  4. Haryana Municipal Election Rules, 1978, Rule 72-A - Thus neither under Section 21 of the Act nor under Rule 72-A of the Election Rules of 1978, there is any requirement that to ascertain the wish of the elected members of the Committee, motion of no-confidence has to be put to vote by secret ballot - Haryana Municipal Act, 1973 (24 of 1973) S. 21.  Held, that thus neither under Section 21 of the Act nor under Rule 72-A of the Election Rules of 1978, there is any requirement that to ascertain the wish of the elected members of the Committee, motion of no-confidence has to be put to vote by secret ballot. If two-third elected members of the Committee are openly supporting the motion of no confidence against the President of the Committee, in that situation, merely on the asking of the minority group having less than one-third members of the elected members of the Committee to put the motion of no-confidence to vote by secret ballot, the Presiding Officer of the meeting is not required to ask the majority group of the elected members of the Committee to cast their vote by secret ballot. Only in a situation when the provision of law clearly requires that No Confidence Motion has to be put to vote by secret ballot, the Presiding Officer of the meeting is duty bound to put the motion of no-confidence to vote by secret ballot, even on the asking of one elected member of the Committee. But when the statute does not provide for secret ballot in case of considering No Confidence Motion against the President or the Vice-President of the Committee, the court cannot impliedly read such provision of law in the statute. If the wish of the House or the members of the Committee is not clear, then it will be open for the Presiding Officer of the meeting to put the motion of no-confidence to vote by secret ballot, but it cannot be laid down as a law that in all circumstances, the Presiding Officer is duty bound to put the motion of no-confidence to vote by secret ballot, if demanded even by one member of the Committee, irrespective of the fact that two-third elected members of the Committee have openly and unequivocally supported the motion of no-confidence not only by giving their respective affidavits, but also by putting their signatures on the proceedings of the meeting held for considering No Confidence motion.  (179) P.L.R.
