Nainital, Nov 25 (PTI) The Uttarakhand High Court has upheld the order of the Speaker revoking 228 ad-hoc appointments in the state assembly secretariat.

A division bench of Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice RC Khulbe on Thursday quashed the order of the single-bench to reinstate the dismissed ad-hoc employees and upheld Speaker Ritu Khanduri's order in this regard. The state assembly secretariat had filed a special appeal before the division bench challenging the single bench order.

The court said the order of dismissal cannot be stayed.
