After meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has launched a scathing attack on the Mamata Banerjee government. Talking to the media after meeting the Home Minister, Jagdeep Dhankhar has said that the security system in Bengal is in danger. The governor has said that al-Qaeda is spreading in the state and illegal bomb making is going on.
He said that I want to know what they (administration in the state) are doing? He said that DGP’s position is an open secret. So I say we have a political police. The Governor has said that my heart hurts to ignore my constitutional provisions. A child of Maa Bharti is called an outsider in West Bengal because she does not belong to the state. All of us are children of Mother Bharati and we believe in our unity. He said that no person living in this land can be an outsider.
Talking on the issue of Bengal elections, the Governor said that it is time for us to set an example so that we voters can freely exercise their franchise in a peaceful environment where violence has no role. The governor said that 2021 is a challenging year as there is also assembly election. In such a situation, there is a big opportunity for West Bengal because so far violence has taken place in the elections held in West Bengal.
Before the meeting with the Union Home Minister, on Friday, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar claimed that the whole country is prone to bloodshed and violence in the assembly elections to be held in the state. He asked the police and administration to maintain fairness. Dhankhar said that if public servants get involved in political work, it will be a big blow to the democratic system and there can be no greater challenge for the rule of law.
“There is only one discussion in the country, in which there is apprehension that there will be bloodshed and violence in the elections in West Bengal,” Dhankhar told a press conference during Purulia’s visit. The governor also asked the administration, police and media to create an atmosphere for violence-free assembly elections. This election is to be held in April-May this year.
