Madras HC advocates write to President to recall TN Guvtext_fields
Chennai: A group of advocates from Madras High Court has written a letter to President Droupadi Murmu to call back the Governor of Tamil Nadu R.N. Ravi.
In the letter, the advocates informed the President that calling the Governor back would lead to an increase in the law-and-order situation in the state as envisaged by the constitution
The advocates questioned the power of the Governor in dismissing the Tamil Nadu minister, Senthil Balaji.
The letter also mentioned that the Governor was also trying to project himself as an alternate power centre to the elected government which was not good.
The Power of the Governor under Article 164(!) of the Constitution could not act on its own discretion and added that the Governor was bound to act according to the advice of the Chief Minister, they said.
The Governor dismissing Senthil Balaji from the council of ministers was an absolute violation of Articles 163 and 164 of the Constitution, they added.
It is to be noted that the Tamil Nadu Governor, R.N. Ravi, and the Stalin government have been on a confrontationist path which had often led to public spats.
