Giving a befitting reply to the Governor of state, the Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today apprised him how he had failed in his constitutional duty until he was reminded about it by citing a judgment of apex court.

Citing a video recording, the Chief Minister said that the Governor had started his speech with my government but however when hue and cry was made by opposition without any logic he preferred to use the word government only. Bhagwant Mann said that however when he reminded the Governor about the judgement given by Supreme Court, he changed his stance and used word my government. He said that the video recording from the records of Punjab Vidhan sabha is a proof that Governor is having a hostile approach towards the elected state government.

The Chief Minister said that the baseless and misleading statements by the Governor are demeaning the position of this post. He said that the statements being issued by the Governor are totally contrary to his actions in the state assembly which have a recorded proof too. Bhagwant Mann asked the Governor explain that why he had failed to discharge his constitutional duty by not using the word my government during his address.

The Chief Minister bemoaned that it is unfortunate that in the present central regime selected ones are unnecessarily peeping into the affairs of the elected ones. He said that undue hiccups are being raised to derail the smooth functioning of the state government. Bhagwant Mann said that as a fact of matter the gubernatorial Raj Bhawans are now acting as the state headquarters of the BJP which is a very dangerous trend for Indian democracy.
