Kolkata: Uncertainties prevail over the speech of Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar during the Special session of West Bengal Legislative Assembly on July 2.

It can be recalled that the draft of his speech that he is supposed to read out, Dhankhar had written a letter to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for clarification over certain parts of his speech.

Though, according to Dhankhar, the Trinamool Congress supremo had called him but the solution wasn’t met in the conversation.

Soon after their conversation, the TMC supremo called Dhankhar to be associated with the Hawala Jain scam leading to further tussle between the Governor and Trinamool Congress.

According to Assembly sources, Dhankhar might speak on his own and would also partly refer to the speech sent to him earlier.

However, the West Bengal state secretariat sources said that the Governor is bound to read the speech sent to him as it was passed by the cabinet.

“West Bengal Governor always goes against the Constitution. The speech sent to him by Nabanna is approved by the cabinet and he should read that speech only,” mentioned the sources.

According to poll analysts, a day before the Assembly session the TMC had played a ‘peace’ tactic by sending West Bengal Education Minister Bratya Basu to meet Dhankhar.

Notably, taking to Twitter Dhankhar on Thursday evening also mentioned that he had met with senior Left Front Leader and advocate Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya and ‘discussed on a host of issues of governance of the Mamata Banerjee government’.
