Bengaluru: Governor Vajubhai Vala's extended stay beyond reasonable limit surprises citizens


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jun 16: The term of Karnataka governor, Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala, over a year and half back. However, he continues to be in the Raj Bhavan here as no one has been posted in his place so far.

Raj Bhavan happens to be a cosy building with all the amenities, a beautiful garden and many servants. The central government has stayed away from choosing Vala's successor so far.

Vala took over charge of the state in September, 2014. At the end of his term in 2019, no order was issued but there were rumours that his stay would be extended for a year. Even though names of some BJP leaders like former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Uma Bharti and former Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan, cropped up, so far no one has been picked to replace him.

Those visiting the Raj Bhavan claim that the Raj Bhavan now is full of employees speaking Gujarati and Hindi, and as such, it has lost the Kannada atmosphere it is expected to have. It is said that the governor is continuing to serve the state on the basis of the clause in the appointment order which says that his term of office would be until further orders. In this case, no order has been passed to replace him and therefore he continues in this post.

    Who is there to question the ruling government???? the appointment itself explains that as long as the government issue order to replace, Vajubai can continue. Shame on all opposition parties. To be frank these politicians, particularly the opposition parties have put the public/citizens in hardship, by not correcting the mistakes of ruling government in effective manner.

    Thought he is overstaying even after his term is completed. If his appointment order says he continue to remain in the office of the governor till further order from GOI, then how it is called extended stay. So, as long GOI replaces him with a new governor, he will occupy the governor's office and continue to enjoy his stay in that house.

    The Governor’s post has lost any legitimate reason to exist in modern day India. Good for nothing and used purely for political purpose and basically functions as a retirement home to bigwigs for those close to those in power at the Centre. As far as the legitimate constitutional role of Governor is concerned, these can all be performed by the President of the Union. There is legitimacy to the person occupying the Rashtrapati Bhavan. However, the appointments to Raj Bhavans are neither transparent nor it requires legislative approval. And we are still expected to call such person “His Excellency”. Law Commission of India – Are you listening?

    Governor's post is a Constitutional post - Generally Figure head - Attending functions etc - Rarely expected to interfere in a Elected govt -- Day to day affairs --but since decades it has been the norm of interference as a PLIANT governor is deputed by Centre - HOWEVER IT WAS ONLY GOVERNOR WHO WA SENT - NOW FURTHER DETERIORATION OF STAFF - WORKERS etc - influential persons close to Governor accompanying like after Marriage - Brides family sends --

    Typically political parties in power appoint governors whose back they would like too see and those whose political ambitions are somewhat shunted by the appointment. There are many such names including 3 time UP chief Minister ND Tiwari who was caught with *ants down in Raj Bhavan as well as had a lengthy battle in court against his son out of deadlock. The candidature of lovely Pranbda for president also has roots in such political maneuvering. I guess the central Government was hoping to see the back of Yeddy and probably were holding the appointment in case of a unceremonious exit wherein Yeddy could be moved to another state as Governor and that Governor of the state could be moved to Bangalore. Who knows.

    EXTRACT --"Those visiting the Raj Bhavan claim that the Raj Bhavan now is full of employees speaking Gujarati and Hindi, and as such, it has lost the Kannada atmosphere it is expected to have. " Governor's role in Independent India has become like a MAHARAJA's role - Retinue follows - likewise we read about WEST BENGAL - ---- ALL POLITICAL PARTIES because of vindictive politics - fear of losing possibly privileges-- hesitate to question as why Governor interferes in STAFF appointment -
