New Delhi (June 17, 2014): A day after the bid of NDA government to remove governors of some states appointed by the Congress was exposed, the Congress party today slammed government’s move terming as “political vendetta” and said the “dictatorial” step will have “serious repercussions”.
It asked the central government to ensure constitutional appropriateness.
“Governors being constitutional authorities should not be subjected to a public debate. We ask the central government to ensure constitutional appropriateness. The May 2010 Supreme Court order should be followed in letter and spirit,” Chairman of Congress Communication Department Ajay Maken said here.
Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad also reminded the government about the May 2010 judgment of the Supreme Court and said the Centre does not have the brief to remove Governors “in arbitrary and capricious manner with the change of power”.
