AGARTALA, Jan 26 (TIWN): Even though Melarmath Party Office had debated on a Governor's power whether above CM's power or not after, media and opposition parties brought allegation against the Left Govt that Tripura is undergoing a 'Constitutional Crisis', but today after almost above a month Tathagata Roy replied the ruling party of Tripura.

The debates raised after following Chief Secretary Sanjeev Ranjan and DGP A K Shukla's rejection to meet the Governor at Raj Bhawan on Chief Minister Manik Sarkar's order as Governor was to ask the officers about Tripura's law and order. 

On 69th Republic Day after above 3 years of ruling as the Governor of Tripura, Tathagata Roy finally has broken his silence hitting the ruling Govt of Tripura and it's IAS, IPS Officers on Republic Day.

On that time, CPI-M Party Office said that as the President can't call a Central Minister without Prime Minister's permission, in the same manner, a Governor can't call Govt employees without CM's permission.

Governor didn't say anything against CPI-M's comments till day. Opposition demanded press conferences from Chief Secretary giving clarification, but they didn't clarify the issue. 

But today when due to Election declaration, Manik Sarkar is no more controlling the power, Tathagata Roy said, "It's true according to constitution that Chief Minister and the Govt of Tripura are all in all to control the power and law and order. But, when the State Govt fails to take control on the law and order, the Governor himself has to take the role and can use his power. If Governor asks the State Govt about any data, the State Govt is bound to deliver him or it's a Constitutional Crisis situation". 

However, Governor didn't attack the State Govt directly much, rather he criticized the critics, who said 'A Governor has no role to play in a state'.
