On Wednesday afternoon, Minister MB Rajesh, and Chief Secretary VP Joy visited the Raj Bhavan to invite Governor in person to the event. Despite rejecting the invitation,

Governor also shared his displeasure over the government failing to invite him to the Onam celebrations.

The closing ceremony of the anti-drug campaign will be held on November 1. The Governor stated that he would not be able to attend the event.

"I excepted that government will invite me to Onam celebrations, the annual cultural festival of the state. But I didn't receive any invitation. However, someone issued a statement in the media that Governor will be unable to attend Onam events due to a programme in Attapadi. I think I was sidelined deliberately from taking part in Onam events," said the governor as expressing his disappointment with the government.
