It’s CM vs. Governor in Bengal; ‘Shocked & Fabricated’ content posted
Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar took a drastic step when he chose to post a scathing letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Twitter. The move has caused a strict reaction from the party member on Tuesday. In the letter, Mr. Dhankar has criticized the Chief Minister for her way of handling the post-poll violence in the state. The home department then released a series of tweets in which the letter was termed as fabricated and the release of the letter to the public was criticized and termed as abrupt.
"The communication format is violative of all established norms. The letter has been written to Hon'ble Chief Minister & released to public media through tweets simultaneously, which disrupts sanctity of such communications," a tweet read.
The unusual step of going public in this manner abruptly and unilaterally has shocked the Government of West Bengal all the more because the contents are fabricated, it further read.
As per the state government the post-poll violence was ‘somewhat unabated’ and was at the time when the election commission was responsible to maintain law and order.
The Police was directed to take strict action against the anti-socials and government “remains committed to maintain the basic fabric of society and to uphold law and order", read another tweet.
Ms. Banerjee said that after she took the oath, it was COVID and handling the current situation was her first priority.
"Your studied silence, coupled with absence of any steps to engage in rehabilitation and compensation to alleviate the unimaginable suffering of people, force an inevitable conclusion that all this is state driven," read another passage from the tweets.
