kkk

CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi, who is engaged in a cold war with the state government, refused to read the policy address speech, mimicking the action of the Kerala Governor. Following this, Speaker M Appavu read out the speech in the House. Reading out the policy address, Appavu criticised the Governor by saying that the Tamil Nadu Assembly will not bow down to those who follow the path of Savarkar and Godse. With this, the Governor stormed out of the Assembly.

Governor said that he has disagreements over the customary address based on factual and moral grounds.

While addressing the house, the Governor said that lending his voice to these pages would constitute constitutional travesty and concluded his address.

“Hence with respect to the House I conclude my address,” the Governor said.

He also alleged that his request and advice to show due respect to the national anthem and play it at the beginning and end of the address has been ignored.

“I wish for a productive and healthy discussion for the good of the people,” the Governor said while concluding his address.
