Mamata attacks Maha Guv, says some people in constitutional posts acting like BJP mouthpieces


Kolkata, Nov 14: Hitting out at Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari for recommending President's Rule in the state after the assembly polls, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said some people in constitutional posts are acting like BJP mouthpieces.

These people wish to run a parallel administration in some states, she said. Banerjee said some nominated persons are exceeding their brief.

"They should not supersede the central government. The Centre must take care of this," she said.

"I generally do not comment on constitutional posts, but a few people (governors) are acting just like BJP mouthpieces. In my state too, you have seen what is going on - they want to run a parralel administration," Banerjee said.

The central and state governments are elected by the people and the federal structure must work as per Constitution, she said.

"They (governments) should be allowed to work," the CM said. President's Rule was imposed in Maharashtra on Tuesday after Koshyari in a report to the Centre stated that formation of a stable government was impossible in the current situation despite all his efforts, drawing flak from non-BJP parties.
