  • It is worrisome that the schemes launched by governors who want to do good for the people are being “opposed for political reasons”.
  • The Governor is a bridge and a bridge not only to the central and state governments but also to the people.

Chennai, 12th October 2023 – We as governors can’t sit within our four walls, we can’t just be a rubber stamp, said Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan, the Governor of Telangana and Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry at ABP Network’s “The Southern Rising” Summit. 

At the event, Tamilisai Soundarajan said, “As more talented and dynamic people have been appointed as governors, their function has changed. Can’t sit within four walls, can’t just be a rubber stamp.”

She said, it is worrisome that the schemes launched by governors who want to do good for the people are being “opposed for political reasons”.

She added, “Politicians and state governments should not oppose governors for political purposes. The Governor is a bridge and a bridge not only to the central and state governments but also to the people.”

Soundararajan’s primary goal from the outset has been to act as a catalyst in making resources accessible to the people, emphasizing a humanitarian approach over a political one. As a governor, she engaged with the public by organizing a ‘Mahila Darbar,’ demonstrating a strong connection to the people’s needs. She made it clear that her decisions are rooted in the best interests of the people, as she aims to serve them. She also introduced a redressal mechanism as a ‘sister of Puducherry,’ emphasizing the role of governors as public servants rather than provocateurs.
