Bangalore: Amid controversy over the
Governor issuing notices to Karnataka ministers and summoning
them for a hearing, Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily Sunday said a Governor has powers to seek clarifications as per the
Constitution.

"The Governor (H L Bhardwaj) has only asked some
questions that could have been simply clarified. Such powers
have been vested with him as per the Constitution", he said
during a function.

He was referring to Karnataka Minister G Janaradhana
Reddy, who questioned Bhardwaj`s constitutional authority in
summoning him and two other ministers on a petition, seeking
their disqualification from the House.

He pointed out that Bhardwaj, a former law minister, was
a legal luminary and well acquainted with laws and
constitutional provisions.

Alluding to Reddy`s statements, he said the remarks
against the Governor could be construed as
anti-constitutional.
