TheUnion Governmentled by the BJP party is putting pressure on the state government by placing governors where they are not in power. Especially in states like Tamil Nadu, Kerala and West Bengal, the state governors are acting indifferently without giving approval to the bills brought by the state governments. As a result, welfare schemes are not being available to the people.
Tamil Nadu Governor R.N Ravi is constantly having various conflicts with the Tamil Nadu Government. He has been giving controversial comments especially against the ruling government. Similarly, he is dragging out the bills passed in the Legislative Assembly by the government elected by the people. As a result, the Tamil Nadu government has filed a case in the Supreme Court against the Governor's inaction.
The judges hearing the case serious have said that the allegations made by the Tamilnadu Government that the Goverrnor has kept pending bill passed in the State Assembly was serious. It is a very important matter, underscored. Governors cannot suspend bills passed by the elected assembly, they said stating that it was worrisome to keep the bills pending for a long time.
In this situation, Governor RN Ravi has sent more than 10 bills passed in the Legislative Assembly of Tamil Nadu to the Tamil Nadu Government asking for an explanation. Not even a week has passed since the Supreme Court said it was a serious matter, and the Governor has sent back the bills, causing a stir.
Following this, the Tamil Nadu government is planning to convene a special legislative assembly to re-pass these bills and send them to the governor. Accordingly, a special meeting of the Assembly will be held on Saturday (November 18).
The 10 bills sent back by Governor R.N Ravi on that day will be passed again. There will be no change in this.The constitutional provision states that if the state government re-passes the bills and sends them to the governor, the governor has no power to shelve them. Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly Speaker Appavu while speaking to the media yesterday said, ” the bills rejected by the Governor will be passed again by the government and sent back to the Governor. If the bills are sent again, the Governor should give his approval.''
Will he approve the bills keeping in mind the Supreme Court verdict? Or is there any other way to delay it further ? We have to wait and see.
