These individuals wouldn’t have the fundamental information, integrity & impartiality to carry the workplace of Governor and develop into a humiliation to the Authorities and folks of the State. The picture of the Governor as merely an agent of the Union sitting in state capitals and desperately in search of a chance to run down the state authorities when it’s within the fingers of a celebration against the celebration ruling at heart will deform our cooperative federalism and destroy our democracy,” the MPs alleged.
