The Samajwadi Party on Tuesday slammed the reported move by BJP government to replace some of the Governors appointed during the UPA rule, saying it was start of “saffronisation” of the country which was “dangerous” for democracy.
“Centre was trying saffronise the country by appointing RSS and BJP men as Governors in states. This is dangerous for democracy,” SP National General Secretary Naresh Agarwal said.
The country is not the property of any party. All the parties have right to put forth their views, he said, and alleged that it was a conspiracy against non-BJP governments in states. “The way in which resignations are sought from Governors, pressurising them, is not only start of saffronisation of the country but is also part of a conspiracy against governments of other parties in the states,” he said.
