The Governor of Karnataka HR Bhardwaj may be described as one of the most biased public officials the nation has seen. From taking the extreme step of lamblasting the BJP Government in Karnataka in public to calling for consecutive votes of confidence, this Governor has made it amply clear that he intends to remain a Congress stooge.
It is unprecedented in the history of the nation for a Governor to publicly rebuke the Government and then do it all over again, several times, on TV channels. It's not as though the BJP Government is totally innocent, but it is not the Governor's job to catch corruption and malpractices. To add insult to injury, he went on to recommend President's Rule in the State despite the fact that the CM had won the Vote of Confidence. Why? Because the Speaker did not listen to his (unconstitutional and non-binding) advice! If this is not a mockery of the post of Governor, the what is?
Governor's are appointed, not elected. Governments are elected and they carry more public strength than the Governor. It is improper for some appointed Union Government representative to force a state Government to step down just because he comes from the Opposition party. Clearly, HR Bhardwaj has made a mockery of his high post and for this, the Union Government should recall him.
