Telangana Chief Minister is on collusion course on Governor powers

August 9, 2014

‘The Centre’s move is undemocratic and unconstitutional. It cannot usurp powers of a democratically elected government’, says K Chandrasekhara Rao, Chief Minister of Telangana State.

The Chief Minister after receipt of a letter form the Union Home Ministry that Governor would be vested with powers of law and order over Hyderabad, Chandrasekhara Rao will be convening a conference of all Chief Ministers of all States to expose Narendra Modi’s fascist actions. He made it clear that Telangana State would not honor the directions of the Centre.

The Centre wrote to the State Government proposing amendments to the existing business rules under section VIII(A) of the AP State Reorganization Act, 2014 vesting the Governor with the powers to deal with law and order in the State Capital. Under this, the Common Police Board comprising of Hyderabad and Cyberabad police Commissionerates will report directly to the Governor and to the State Government and he will have the powers to review investigation of any case within the two commissionerates. The Government will have powers to appoint or transfer police officials within the jurisdiction of the board. While the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Nara Chandrababu Naidu welcomed the decision which was otherwise by the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao.
