West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, taking her tussle with Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar a step ahead, alleged that the latter was named in the chargesheet of the Jain Hawala case and is 'totally corrupt person'.
"The governor is a totally corrupt person. He was named in the Jain Hawala charge-sheet. He had moved court and got his name removed. But one writ petition is still pending and it has his name," Mamata said on Monday.
The Trinamool Congress supremo added that she had written three letters to the President seeking the removal of the governor.
She was speaking in the backdrop of the Governor's recent demand for a special audit in the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration on charges of corruption.
He made a demand on the day a Bharatiya Janata Party delegation, including the party's Darjeeling MLA, met him in Darjeeling and demanded an audit of the GTA's expenses.
