Underlining their “unique position” owing to their vast experience and “prestigious nature” of their post, PM Narendra Modi said Wednesday that Governors can “work as catalytic agents in the states” and can speed up and improve processes “without themselves becoming a part of them”.
The remarks, made during the concluding session of the 47th Governors’ Conference at Rashtrapati Bhavan, assume significance given the fact that they came in the backdrop of the controversy surrounding certain actions of Arunachal Pradesh Governor J P Rajkhowa.

Modi urged all Governors to think about some form of legacy they would leave behind at the end of their terms, as their contribution to the states, the PMO said in a statement.
“The Prime Minister stressed on the importance of cooperative federalism, which he said must be implemented in letter and spirit,” it added. He added that Centre and States must work together as “Team India”.
