Ram Naik is fit case for removal as Governor

FORMER PRESIDENT PEOPLES UNION FOR CIVIL LIBERTIES and former chief justice of Delhi High court RAJINDAR SACHAR said that statement of U.P. Governor Ram Naik is a gratuitous insult not only to the biggest Minority in the country but to overwhelming population of the country who are against creating a religious divide.

In a statement issued here Justice Sachar said, “I am shocked at the constitutional impropriety of Uttar Pradesh Governor Shri Ram Naik statement publically calling for the early construction of Ram Temple. His describing it as a desire by everyone is a crude partisan political statement. Surely he knows that this disruptive action of RSShas already done immense damage to the secular face of India.”

“It is still more shocking to people like us that it should have been spoken at Avadh University named after Dr. Lohia the socialist leader, who throughout fought for communal harmony”, said Justice Sachar.

Constitution-expert Justice Sachar said, “The Governor is expected to have an even handed approach to all the citizens of the State. But when Governor Naik makes a statement which will inevitably cause grave alarm to 18% Minority Population of U.P., I have no doubt that at the minimum it is a fit case where the least that Central Government is expected to do is to transfer him to another state though frankly it is a fit case for removal of the Governor.”
