The Indian National Congress (INC) leader Ashok Chavan has recently alleged that some governors are indulging in politics and trying to destabilise the Opposition.
Chavan, a former Maharashtra chief minister, said that some governors have been appointed to destabilise the Opposition and that it is a matter of concern. He added that such appointments are unconstitutional and should be questioned.
Chavan further said that the governors are supposed to be impartial and not be involved in politics. He said that the governors are appointed to ensure that the state governments run smoothly and not to interfere in the political affairs of the state.
The Congress leader’s statement comes in the wake of reports that some governors are actively involved in politics. Recently, the Karnataka Governor, Vajubhai Vala, had appointed BJP leader B.S. Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of Karnataka, despite the fact that the BJP was the single largest party but was short of the majority mark. This had led to a political storm in the state and had resulted in the Congress and JD(S) forming a coalition government.
Chavan has also alleged that some governors are not following the Constitution and are working to benefit the ruling party. He said that such behaviour is unacceptable and should not be tolerated.
The Congress leader’s statement has come as a warning to the ruling party and has raised questions about the impartiality of the governors. This is a matter of serious concern and should be addressed at the earliest.
