The one who creates trouble from “believes.” The standoff between him and the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) in the state has been going on for a long time.

There is not a single person from RSS or BJP who has been appointed by me.
Arif Mohammad Khan told that he is not using his position for politics. Where is the politicization happening? I have been saying this for the last three years, you are saying that I am implementing the agenda of the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh). Give me one name, give just one example, where I have hired anyone belonging to organizations that you people describe as politically troublesome. Like RSS, BJP give one name whose appointment has been done in my name. I will resign. ”He said that if someone does this, then this post can be used politically. “I have not done anything like this nor am I under pressure to do anything like this.”
