Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh seems to be landed in trouble to his comments stating that they are all BJP workers and they want Narendra Modi to return back to power. President Ram Nath Kovind has forwards report about Kalyan Singh to Home Ministry for ‘necessary action’ to be taken.
President wrote to the Home Ministry immediately after he return from foreign tour, following a report received from the Election Commission stating that the Governor had violated the model code of conduct with his comment on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He had said ‘We’re BJP workers and want BJP to emerge victorious. We want that once again Modi ji should become PM on 23rd May’ On Monday, the election commission had concluded that Singh’s remarks in favour of Narendra Modi’s return as the prime minister had violated the model code of conduct.
The last time the Election Commission had taken exception to a sitting Governor’s remarks was in the 1990s when the Himachal Pradesh Governor Gulsher Ahmed reportedly campaigned for his son. Ahmed had to resign from his position as Governor after the Election Commission indicted him.
