Sack Meghalaya Governor: CPI(M)
Srinagar: Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has asked the President of India to ‘immediately sack the Governor of Meghalaya for his statement calling for boycott of Kashmiris.
In a state, CPI(M) said that Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy, in yet another outrageous statement, has endorsed a call for boycott of Kashmir and Kashmiris in the wake of the Pulwama tragedy. This comes at a time when Kashmiris, particularly students, in various parts of the country are being attacked, tormented and forced to leave.
“The Governor holds a Constitutional office. As the representative of the President of India, he is expected to act as the custodian of the Indian Constitution. This is not the first time he has made public comments which disgrace the post he holds and violate the fundamentals of the Indian Constitution. This is a transgression that is unacceptable. The President of India must immediately sack him,” the statement said.
