Governor may sign 3 non-controversial bills and avoid 5 controversial bills

governor-


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Governor may sign 3 non-controversial bills on the basis of the Ministers' briefing at Raj Bhavan. Abolition of the Public Service Commission (further functions of services under Waqf Board), amendment to vote for administrators in co-operative societies, and amendment to merge Malappuram District Bank with Kerala Bank are likely to be signed. Meanwhile, 5 controversial bills including the Lokayukta amendment, 5-member search committee, and the exclusion of the governor from the post of chancellor may not be signed.


A strategic move by the governor to sign three of these bills comes at a time when the government is preparing to approach the Supreme Court against the governor for not signing the 8 bills passed by the assembly. The Supreme Court will hear the Telangana government's case against the governor for not signing 9 bills on the 20th. Kerala may also join the case filed by the Telangana government in the Supreme Court.
