There was news in the media that Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami called up the seven governors appointed by the Manmohan Singh government and asked them to resign.
The Congress's senior leader and the present Kerala governor Sheila Dikshit, who has refused to resign may be shifted to some smaller state by the Union Government.
Meanwhile, there are some unconfirmed reports which say that some of the governors are in mood to challenge the Centre's move in court.
It is a matter of record that a President cannot remove the Governor without giving any cogent reason, a SC bench in 2010 opined that the Governor cannot be removed by using the dictatorial and un-ceremonial process. However, it can be used in rarest of the rare cases in certain important and peculiar circumstances.
He cannot be removed simply on the plea that he is not in tune with the Centre and State governments with respect to the policies and ideology of the ruling party. Not even on the excuse that the Central Government doesn’t have faith in him/her.
In such circumstances, the government cannot move against the court directions in this regard as the position is vice-versa.
Frankly speaking, it is better to see all the Governors with one angle as majority of them have maintained the decorum of the distinction conferred upon them. It would be more appropriate, just and reasonable that some honesty and well-being is maintained. But it is also natural that any political party in power, would like to adjust its own loyalists, who have given too much to the party.
Despite, I being a non-believer in God, can only say- God knows the end from the beginning.
