Don’t intervene in powers of President: O. Rajagopal on resolution against Governor
Thiruvananthapuram: O. Rajagopal MLA said the Kerala government should not intervene in the powers of the President by approving a resolution moved by the Opposition to recall the Governor.
“The resolution against Governor Arif Mohammad Khan is in the interest of the Congress. I hope that the government does not support the resolution. But if the Speaker approves the resolution, I will oppose it,” said Rajagopal.
“The Opposition’s allegation that I supported the resolution is baseless. I did not support the resolution,” said Rajagopal. In response to Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala’s allegation, the MLA said that his speech against the resolution was recorded in the Assembly.
Meanwhile, the government has informed the Raj Bhavan that the resolution cannot be approved. The advisory committee meeting on Friday is likely to reject the resolution.
However, Ramesh Chennithala said that if the resolution is rejected, the opposition will protest inside the Assembly.
“If the resolution fails, we will take legal action. If the government is honest, we hope that they will support the Opposition in this regard,” Ramesh Chennithala added.
