Thiruvananthapuram: CPM state secretariat has decided to initiate a campaign against Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan over his threat that he will sack the ministers who ‘lower the dignity’ of the governor's office. The strategy will be finalised in the Left Democratic Front’s meeting.

On Monday the governor had said, "The CM and Council of Ministers have every right to advise the Governor. But statements of individual ministers that lower the dignity of the office of the Governor, can invite action including withdrawal of pleasure."

Calling the governor’s statements "anti-Constitutional and anti-democratic", the CPM had on Monday asked president Draupadi Murmu to intervene. The party added that Khan had only “exposed his political bias and hostility” towards the LDF government.
