Lucknow, August 26: The face-off between the Raj Bhawan and Uttar Pradesh government found echo in the state assembly on Wednesday when Parliamentary Affairs Minister Azam Khan attacked Governor Ram ik for being “biased against the government”. Speaking in the state asseambly, Khan said it was a matter of “great pain” that while the Uttar Pradesh Municipal Corporation Amendment Bill had been passed in both houses, the governor had refused to give his consent to it. The BJP legislators opposed the minister and rued that the governor was being dragged and discussed in the House. The minister, known for his proximity to the Samjwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and his vitriolic comments, however, continued with his barbs and kept up with his tirade against ik. Alleging bias, Khan went on to say that the Raj Bhawan should be “secular” and added that if the governor had any queries on the matter, he should have sent a note to him rather than keep the legislation hanging. Citing rules, leader of the BJP legislature party Suresh Khan retorted by saying that the governor cannot be discussed in the House and it was unbecoming of the minister to attack the governor.
