Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik today sought to know from Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav the reason behind SP MLA Ziauddin Rizvi, who was appointed as minister in June, not taking the oath of office and secrecy till date.

In a letter to Yadav, the Governor asked for the reasons why Rizvi who was appointed as a minister during cabinet expansion in June, has not taken oath, a release from the Raj Bhawan said.

Except Rizvi, four other ministers were administered oath of office and secrecy on June 27 at a function in Raj Bhawan.

Rizwi could not take oath at that time as he was out of the country.

Citing a similar case, Naik also wanted to know as to why Sriprakash Singh, who was appointed a member of Uttar Pradesh Nagarpalika Vittiya Sansadhan Vikas Board in July, had not been administered oath of office.

Three of the four members of the board were sworn-in on July 14. Singh who was present in the function could not take oath due to unavoidable circumstances, the release added.

Naik also drew the Chief Minister’s attention to the fact that the tenure of Board’s chairman, Kapil Dev, has come to an end in July and asked him to take necessary action for making the new appointment at the earliest.

In this connection, letters had earlier been written to the Chief Minister on July 29 and August 16, the release said.
