BJP leader PJ Thomas alleged that Dikshit is not fit for the post as she faces corruption charges in connection with the 2010 Commonwealth Games scam.

“Former chief minister Sheila Dikshit, who faced corruption charges and was accused of being involved with Suresh Kalmadi in the Commonwealth scam, was made the Governor of Kerala state. She must resign as she is not fit to be Kerala’s Governor and was appointed by the then ruling Congress party,” Thomas said.

“The state BJP unit is now demanding her resignation and she should step down as the BJP government has won with a clear majority and it’s their turn to choose a Governor of their choice,” Thomas added.

Thomas said that the party will continue to protest if the demand was not fulfilled.

The appointment of Sheila Dikshit as Kerala Governor was made by the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government.
