Stalin
urged
the
President
to
uphold
federalism
and
protect
the
ethos
of
the
Constitution,
the
release
said,
adding

New
Delhi,
Jan
13:

Tamil
Nadu
Governor
RN
Ravi
was
engaged
in
a
“political
ideological
conflict”
with
the
state
government,
and
he
should
be
advised
against
doing
so
and
asked
to
abide
by
Cabinet
directions
on
various
matters,
Chief
Minister
M
K
Stalin
has
urged
President
Draupadi
Murmu.

A
state
government
release
here
mentioned
the
key
points
highlighted
by
the
CM
to
the
President
in
the
letter,
which
was
handed
by
a
Law
Minister
S
Regupathy-led
delegation
to
her
in
New
Delhi
earlier
in
the
day.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin

Detailing
the
developments
of
January
9
where
the
Governor
deviated
from
the
government
prepared
address
of
his
to
the
state
Assembly,
Stalin
has
told
her
this
was
against
the
traditions
of
the
House.

The
release
further
said
that
while
Stalin
informed
Murmu
that
the
office
of
the
Governor
was
a
“high
one”
and
all
accorded
due
respect
to
that,
the
person
in
the
gubernatorial
post
should
be
above
politics.

walks

“But
Governor
Ravi
is
maintaining
a
politically
ideological
conflict
with
the
Tamil
Nadu
government
which
is
completely
contradictory
to
our
Constitution,”
the
statement
in
Tamil
quoted
him
as
saying.

He
was
opposed
to
the
culture,
literature
and
equitable
politics
of
Tamil
people
and
could
not
accept
concepts
like
Dravidian
policies,
equality,
social
justice
and
rational
thinking
being
followed
in
Tamil
Nadu,
Stalin
said.

Ravi
was
speaking
against
Tamil
culture,
literature
and
social
system
in
public
fora
and
the
January
9
incident
was
an
extension
of
this,
he
alleged.

Article
163
(1)
of
the
Constitution
says
the
Governor
should
abide
by
the
recommendations
of
the
council
of
ministers.

He
had
no
right
to
deviate
from
the
speech
prepared
by
the
government
for
his
address,
Stalin
said,
adding
the
parts
he
skipped
were
the
names
of
late
stalwarts
Dr
BR
Ambedkar,
EVR
Periyar,
CN
Annadurai
and
M
Karunanidhi
and
terms
including
social
justice,
self-respect
and
Dravidian
model
of
governance.

A
man
in
a
such
a
constitutional
post
doing
so
and
disrespecting
was
‘regrettable’ and
the
CM
had
to,
therefore,
bring
in
a
resolution
against
the
deviations,
the
letter
read.

Stalin
urged
the
President
to
uphold
federalism
and
protect
the
ethos
of
the
Constitution,
the
release
said,
adding
he
also
flagged
Ravi’s
pending
assent
for
various
Assembly
bills
which
affected
governance.

Tamil
Nadu
was
a
state
that
welcomed
all
and
practiced
unity
in
diversity,
but
Ravi
was
speaking
against
these.

“The
CM
has
requested
the
President
to
intervene
in
the
matter
and
direct
Ravi
to
act
according
to
cabinet
recommendations,
as
mandated
by
the
Constitution,
enabling
good
governance
for
the
public,”
it
said.

Further,
Stalin
requested
her
to
advise
Ravi
not
to
maintain
an
“ideologically
conflicting
stand”.

The
letter
was
written
to
the
President
with
an
intention
to
ensure
cordial
relations
between
important
institutions
in
the
democracy
and
they
being
able
to
perform
their
functions,
the
release
quoted
Stalin
as
telling
Murmu.
