In a quick turn of events, Congress MP K. Muraleedharan who represents the Vadakara constituency has threatened Governor Arif Mohammad Khan to resign from his post or else he cannot walk on the streets.



His threat came in the wake of the Governor's statement that the Kerala Assembly's resolution against the Citizenship Amendment Act(CAA) doesn't have any “legal or constitutional validity”.

 

"This is the second freedom fight. CAA is against the people. It became law only with a mere majority in parliament. Many people have approached the Supreme Court questioning its stability. Actually this law is against democracy. So, the Kerala assembly brought a unanimous resolution on it. In the 140 members assembly, even the one and only BJP member kept mum on this. It means, even this BJP member is against CAA," MP said.

"The Governor says this resolution of assembly is valueless and is under Congress's influence. Kerala Chief Minister has the responsibility to warn the governor as it was done in West Bengal. And if the governor does not resign, he cannot walk through the streets," he added
