Kolkata: West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar was criticized by TMC and Left Front leaders after he met National Human Rights Commission chairman Arun Mishra.

West Bengal Transport Minister Firhad Hakim said that the Governor needs counseling as he has lost his cool.

“Crossing every limit, the Governor is visiting people in Delhi. He should visit a psychiatrist for mental counseling. There is no incidence of post-poll violence and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee believes in peace,” mentioned Firhad.

Slamming the Governor, senior CPI (M) chairman Biman Bose claimed that the Governor is going against the Constitution.

“Political leaders can visit the National Human Rights Commission chairman but a Governor cannot visit that person to complain about a state. It is against the Constitution and the Governor is not abiding by the it,” claimed the senior politburo member.

Notably, according to Governor House sources, the West Bengal Governor in his complaint letter had mentioned about more than 650 atrocities in West Bengal.

“There are complaints of more than 50 murders, 100 rapes, over 500 people are displaced in other states due to the post-poll violence. This complaint letter written by the Governor will be submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs and will also give a copy to President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” mentioned the sources.

However, till the time of reporting Dhankhar who was scheduled to meet the Union Home Minister today didn’t get the appointment from the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Earlier this day, the West Bengal Governor had also met Union Minister of Culture and Tourism Prahlad Singh Patel and Prahlad Joshi, Union Minister of Coal, Mines and Parliamentary Affairs.
