People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM), the anti-corruption watchdog turned political party has asked State Governor Kummanam Rajasekharan to leave the State “as there is apprehension” over his alleged anti-secular activities in his home State Kerala.
PRISM on Wednesday wrote to Mizoram Kohran Hruaitute Committee (MKHC), a conglomerate of 13 major churches in Mizoram, all political parties and civil society organisations appealing them to oppose Rajasekharan, “to ensure freedom of religion in the State”. PRISM also asked them to take measures to make the Governor leave Mizoram at the earliest.
In its letter of appeal, PRISM alleged that Rajasekharan is well known for his anti-secularism that goes against the Constitution of India.
Rajasekharan was sworn in as the Governor of Mizoram on Tuesday.
Even as Kummanam Rajasekharan maintained that his role “henceforth will be apolitical”, PRISM felt that appointing Kummanam as the Governor was a political tactic by the BJP.
While some argued that the people of Mizoram were being intolerant to a Hindu leader, some others argued that they were not against Hindus, but against Hindutva.
