Giving relief to the 11 parliamentary secretaries in the Chhattisgarh government, the Bilaspur High Court on Friday dismissed petitions challenging their appointment, though it said they would not be able to work as ministers.
Reacting to the court verdict, Singh said it was a welcome judgement and that justice had been served.
"The decision is as per our expectations. I have said in the past also that the appointments are not wrong," he said.
"The state government has kept 11 additional ministers illegally. If the appointment had been cancelled, the government could have fallen," Baghel said.
