As the tension between the governor and state ministry on CAA continues, Kerala Raj Bhavan has saught District Information Officers details of the Ministers’ speech made on the Republic Day. Kerala governor Arif Mohammad Khan today has also asked district information officers to send scanned copies of the newspapers of the minister’s speech.
Though it is a regular practice to seek reports on governor’s speech on various occasions, the move to seek details of speeches made by ministers is considered unusual. Analysts consider this as a smart move by the governor to watch anti-CAA campaign by ministers in the state.
Apparently, District Information Officers are awaiting necessary guidelines from the Public Relations Department on providing the governor with details of speeches.
