Unfazed by criticism, Maha governor meets officials at Nanded

Notwithstanding criticism by the ruling coalition partner NCP that he was overstepping his powers, Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Thursday met officials at Nanded as he started his three-day tour of the Marathwada region.

Later, speaking to reporters, he said he did not hold any "review meeting".

"The Constitution has made me the head of the three development boards. Wherever I go, I call a few officers and have a word with them. Such discussion took place here. Some of the work going on here is good. Improvement is needed on some points and I have told them to carry it out," he said.
