CM’s letter to Governor is immaturity!

Tikastra of Devendra Fadnavis

Mumbai: Opposition leader in the Tikastra Assembly Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday dismissed a letter written by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari as an immaturity of his advisers or officials. The Governor has also sought clarification on the issues raised by the Law and Justice Department regarding the OBC reservation ordinance. The governor has sought clarification on whether the ordinance should stand the test of law if challenged in the high or supreme court. Fadnavis, however, said that the state government was cheating OBCs by recommending the issuance of such an ordinance.

Regarding the controversy between the Chief Minister and the Governor, Fadnavis said that this should be the first letter written by the Chief Minister to the Governor in this manner in the history of the state. Delegations meet any Governor and the Governor sends their statements and demands to the Chief Minister and the Government. A delegation of 13 women MLAs had called on the governor and demanded a two-day special session to expedite the implementation of the Shakti Act in the state due to increasing rape and atrocities against women. Accordingly, the Governor had sent a letter to the Chief Minister. The governor has the power to direct the government. But the governor had instructed the chief minister to consider the issue. After a week-long study of some states across the country, the Chief Minister’s Office sent a letter to the Governor in this manner and gave it a political color.

Instead, the state police would have been ordered to take strict action and if the decision had been taken to enact the Shakti Act sooner, the government would have appeared to be more sensitive, Fadnavis said.

Requested information on OBC Ordinance

The law and justice department had said that the Supreme Court’s permission should be sought before implementing the OBC reservation ordinance. If this opinion is not accepted, then it has to be decided with the opinion of the Advocate General. Otherwise, the ordinance may be immediately adjourned by the High and Supreme Court. Therefore, the governor has sought an explanation from the government in this regard. But the government wants to issue an ordinance just to show the OBC community. It would be a betrayal of society.

Leaders of Mahavikas Aghadi have said that BJP should withdraw its candidate in Rajya Sabha by-election and elections should be held without any opposition.

In this context, Fadnavis said, I have not discussed this with anyone. The BJP has decided to contest the elections with this in mind. Whether a candidate withdraws will still be decided by the party’s steering committee.
