The governor of a state cannot refer bills passed by the legislature and readopted by it for presidential assent, the Supreme Court ruled on Friday, and asked Tamil Nadu Governor R N Ravi to hold a meeting with Chief Minister M K Stalin in an effort to end the impasse over 10 such pending bills.


Ravi and Stalin have been locked in a war of attrition over numerous issues.

“We would like the governor to resolve the impasse…We will appreciate it if the governor resolves the impasse with the chief minister. I think the governor invites the chief minister and let them sit down and discuss it,” a bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra said.
