The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has issued the following statement today (on October 14, 2020) on Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari’s remark over secularism:


The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India strongly objects to the remark made by Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari over secularism. The Party feels it is a serious violation of the Oath of Office he had undertaken while assuming the office. Such remark is also an insult to our Constitution the Preamble of which specifically upholds India’s commitment to secularism.

The Party urges the President of India under whose pleasure he is the Governor to dismiss him as he has proved to be not fit for the post.

The Party expresses its serious concern over the conduct of the Governors appointed by the President in states which are under non-BJP elected governments.

The Party also appeals to the President to ensure that the heads of constitutional bodies pay their undiluted respect to our Constitution.
