New Delhi, Feb 10: Congress on Friday said that Tamil Nadu Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao must act in accordance with the Constitution on the issue of AIADMK general secretary V.K. Sasikala staking claim to form the government in the state.
"As far as Tamil Nadu is concerned, it is the internal matter of the AIADMK. But, we want the Governor to act in accordance with the Constitution provisions and also Supreme Court framework which has been illustrated in the Bommai case," said senior Congress leader and MP M. Veerappa Moily.
"I think they have to go by the strict law," he added.
The Supreme Court on Friday refused take up on priority a petition that sought stalling Sasikala Natarajan's swearing in Tamil Nadu chief minister. A petition had been filed seeking a stay on the swearing-in-ceremony until the verdict in the disproportionate assets case was pronounced.
