Mamata Banerjee Government Versus Governor Jagdeep Dhankar: Letter War

INDIA Team Latestly|

Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar's unprecedented move to post a scathing letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Twitter, drew an angry reaction from her government on June 15. The letter had criticised the Chief Minister over her handling of the post-poll violence in the state in very strong terms. In a series of tweets, the state home department said the abrupt, unilateral release of the letter to the public is "shocking" and called its contents fabricated. The state government said the post-poll violence was "somewhat unabated" when the Election Commission was in charge of law & order. The cabinet restored order once the path ceremony was over, it said. The police have been "firmly directed" to take action against all anti-socials and the government "remains committed to maintain the basic fabric of society and to uphold law and order", read another tweet. The Governor, whose friction with the Chief Minister has been regular & public over the last years, had tweeted a copy of his letter to the Chief Minister earlier on June 15.
