Derek O’Brien slams Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar
TMC MP Derek O’Brien on Monday (December 29) slammed West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar for accusing the government and criticising the state without any basis.
Derek O’Brien tweeted, “Normally ignore you, but you have crossed the line. Enough. You are nothing but His Master’s Voice! You are a disgrace to the office you hold. Without basis, u criticize & demean Bengal to serve your political masters. U do this while enjoying Bengal’s hospitality. Shame on you.”
The TMC MP alleged that the governor has accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee several times on various issues without confirming the truth of the matter.
Jagdeep Dhankar tweeted, “Alarming reports that De facto boss WB Police Surajit Kar Purakayastha #SSA Mamata Banerjee vigorously engaged in translating politically motivated police actions. Concerned at Field police work of DGP- postings and transfer, investigation usurped by De facto boss Purakayastha.”
In another tweet, the governor wrote, “Such capitulation DGP WB Police and usurpation #SSA Mamata Banerjee sound the death knell of democracy. Such gross violation of the Police Act and constitutional provisions proves the political stance of police and administration that is by law required to be “politically neutrality.”
Derek O’Brien vehemently opposed these tweets and condemned the words of the governor.
