Trinamool MLAs: Swearingin impasse of TMC MLAs: West Bengal speaker calls Jagdeep Dhankar, seeks his intervention

1 min read

West Bengal Assembly Speaker Biman Bandyopadhyay has sought the intervention of VicePresident Jagdeep Dhankhar to resolve the standoff over the oathtaking ceremony of the two newlyelected Trinamool MLAs.

Meanwhile, Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose on Friday hit out at CM Mamata Banerjee, saying, “It is expected of public representatives to abide by the Constitution and not generate erroneous and slanderous impressions, obliquely adverse to the Governor, in public mind”. Bose’s statement comes a day after Banerjee said that women were scared to go to the Raj Bhawan and the oathtaking ceremony of the two Trinamool MLAs could not be held after they got elected almost a month back.

“The alibis floated in public domain are untenable,” Bose posted on X. Bose is now following the X Handle route like former Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, to give his statements.”I believe the Governor should think about the matter. I don’ t know why he is doing this. There is no reason for confrontation. This is not a place for confrontation. The Governor is refusing to understand, and he is not abiding by the law and Constitution. I was forced to write to President Droupadi Murmu , seeking her intervention to give him (Governor) direction to administer oath at the assembly or authorise someone else,” Bandyopadhyay said. He added that he had called up Dhankhar and requested him to look into the matter.
