What were you doing for two years? SC criticizes Governor for lack of transparency, harshly criticizes him

governor

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court harshly criticized Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan. The court criticized for the delay in taking decisions on the bills passed by the assembly. The court said the Governor's manner of withholding bills could not be justified.

The court observed that the Governor cannot sabotage the rights of the governments. The court also asked what the governor was doing for two years without settling the bills. When considered the case earlier, the court had said that the Governor was only a symbolic head.

The state chief minister and the minister who introduced the bill should meet the governor and discuss and resolve the current issues. Meantime, the court also said that they cannot intervene in the act of sending the seven bills to the President.

The court asked shouldn’t there be a transparency in the activities of the governor. Eight bills passed by the Kerala Assembly were submitted to the Governor for assent. The state government approached the court after it was held without taking a decision.

The Supreme Court had criticized Arif Muhammad Khan's practice of sitting on the bills without taking a decision. The court had directed the governor to study the verdict criticizing the Punjab governor.
