Recently, the governor of Tamil Nadu has faced a lot of criticism from the PMK Leader Ramadoss. The founder of Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), Ramadoss on Saturday stated that eliminating the post of Governor will acquire no loss for the society. The PMK leader Ramadoss tweeted the words of DMK founder Arignar Anna, "A goatee (beard) for a goat and a Governor for a state are unnecessary. If removed, there is no sorrow for the goat nor is there a loss for the state," he said.
The leader suggested the quote to show his displeasure over the working of the office of the Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit and the delay in giving assent to the 7.5% quota for government school students clearing NEET. The tweet by the PMK founder comes a day after his criticism over the time taken by the Governor to decide on the quota for government school students. Ramadoss on Friday tweeted, "The state government passed a Bill to provide 7.5% quota for government school students in NEET 32 days back but still the Governor has not given consent for the Bill. The delay is not natural it has been a deliberate one. "
"If the bills passed in the assembly can be stopped by the Governor then where is the respect for the government chosen by the people. We should immediately find the answer to the question of whether the government is by the people? Or the governance of Governor?" he said. The Tamil Nadu assembly passed a Bill to provide a 7.5% reservation for government school students in medical admissions. The bill was on September 15 during the assembly session held amid the pandemic.
