A press communique issued by Raj Bhavan stated, “Raj Bhavan vehemently denies the baseless and false allegation that an invitation has been extended to the Hon’ble Governor for the inauguration of the New Secretariat Building by the State Government and that in spite of the extension of the invitation the Governor didn’t attend the programme.”

It further stated that “Raj Bhavan further makes it clear that no invitation whatsoever has been sent to the Governor inviting her to the inauguration of the new Secretariat building, and this has been the precise and sole reason for her non-attendance at the inauguration of new Secretariat building.”

The BRS party and Raj Bhavan are at loggerheads over several issues including the clearing of a few bills by the Governor’s office. The state government approached the Supreme Court in this regard recently.
