Yet another setback to state government; President denies assent to Kerala Co-operative Societies Amendment Bill

kerala

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a setback to the state government, President Droupadi Murmu on Tuesday denied assent to the Kerala Co-operative Societies Amendment Bill (Milma) passed by the Kerala Assembly. The Governor had referred 7 bills to the President without signing them. Four of these bills have been rejected by the President. The Kerala Co-operative Societies Amendment Bill intends to give the administrator of the dairy cooperative societies the power to vote in governing body elections.

The government calculated that it could take over the administration of Milma by giving the representative of the administrative committee the power to vote. However, with the President denying assent to the bill, the government has received a massive setback. The President has approved only one bill among the seven bills that were passed by the Kerala Assembly and referred to the President by the Governor.
