Madhav trespassing into domain of constitutional authorities: NPP

Cautioning the BJP general secretary to stay “within his limits”, Singh said the Constitution cannot be allowed to be held hostage to the “political whims of a particular party”.

A day after BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said his party has decided to continue with the Governor rule in Jammu and Kashmir for some more time, National Panthers Party Thursday accused him of trespassing into the domain of constitutional authorities. 

 “The continuance or revocation of governor rule is the prerogative of constitutional authorities including the President of India and the state governor and it was not for the general secretary of a political party to take a decision on it," NPP chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh said. 

"Such announcements provided yet another example of subversion of the constitution by the BJP… He (Madhav) had no role to play in the conduct of the municipal and panchayat elections or other policy matters of the state which fell within the domain of governor and his team of advisors,” he said.
