Misuse of State Governors in India

Dr. Meera

Abstract: The gross misuse of the State or Provincial Governor in India by the ruling party at the Centre to achieve its narrow political interests continues to plague the functioning of the Indian Constitution. While pretences about respecting legal and Constitutional provisions are kept, the spirit of the law is sacrificed at the altar of political expediency, often unabashedly, sabotaging the purpose of the Constitution, Article 356 of the Indian Constitution gives the Central Government power to impose Presidents/Governors rule in a State in case there is a perceived Constitutional breakdown there. But this provision has been grossly misused since 1954 to dislodge recalcitrant or inconvenient State Governments run by Opposition parties.
