Thiruvananthapuram: Former minister and CPM veteran Thomas Isaac has raised a sharp criticism against Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan over his directive to sack finance minister KN Balagopal. Isaac criticised that the governor has "lost his nuts."
He was reacting to the "withdrawal of pleasure" of Khan for finance minister KN Balagopal to continue in the office.
"Kerala governor has taken yet another unprecedented step. Invoking the doctrine of ‘pleasure’ he asks the CM to remove the finance minister, who attracted his displeasure, from the cabinet. The most generous comment can be that the guy has lost his nuts," Isaac tweeted.
Khan on Wednesday morning had sent a letter to chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan to sack Balagopal as he was irked by a statement of the minister.
CM immediately declined the demand.
