NEW DELHI: The Kerala government on Saturday, in one unusual move, approached the Supreme Court against President Droupadi Murmu's indecision regarding the bills passed by the Assembly.

Earlier, from the seven bills sent by Kerala governor Arif Mohammad Khan to the president, only Lokayukta Bill was approved. Meanwhile, the bill to remove the governor from the post of university chancellor, the university law amendment bill and the bill to change the structure of the search committee to appoint vice-chancellors were sent back by the President without approval. And now, the state filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court citing ambiguity in the decision regarding the other three bills.

The petition filed by state chief secretary and MLA TP Ramakrishnan implicates the President's Secretary and the Governor. The petition also points out the violation of Articles 14, 200 and 201 of the Constitution committed by the president of India.
