliamentary secretaries (CPSes) in the SAD-BJP government of Punjab, chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Saturday said the government will appeal against the orders in Supreme Court.

“I have not read the complete order but I talked with advocate general to challenge the order in Supreme Court”, said Badal, adding that he would not comment on the ruling.

The CM was in Jalandhar for his sangat darshan (public contact) programme at Bhatnura Lubana village in Adampur assembly segment.
