Q. The constitution makers failed to oversee the political nature of Governor's office. Critically analyse the statement citing the recent events. A. The office of Governor was envisaged to be a link between the centre and states promoting cooperative federalism. According to constitution, Governor is an agent of the centre and ensures the functioning of states in concordance with constitution. However recent incidents in UK, West bengal, Uttarakhand have highlighted the necessity to revisit the role of Governor. REASONS: > Governor is a political appointee, though the post is a constitutional post. > Interference of centre in the state affairs, due to political differences > Unreasonable grounds for imposing Presidential rule, as in states of UK, Arunachal pradesh. > The reports submitted by Governor are out of judicial preview. The law commission in this regard made few recommendations to make Governor office function as per the spirit of constitution.They are > Governor must be apolitical person, from a different state. > He shall be distinguished person, in public admin. etc. and not a mere arm-chair veteran politician. >The centre shall consult the state govt. before appointing the Governor, for smooth functioning. To sum up, though our forefathers have envisaged Governor to be the guardian of constitution at state level, the socio-political reasons have distorted the credibility of the office. Law commission recommendations can help improve the objectives of the office
