Kolkata: West Bengal Left parties alleged Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar acting like a BJP mouthpiece in the State. The Left parties slammed Governor and condemned his partisan role.
Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar’s controversial role and comments have landed the Left on the same side as rival TMC. West Bengal Left Front Chairman Biman Bose on Thursday said he is not a man of the BJP but his function is tantamount to be a man of BJP.
This cannot be the role of a Governor. He is identifying himself as a man of BJP. This is not right. This cannot be the role of a Governor, particularly in West Bengal, he said.
He has echoed the TMC’s criticism on Dhankhar, who has been locked in a long running feud with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over claims and counter claims on post poll violence in Bengal. The TMC has accused the Governor of overstepping his brief and caustically said he should not return to the state.
Governor wrote a letter to the Chief Minister accusing her of silence over violence in the state and not taking steps to rehabilitate the suffering people, before leaving the State on June 15th.
