Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 25
Two Kerala ministers on Friday met Governor Arif Mohammed Khan, a day after the LDF government decided afresh to convene a special Assembly session to discuss and pass a resolution against the three contentious Central agricultural laws, and described their interaction as ‘positive’.
The meeting came even as the government and Left parties continued their attack on the Governor over his earlier decision refusing permission for a special session on December 23, calling it ‘unconstitutional’ and threatening to demand his recall. Law Minister AK Balan and Agriculture Minister VS Sunil Kumar held discussions with Khan for around 35 minutes and later expressed hope the Governor would take “an appropriate decision” on convening the assembly on December 31.
Kumar said there were certain matters suggested by the Governor which needed to be discussed with the Chief Minister. He, however, did not elaborate.
“The meeting turned out to be a positive one. We have discussed all the matters,” Kumar said. — PTI
