“Democratic institutions, constitutional values and institutions are being subverted and subjugated in a dangerously premeditated manner, with democratically elected opposition governments in one state after another being toppled by the BJP, using money, intimidation and blatant misuse of constitutional bodies and functionaries,” news agency PTI quoted him as saying.
The Congress leader further alleged that the BJP and its leaders are playing their “dirty game” to topple one of the “most efficient” state governments which has received praises from across the globe for successfully handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is a matter of utmost shame that, in their dirty political game, the BJP is misusing the high constitutional office of the Governor to destabilise the elected governments,” said Venugopal, adding that the Governor in Rajasthan is refusing to call a session of the legislative assembly, despite the constitutionally binding and mandatory advise of the chief minister and his council of ministers.
