National Secretary of the Communist Party of India (CPI), K Narayana, lashed out at the Prime Minister Modi-led BJP government on Thursday, calling for the removal of governors from all states.
“Government system is not useful for our country,” said the CPI leader.
Speaking about the ongoing feud between the government of Telangana and Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan over the ‘phone tapping’ and the other between the governor of Kerala, Arif Mohammad Khan and the government of Pinarayi Vijayan, K Narayana said: “The governor system itself is not helpful to our country. The governors in the non BJP led states are causing trouble for the state governments – West Bengal, Kerala, Tamilnadu and the latest Telangana are all examples. The governor is used as a tool to governments. Governors must follow the clear guidelines of the constitution. Governors have no right to intervene. We demand to recall all governors.”
Telangana governor, Tamilisai Soundararajan, criticized the TRS government in the state on Wednesday, saying she suspected her phone was tapped.
“In a tape release, they wanted to drag (state government) Raj Bhavan and call them Tushar. Tushar was my ADC… I suspect my phone is being tapped… Tushar called me two days ago to wish me Diwali. Only after that that, they called Tushar…” said Soundararajan.
The governor of Telangana and the KCR government in the state disagree on a number of issues.
But during Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Ramagundam, K Narayana said: “PM Modi will visit Ramagundem on the 12th. In Telangana, they are privatizing everything and also not carrying out what was promised during the separation of states. The people will show their anger against the PM by showing black flags and observing a bandh in Ramagundam. We are organizing an action committee composed of all political parties.”
Asked about its alliance with TRS in the Munugode midterm elections earlier this month, he said: “The BJP has a very communal and undemocratic rule. They came here for unnatural midterm elections. We wanted to teach them a lesson. We saw our strength and closed. join with other secular forces. We joined TRS because it is a secular party. Our decision to join TRS was approved by the election results. Congress is incapable of fighting the BJP. There is no such thing as a third front. Whoever is against BJP. , we will mobilize them. We just want to bring the anti-BJP into one slide.”
