Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) president Thol. Thirumavalavan said his party would boycott ‘At Home’ Republic Day reception at the Raj Bhavan, which would be hosted by Governor R.N. Ravi.
In a statement on Tuesday, he said an invitation had been received by his party’s MPs and MLAs. However, there are questions over whether the Governor is functioning as per the norms prescribed by the Constitution.
The Governor’s functioning has been contradictory to the norms, and condemning this, the VCK is boycotting the ‘At Home’ Reception, he said.
Mr. Thirumavalavan urged the Centre to recall Mr. Ravi and appoint someone who would maintain cordial relations with the State government.
