Will apply my mind if anything comes for my approval: Kerala Guv amid tussle with state govt

New Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) Amid the ongoing tussle with the state government over various issues, Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan on Friday asserted that the governor's position is not a rubber stamp and that he will apply his mind when anything comes for his approval.

Khan, who has been serving as the Kerala Governor for three years, also said that he does not believe that all non-BJP states have problems with the respective governors.

"I don't believe that all non-BJP states have problems with the Governor and I also do not believe that with BJP governments, there are no differences of opinion between the government and the Governor. The recent three judgements, one is regarding West Bengal, one is regarding Kerala and one is regarding Gujarat, which has a BJP government. I do not think we should generalise these things. Even in BJP-ruled states, there have been sometimes differences of opinion...," he said.
