Kolkata: During his three days visit to national capital Delhi, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Thursday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah to submit a report on post-poll violence in the state.

According to Governor House sources, apart from post-poll violence ways to bring back displaced BJP workers back at their place was also discussed in the meeting.

Notably, slamming the Governor, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that she had written three letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over removal of the Governor but was of no avail.

“The state government is consulted before appointing a governor but it was not done in this case. I had written letters to the PM for his removal but didn’t receive any reply. A child can be coaxed into silence but a grown up man cannot,” stated Mamata.

Slamming the Governor and other BJP leaders for faking ‘post poll violence’ in West Bengal, the Chief Minister said that it is a ‘gimmick’ of BJP.

“Nobody in the state can see violence but only the BJP can. It is their gimmick and nothing else. I believe in peace and West Bengal is peaceful,” mentioned the TMC Supremo.

It is pertinent to mention that the tussle between the ruling Trinamool Congress and the Governor is nothing new as they are in loggerheads since the appointment of Dhankhar in 2019.

West Bengal BJP Chief Dilip Ghosh claimed that the TMC people have mental issues which increase every time they see the Governor.

“The TMC doesn’t have any respect for the Constitution. The Center has appointed the Governor to report on various issues to the Central government and whatever the Governor Dhankhar is doing is right. TMC People have mental issues and they lose it when they see Dhankhar,” added the BJP Chief.
