Infighting on a government plane in Maharashtra

There has been an uproar over the landing of Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari by a government plane in Maharashtra. Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, who arrived at the airport to go to Dehradun, faced an uncomfortable situation on Thursday.

 The governor, who had boarded the plane, was hold at the last moment that the Uddhav Thackeray government has not given permission to fly the plane while the Governor's office has been told that the approval was sought from the government 9 days ago. Shiv Sena has said that the Governor was not going to any government program, so he was not approved. At the same time, BJP and MNS have surrounded the Uddhav Thackeray government calling it an insult to the Governor.

A statement issued by the Maharashtra Governor's office said, "Today Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari reached Mumbai Airport and boarded a government plane. After this, the Governor was told that permission has not been given to use the aircraft. After this a ticket was immediately booked in a commercial flight and he left for Dehradun."

It has also been told by the Governor that even after seeking approval 9 days ago, the information was given to the Governor after boarding the aircraft. The Governor's office said in a statement, "As part of the preparations for the tour, the Governor's Secretariat had sought approval from the Government of Mahaashtra on february 2, 2021 for use of the government aircraft. The Chief Minister's office was also informed about this.

Shiv Sena defend like this

Sanjay Raut defended the government over the matter, saying , "The entire Maharashtra government and the Chief Minister respect the Governor. As far as I  know, h was going to Chamoli. While in a constitutional post, one cannot use government aircraft for private travel. If he wants to g on a private journey then he should use private aircraft.

Raut accused the Governor of insulting the cabinet, saying, ''The Governor has withheld 12 names (for nomination in the Legislative Council) for one year, which is illegal, against the Constitution." This is a 10-minute job, open the file and sign it. If you had to sit in a flight for 15 minutes, you feel that it did not go well, it was an insult, but if the cabinet has sent a proposal , then you hold it, it is also an insult to the cabinet."

Opposition ring 

The BJP has lambasted the Uddhav Thakeray government, calling the governor an insult to the landing. Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, "It is unfortunate. The governor is not a common man, he holds a constitutional post. This incident is a black chapter in the state. "Fadnavis described the uddhav government as arrogant," This is childish work. this is a very egoistic government. The post of Governor is more important than who is sitting on it. The government did not deliberately approve to insult him."

MNS leader Bala Nandgaonkar also surrounded the state government, saying ,"Whatever has happened is very bad." Thsi has never happened before in Maharashtra. The post of Governor is constitutional and should be respected. However, at the same time the governor should also respect the state government. Chief Minister and Governor are important positition and both should respect each other.
