Political furore continues in West Bengal in the lmidst of electoral stirring. The war of words in Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has again intensified. On one hand, the Governor has said that he will not tolerate political violence, while on the other hand Mamata Banerjee attacked the BJP and said that before the elections, external goons are being brought in the state, who are trying to break the peace.
After the incident of finding the body of a BJP worker in Cooch Behar district, the governor said that I have always been telling the state government to keep law and order separate from politics. He said that there are some such officers here, who are really doing this. We should stop political violence.
The governor said that I will do everything using my power to ensure that there is a free and fair election without violence in the state. I do not mean by the results, only to maintain the satisfaction of the law and the voters.
