Chandigarh, May 2 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today demanded that a separate High Court be set up for the state by bifurcating the Punjab and Haryana High Court on the basis of 60:40 ratio in the light of the Punjab Reorganisation Act, 1966.

The Chief Minister expressed these views while interacting with a delegation of the Union Ministry of Law and Justice, headed by Additional Secretary R K Bhargava who was here to discuss the modalities for setting up a separate High Court for Haryana.

Mr Hooda said a separate High Court could be set up by bifurcating the present building of the Punjab and Haryana High Court as it was done in the case of Vidhan Sabha and Civil Secretariat when Haryana was carved out of the joint Punjab.

He pointed out that the assets and liabilties were also divided on 60:40 ratio in case of the Assembly and the Secretariat.

He apprised the delegation that there were 53 court rooms in the Punjab and Haryana High Court and separate High Court for Haryana could easily be accommodated in the present building by making the required alterations and additions.

The other members of the Central delegation were Law Ministry Joint Secretary P K Seth and Under Secretary Anurag Bhalla.
