Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin today (9 June) said that his government is consulting legal experts to go to court against Governor RN Ravi for delay in giving assent to Bills passed by the State Assembly.
The Assembly had earlier passed a resolution calling upon the President and the Centre to fix a certain time limit for Governors to decide upon a Bill.
In April, the Supreme Court had asked Governors to decide upon Bills as soon as possible while hearing a case filed by the Telangana government on the same issue.
Chief Minister Stalin also supported Higher Education Minister K Ponmudy's allegations of Governor Ravi delaying convocations in state universities by not giving dates. Ponmudy had said that the delay was also because the Governor wanted to invite Union ministers as guests.
Further, he said that the issue could be resolved by making the Chief Minister as the Chancellor of state universities.
