Kozikode : The Governor needs to observe only legal procedure with regard to the oath-taking of Saji Cherian as minister, said CPI(M) State Secretary.
Problem rises when Governor goes contrary to the law and Constitution. The Governor has been irking the government for some time now in the name of legality. The issue with regard to Saji Cherian is a continuation of that. In a Country where law prevails, the Governor cannot continue with this kind of stance
The Supreme Court has itself said that criticising the Constitution is not a crime, said MV Govindan speaking with media persons in Kanhangad’s Ananthampalla during the ongoing home-visit rounds of CPI(M). Also present were District Secretary MV Balakrishnan.
Context : Governor is pushing time for the swearing-in ceremony on vague ground of fully assessing the court ruling.
