During today's hearing in Punjab's case, the CJI had also lamented that Chief Ministers of States and Governors should ideally be working with each other to resolve such issues. "Little bit of soul searching needed from Chief Minister and Governor. Governor must know that he is not an elected representative... He can withhold assent and send it back once.. This is particularly on money bills ... Why should parties be required to move the Supreme Court for convening the House? ... We are the oldest democracy and these issues must be sorted between the Chief Minister and the Governor," the CJI said.
