The People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM), a new political party, on Monday launched a signature campaign to remove newly appointed governor of Mizoram, Kummanam Rajasekharan.
The signature campaign was launched near Vanapa Hall in Aizawl.
PRISM has accused Kummanam Rajasekharan to be an “active politician and a radical Hindu”, and hence unsuited for Mizoram which is Christian majority.
“The new governor of Mizoram has in the past stood for Hindu bigotry and has made the lives of Christians in Kerala miserable, he had violated the constitution of India by trespassing the fundamental concepts of secularism,” Vanlalruata, president of PRSIM was reported as saying by Northeast Now.
Appointment of a “political person” as Governor will impact the Assembly elections in the state slated for later part of this year, PRISM had said earlier, opposing Rajasekharan’s appointment as Governor of Mizoram.
On 29th May, Rajasekharan, former RSS Pracharak and BJP State President of Kerala, was sworn in as Mizoram’s governor. In a tweet, he said that “hence forth my role is apolitical” and he is “Looking forward to working with people from all walks of lives, irrespective of political affiliations”.
