Patna: With Bihar awaiting gubernatorial nod to several bills, NDA is mulling raising the issue of the role of governors in Parliament in the coming session, a
senior BJP leader said on Tuesday.

"NDA has decided to bring a resolution during the Parliament session starting on August 1, seeking a debate on the role of governors," Bihar Deputy Chief Minister S K
Modi told reporters here.

NDA MPs from Bihar and other states will put forth their
views on the resolution after a proposal to this effect is
cleared by the Speaker, he said.

If necessary, the constitution should be suitably amended
to make sure that the government at the Centre does not
disturb states ruled by other parties, Modi said.
