'Ask secretary, not me'; Governor Arif Mohammad Khan to media

arif-mohammad-khan

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Governor Arif Mohammad Khan has reiterated that the Supreme Court is a sacred cow as ambiguity looms over the decision on the stalled bills in the Kerala assembly.

“Whatever the Supreme Court directive is, it will be implemented. The court asked the Raj Bhavan Secretary to examine the verdict in the case between the Punjab government and the governor. So that kind of question should be directed at the secretary, but not at me” the Governor told the media.

The Kerala government had pointed out in the Supreme Court that the Governor had not taken a decision on many bills for two years. With this, the court instructed Attorney General R. Venkataramani to ask the Governor's Secretary to read the verdict in the case between the Punjab Government and the Governor, and later make a prompt response.

In the Punjab case judgment, the Supreme Court said the Governor does not have the power to indefinitely hold or veto the bills passed by the Assembly.
