West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi on Wednesday wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee on his conversation with Mamata Banerjee in the context of communal violence in North 24 Parganas’s Baduria. Banerjee and Tripathi had a face-off yesterday, after which the Chief Minister accused the Governor of ‘insulting’ her.

“He is speaking like a block president of BJP,” Banerjee alleged. The TMC supremo also said that she even thought of quitting office over this “humiliation.” Criticising the governor, TMC spokesperson Derek O’Brien compared the Raj Bhawan to ‘RSS Shaakha.’ He also demanded action against the governor.

However the governor rejected Banerjee’s allegations. The Raj Bhawan’s statement said that Tripathi was surprised at the attitude and language” of the chief minister. Nothing in the talks should have made Banerjee feeling “insulted, threatened or humiliated”, the statement added.

Meanwhile, the BJP State President Dilip Ghosh has demanded President rule in the state alleging disruption of law and order situation in the state. The government today imposed section 144 in the district where clashes broke out on Monday over a controversial facebook post. 300 paramilitary personnel including BSF has already deployed in the area.

    Modi Paid Fake Media said "....The TMC supremo also said that she even thought of quitting office over this “humiliation.” Criticising the governor....." Will anyone believe this fake news? Dear fake media, Do you know TMC supremo Momota Benerjee? Ask Joti Bosu about her. TMC supremo gives fu k to Keshari Nath Tripathi. But I am sure that Mr. Keshari Tripathi have pied in his pant while taking to TMC supremo Momota Benerjee.

        Mamta is an ultra negative person and to expect dignified talk or respect is Allen to her DNA. She is more into out and out Muslim appea t than even the Muslims in her party. Does not deserve CM's chair.

          "The BJP State President Dilip Ghosh has demanded President rule in the state alleging disruption of law and order situation in the state".........It would be more appropriate to declare President's rule for the whole country with abject and uncontrolled onslaught on social and communal disharmony aided and abetted by the ruling government like never before in the country. Add to this, the dictatorial imposition without parliamentary consensus on demonitisation, imposing President's rule on states by design, and swift and unprepared imposition of GST with obnoxious celebration and fanfare.

            Where was the Governor when Darjeeling was burning? Was it less serious than the Facebook induced communal tension?

              The BJP is the one creating situations to distrupt law and order in the state. This is nothing but utter high handedness on the part of these fellows.

                  Like DHAULAGARH , miscreants are spared by Mamara Banerjee just because she needs votes from Muslim to keep CM post at the cost of majority Hindus.
