The court further prohibited chief parliamentary secretaries from availing the facilities of ministers and functioning like ministers.

The government counsel informed the court that all chief parliamentary secretaries were functioning and working as per the law. The government had already clarified that no one is availing the facilities of CPS ministers. Twelve BJP MLAs, including Una MLA Satpal Satti, have challenged the appointment of the chief parliamentary secretary. In the petition, the appointment of CPS Sanjay Awasthi from Arki assembly constituency, Sundar Singh from Kullu, Ram Kumar from Doon, Mohan Lal Brakta from Rohru, Ashish Butail from Palampur and Kishori Lal from Baijnath has been challenged.
