West Bengal: Adhir downplays meeting Governor

He said this after the Governor meet with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, NHRC chief and Union Coal minister.

Congress West Bengal president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Saturday said not much should be read into his meeting Governor Jagdeep Dhankar recently and wondered why the leading party Trinamool Congress was not approaching President of India for Dhankar's removal instead of only issuing press statements against him.


He said this after the Governor meet with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, NHRC chief and Union Coal minister. This comes also after when TMC attacked Governor over his trip to Delhi to flag the issue of post-poll violence in Bengal.


"I wonder why this TMC-run government is not taking up the issue of his removal with the President of India who appoints the governor. It is pleasure of the President to appoint a governor."


"Why the TMC is merely issuing statements for the governor's removal?" he said.


Chowdhury, who is also Congress leader in Lok Sabha, added the state government should ensure there is no violence after the state polls are over and none should be attacked in vengence.
