Uncle ji...find another job: TMC MP Mohua Maitra lashes out at Governor

Moitra’s comments came after Dhankhar tweeted about summoning Chief Secretary HK Dwivedi.

A war of words has ensued between Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra and West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar after the legislator alleged that people related to the governor were appointed as officers on special duty in the Raj Bhavan.

Moitra’s comments came after Dhankhar tweeted on Sunday about summoning Chief Secretary HK Dwivedi to brief him about the steps taken to contain the post-poll violence in the state. Dhankhar called the situation an “extremely alarming law and order” scenario.

“Uncleji [Dhnkhar] only way WB’s ‘grim situation’ will improve is if you move your sorry self back to Delhi & find another job,” Moitra replied to the governor’s tweet.

Continuing to refer to Dhankhar as “uncle ji”, Moitra tweeted out a list of officers on special duty in Raj Bhavan, showing how the officials were allegedly related to the governor.

“And Uncleji – while you’re at it – take the extended family you’ve settled in at WB RajBhavan with you,” she tweeted.

She further told the media that she has the “democratic right” to ask questions to the governor. “He keeps asking questions to the state government,” she said. “I would rather request him to look into the mirror. He has brought his entire village and entire clan to Raj Bhawan.”
