Speculation has started in the political arena surrounding the governor’s month-long visit to North Bengal. Political experts claim that the return of Bimal Gurung could change the political equation in the mountains. People are guessing that the governor's visit to Darjeeling is to understand the political equations.

Recently, the CPI(M) strongly criticized Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar for uploading pictures of ailing Buddhadeb Bhattacharya on social media. The name of the governor was included in various issues of West Bengal. Jagdeep Dhankar has repeatedly attacked Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with his words. The governor was called a locust a few days ago, which caused a stir in the political arena. One of the posters has a locust written next to the governor's name. The poster even referred to him as a BJP supporter.
