Vaiko wants TN Governor RN Ravi removed

MDMK leader Vaiko on Sunday called upon the removal of Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi from the post for making political comments. In a statement on Sunday, Vaiko said that the Governor's inaugural address at the South Indian Vice-Chancellors conference, where he said that India was not a "contractual union" unlike the US but an "organic one" was highly deplorable.

Contending that the Governor had exceeded his brief, Vaiko said: "The Governor has gone beyond his powers making such statements and spoke about political views that are highly condemnable." "The Governor was putting across the political viewpoint of the RSS and Sangh Parivar and his big bosses in New Delhi."
