An Appeal to President!

An Appeal to President!

The conflict between the DMK government led by Chief Minister Stalin and Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi continues. From criticizing the Dravidian model to the removal of Minister Senthil Balaji from the cabinet for overstepping the bounds, the list of conflicts between the two sides goes on and on.
Against this background the Chief Minister M.K Stalin has written a letter to the President complaining against Governor R.N Ravi that he is not fit to be the Governor. The gist of the letter: The Constitution of India states that the executive power of the state is vested in the Governor. However, the Governor, who is only the nominal head of the state, has to exercise his powers only on the advice and counsel of the Cabinet Committee headed by the Chief Minister of the state. The Governor must have full faith in the Constitution. India is a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic and a Governor who does not believe in any of these fundamental principles is unfit to hold constitutional office.
A governor who becomes a politician should never continue in office. The framers of the Constitution could never have envisaged a situation where the Governor would delay and obstruct the assent of bills passed by the Legislative Assembly or go against the basic principles of the Constitution such as federalism and secularism. But that is how Governor Ravi is acting.
R.N Ravi, by his conduct and activities, has proved that he is one-sided and unfit to hold the office of Governor. So he deserves to be removed from the high post. R.N as governor. I leave it to the President of India to decide whether Ravi's extension is appropriate. This is stated in the letter.
The time when this letter was written by Chief Minister Stalin has received much attention because Chief Minister Stalin wrote this letter yesterday when the Governor R.N Ravi was in intensive consultation with Home Minister Amit Shah. It was in between that consultation that Stalin wrote a letter to Delhi from here.
Chief Minister M.K.Stalin has written the letter to the President with pain as there is no other way to run the government smoothly.So, the Governor's duty is to implement whatever the chosen Chief Minister says. There should be no ego between the Governor and the Chief Minister. A governor is like a judge. The Governor should not express his political opinion even if he belongs to a particular political party.
If something goes wrong, you can point it out, but leave it at that and don't give political opinions. The judges and the president have never spoken about politics anywhere. Likewise the Governor of Tamilnadu should also take a neutral stand. Now the conflict between the Governor and the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu has taken a serious shape. Will the President at least intervene and take a good decision for the people of Tamil Nadu?
Let's wait and see!
