Government of Kerala is all set to move to Supreme Court against Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan, for holding sans signing, the bills passed by State Assembly. The bills are the amendments from Lok Ayukta Act, 1999 and University of Kerala Act, 1974. The state government has reached a conclusion that the Governor does not comply with the Section 200 of the Constitution, to move to SC.
In this case, Govt. of Kerala approaches legal luminaries and sheds Rs. 46.9 lakhs for the legal advice. The Govt. is reportedly to have issued an order in this respect. Media reports suggests that a senior lawyer Fali S Nariman is going to be paid Rs.30 lakhs for the legal advice and his junior lawyers Subhash Chandra and Safeer Ahmed to get Rs 9.9 lakhs and Rs.4 lakhs respectively including, Nariman’s Clerk will get Rs. 3 lakhs.
Another ridiculous modus operandi to waste a taxpayer’s hard-earned money!
Now, CPM state secretariat is reportedly to give nod to Govt. of Kerala to amend the University Act for removing Chancellorship from the State Governor. It will be another channel to waste the already dried treasury of the state.
