Move to Transfer Sankaranarayanan 'Political Vendetta': Cong

Congress today saw political vendetta in the shifting of Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan, who decided to quit the post instead of joining his new assignment in Mizoram.

"For political vendetta, this government is denigrating the constitutional post of governor. It is not proper to humiliate a person holding a constitutional post," said Congress spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed.

Hitting out at the Narendra Modi government, he said it was making Mizoram some sort of a place for punitive postings and charged that it was an insult to the people of the state.

Sankarnaryanan was transferred to a post which was being held by Kamla Beniwal, who was sacked earlier this month.

A month earlier, Beniwal was posted to Mizoram from Gujarat, where she had some runs-in with Modi when he was the chief minister of the state.

Beniwal, 87, was removed just two months before her tenure was due to end.
