Governor is a threat to peace and should be removed soon, Tamil Nadu’s ruling DMK submits a memorandum to President Murmu.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin-led party has declared Governor RN Ravi unfit for a constitutional post. It is alleged that he unnecessarily delays clearing the bills.
Tamil Nadu’s ruling party DMK has submitted a memorandum to the President, describing Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi as a “threat to peace”.
The memorandum has sought his removal to “prevent a democratically elected government from serving the people”.
DMK said in a memorandum submitted to President Draupadi Murmu, “Governor RN Ravi has violated the oath to protect, protect and defend the Constitution and the law.”
The DMK alleged that he unnecessarily delays clearing the bills passed by the Assembly.
Governor is a threat to peace: ‘Some people may consider his statements as anti-national.’
The party led by Chief Minister MK Stalin declared RN Ravi unfit for a constitutional post saying, “Some people may consider his statements as anti-national as his statements try to incite dissatisfaction with the government. He deserves to be sacked.”
DMK wrote a letter to the MPs against the Governor.
The DMK had earlier this month written to “all like-minded MPs” urging them to support the proposal to remove RN Ravi.
According to media reports, 20 bills in Tamil Nadu are awaiting the approval of the Governor.
In April, DMK leaders protested him for not sending the NEET exemption bill to the President after it was passed twice in the state assembly.
What is the constitutional position regarding the Governor?
The constitutional position is that the President appoints or removes the Governor. If the state cabinet sends a bill, the governor can send it back once.
If the cabinet sends the bill again to the governor, he cannot send it back.
