West Bengal Governor: Mahua Moitra factually wrong; OSDs not part of close family
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar said that the Officers on Special Duty assigned to him are from three states and belong to four different castes.
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar has refuted Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra's claim that six of Jagdeep Dhankhar's officials are related to him.
Rejecting the claim, Governor Dhankar took to Twitter to say that Moitra's claim is factually wrong.
He said that the Officers on Special Duty assigned to him are from three states and belong to four different castes
Governor Dhankar alleged that the accusation was the unfolding of distraction strategy to divert attention from alarming law and order scenario in West Bengal.
Tagging West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the post, Governor Dhankar reiterated that he would continue undeterred and with zeal to serve the people of the state and vindicate his oath of office.
Moitra had on Sunday shared the details of Governor Dhankhar's Officers on Special Duty, and claimed that they were somehow related to him, or from his known circle.
Terming the OSDs as his "extended family", the MP said the removal of the Governor along with his coterie of people can only improve the so-called "grim situation" of the state.
Moitra's tweet came in response to the Governor slamming the state administration for failing to uphold law and order in the state.
Alleging that democratic values were being openly shredded and trampled by ruling party goons, the Governor said that people were living in mortal fear of the police, which is at the feet of ruling party rogue elements.
