TN oppn parties cry foul over guv's meeting with officials

Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit

He also inspected e-toilets in the bus stand and also visited a residential society - Sunnyside Residency in the city.

He also held discussions with NGOs and resident welfare associations working on solid waste management.

"Till now I thought Maharashtra was better in cleanliness but now I have changed my mind as Tamil Nadu is far better".

On coming to know that he was facing criticism for conducting a review meeting with government officials, he told top officials that it was common for him to hold meetings with officials since his gubernatorial days in Assam. What raised many eyebrows was the fact that even Municipal Administration Minister and senior AIADMK leader SP Velumani who hails from Coimbatore was not invited to the Tuesday's meeting.

The Puducherry chief minister is himself engaged in a bitter spat with Lt Governor Kiran Bedi over her style of functioning. "In Delhi and Puducherry, at least there is a justification for governors intervening in government administration since they are Union territories".

DMK leader M.K. Stalin said the Governor's action would erode the autonomy of the state.

BJP State president Tamilisai Soundararajan said the Governor had acted well within his powers and that he did not violate any norm.

Joining the chorus against Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit for holding a meeting with government officials in Coimbatore, Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy today said only elected governments can hold such interactions. "There is nothing wrong with Governor visiting various places but taking unilateral decisions is wrong".

DMK MP and organising secretary RS Bharati alleged that the BJP was trying to repeat in Tamil Nadu what it has done in other states while saying, "It is completely unacceptable". This only shows that the State government is fully under the control of the Centre, he said. The Governor would do well to stay within his constitutional limits and not call district-level officials for a meeting. They said he had thus infringed on the rights of an elected government.

While campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidates for civic elections here on Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath claimed that his government was committed to reinstate the glory of industrial city.

A fringe political outfit Thanthai Periyar Dravida Kazhagam, led by its chief K Ramakrishnan, tried to hold a black flag demonstration and were removed by the police.
