Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann has said that if the Governor feels that after his letter, I will compromise for the fear of snatching the CM’s chair, then know that I will not compromise. Mann was replying to his letter to Governor BL Purohit on Saturday. Mann said that the governor’s letter gives a glimpse of his power hunger. He has a habit of giving orders. The letters might also have been made to write from above. The governor must have just signed.
On Friday, Governor BL Purohit had given a letter to Mann, warning him to send a report to the President under Article 356 of the Constitution and initiate legal action.
After the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Punjab in the year 2022, there is a constant tussle between Governor BL Purohit and Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. The Governor has written more than six letters to the CM on different issues.
Know in a sequential manner, what CM Mann said
CM Bhagwant Mann said that there is a daily fuss. Today I will share all the details regarding this. It is not a new thing that the Governor writes a letter and writes some order or language in it, by which Punjabis are humiliated. We keep answering that we will be fine. There will be such orders from above. Not only Punjab, other states are also suffering from this misery.
threatened to topple the government
Yesterday the Governor threatened the peace loving people of Punjab that I will impose President’s rule on you. I will recomend section 356 and break the government and recommend governor’s rule. The fight has been going on since 16th March itself. Now understanding from the lower level, they have come to attack. The governor is making direct threats. Can not replying to the letter be a reason for President’s rule?
In law and order control, gives data to the governor
Law and order is completely under control. When the Governor has a meeting with the Ministry of Home Affairs, we give these figures to him. He knows everything. Now taking out the letter, you are saying that law and order is bad.
Wrote 16 letters, have replied to 9
The governor wrote me 16 letters. Have answered 9 of them. Rest of the answers are ready. Many things have been asked in such a way that it takes time to get the information. The governor has 6 bills pending. Apart from these, 2 former CMs are from the time of Captain Amarinder Singh’s government.
The fight between elected and selected is dangerous
There is an elected government in Punjab. 3.5 crore people have voted. Got 92 seats. The elections have been held according to the constitution. After passing the bill in the cabinet, the elected government gets it passed in the assembly and sends it to the governor. which is stopped. So then the fight between the elected and the selected is dangerous for the federal structure.
Never asked on RDF, GST and farmers
Has the governor ever written a letter to RDF? Will he walk with me and ask the Center to give RDF money. Ever asked about GST money, how much money is stuck with the Centre. Have you ever asked about the farmers that the farmers are protesting on the road. 99% of those demands are related to the Centre. Has the governor ever stood with Punjab? The Governor pressed for affiliation of Haryana colleges from Panjab University Chandigarh. He did not talk about the rights of Punjab.
Don’t test Punjabis, contest elections from Rajasthan
I want to tell the Governor not to test the spirit and patience of Punjabis. The governor said that he is from Nagpur. When he is from Nagpur, what else can I say? I will tell the governor that he is from Rajasthan. Later went to Nagpur. I would say that there are elections in Rajasthan. The Governor should contest the election with the BJP as the face of the Chief Minister there. Then keep ordering there.
To topple the government is unconstitutional
I will reply to all the letters to the governor, but to say that I will topple the government is unconstitutional. The same thing is happening in Bengal and Delhi. Those from Tamil Nadu and Telangana are also in trouble. This is the agenda of BJP. If you don’t win then buy people, if you can’t then bring ordinance. If you cannot take away the powers, then get the cards drawn.
Haryana governor issues notice to CM on Nuh violence
Let me remind the governor to ask the governor of the adjacent state Haryana whether he sent any notice to Khattar (CM Manohar Lal Khattar)? What happened in Nuh? Where there was a fight between 2 communities. Cars were blown up. Curfew had to be imposed. Still the tension remains. Has the Governor of Haryana written any letter? Not because the government there belongs to those in the central government.
Notice issued in Manipur and UP?
You are talking about law and order here, what happened in Manipur? Does the constitution not apply there? You are crying out for the constitution in Punjab. People are shot openly in Uttar Pradesh. The Governor of UP has the guts to issue a notice to Yogi (CM Yogi Adityanath) and ask him how is the law and order?
Governor warns of President’s rule in Punjab: Wrote to CM – You are not giving information, I have no option but to take action
Punjab Governor BL Purohit has warned of President’s rule in the state. He wrote a letter to Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and said – the information sought by the Raj Bhavan is not being given by the government. This is an insult to the constitutional duty. On this conduct of the Chief Minister, he is left with no other option but to take action as per law and constitution.
War broke out between Punjab CM-Governor: Purohit said- Bhagwant Mann made fun of me, now I will not use government helicopter
In Punjab, once again the Governor and the Chief Minister are at loggerheads. In the Vidhan Sabha, the Chief Minister taunted Governor Banwari Lal Purohit regarding the helicopter and the university. To which the Governor has replied to the Chief Minister on Wednesday. He said that a Chief Minister is making fun of the Governor by violating all kinds of dignity and traditions.
