The BRS leaders and netizens took strong exception to the tweet of Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan who attacked chief secretary A Santhi Kumari. Reacting to the state government’s move on pending bills , the Governor instead of addressing the issue or clarifying why the bills were pending, took the issue personally.
The netizens opined that instead of clearing the bills with a single signature, why behave like a politician? She became a pawn in the hands of the ruling BJP, many commented.
The BRS leaders pointed out that Governor accused the chief secretary of not calling on her after assuming the office. But the chief secretary A Santi Kumari took charge on January 11 and she went to Raj Bhavan on January 26 and spent the whole day with the Governor. “Instead of spending time on Twitter, the Governor may read the bills and clear them at the earliest,” they said.
Meanwhile, the CPI (M) leaders B V Raghavulu and Tammineni Veerbhadram too echoed the same feelings. They said the attitude of the Governor is totally against the spirit of the Constitution. She should either clear or return the bills proposing corrections.
