Clash between Governor and Chief Minister of West Bengal rises

Clash between Governor and Chief Minister of West Bengal rises

She had said that he was acting like a "BJP block president" and that she even thought of quitting office over this "humiliation".

The CM had an outburst in the media after the telephonic conversation with the governor accusing the latter of threatening her.

Communal violence in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district began after a teenager shared a viral defamatory Facebook post.

Observing that the Governor can not remain a mute spectator to the affairs of the State, the statement said it is "proper for the Hon'ble Governor to bring to the notice of the Hon'ble Chief Minister any serious grievance made by any member of [the] public or any serious event happening in the State". Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is trying to promote harmony but some people are trying to disrupt it.

The Raj Bhavan press release also termed as "baseless" the Chief Minister's allegations against Tripathi, and said these amounted to "insulting and humiliating the Governor and his office".

"He is the ex-speaker of the (UP) assembly".

He accused Mamata Banerjee of charging false allegations on him and blackmailing the people of West Bengal.




A Raj Bhavan statement had yesterday said that the talks between the governor and chief minister "were confidential in nature and none is expected to disclose it".

Mr. Tripathi said he was "surprised at the attitude and language used by the Chief Minister". Alleging that the governor had asked the chief minister to manage her party, he remarked, "This is unprecedented". Has he become the BJP spokesperson?

"The Governor has been apprised of the statement of Partha Chatterjee, Education Minister, and regrets to say that this is an attempt to cover the lapses of the state government and divert the attention from the main issue of law and order. He is the constitutional head".

The Raj Bhavan said the Governor was aware of his constitutional obligations and needed no lesson from anyone on the subject.

"Whenever any such representation is received from anyone, the same is forwarded to the state government for appropriate action", it said.

According to Tripathi, it should not be overlooked that the Governor is appointed by the President on the "recommendation of a democratically elected Union Government". "The teams will also check if these people are misleading locals by spreading rumours about robbery or riot in order to polarise them for their own benefits", she said.
