CPI Welcomes HC verdict on Governor's Role
Updated: May 5, 2019
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement:
CPI hails the judgment of Madras High Court, upholding the principle of democracy in Puducherry. Governors and Lt. Governors are trying to interfere in the administration in the states/UTs where the opposition parties are in power. There is continuous harassment of state government in Delhi and Puducherry by the respective Lt. Governors. This is done at the instructions of BJP government at the Centre.
Now the Madras High Court judgment gives upper hand to elected state government over the nominated Lt. Governor.
It is time that statehood should be granted to Puducherry and Delhi.
