Kerala Governor concludes policy address in Assembly in less than 2 mins

Thiruvananthapuram:  Amidst the ongoing tension between the ruling Left front in the state and Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan, he on Thursday quickly concluded the government’s policy address in the Assembly by only reading out its last paragraph.

Khan, who reached the Assembly at 9 am, concluded the policy address before 9.02 am and left the House by 9.04.

He began the address by greeting everyone in the House and then said, “I will now read the last para.”

Khan and the Left government have been at loggerheads over several issues, primarily about the functioning of universities in the state and his non-signing of certain bills passed by the Assembly.
