"For the past one and a half years the Governor has abandoned governance. All we are hearing from him are very inciting and very provocative and not the kind of statement a chief executive or a statesman is expected to be making.
I have heard him say, 'I will deal with him', 'I will crush him', 'We will deal with them'. Such statements are deplorable. And when you also realize who is he talking about, most of the time, it is worrisome. He is talking about somebody who was the immediate past governor of the state.
Somebody who, more or less did everything to get him elected, and more importantly, somebody who is the National Chairman of the party you belong to. For crying out loud, you must respect your chair. That goes without saying.
Whoever is your party chairman is first among equals. You owe him that respect. For those of us who have been playing politics for a long time, when the local government or state chairman of the party comes in, we stand up. It shows respect for the party.
So when you hear a governor getting so aggressive and begins to use the kind of words you hear on the street, it becomes alarming. And the level they have gotten to now, is very disturbing!".
