Amid political controversy following the Birbhum violence incident, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday slammed Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, calling it “a laatsahab“who have made negative statements against the country.

Ms Banerjee, who will visit Rampurhat on Thursday, today called the Birbhum incident as “unfortunate” and said that her government would take action “fairly”.

Eight people died on fire in the Rampurhat area after rioters allegedly set fire to houses following the murder of Trinamool Congress leader Bhadu Shaikh.

“The government is ours, we care about the people in our state. We will not want anyone to suffer. The Birbhum, Rampurhat incident is unfortunate. I have sacked OC, SDPO immediately. I will go to Rampurhat tomorrow,” Ms Banerjee said .

Attacking the Governor, the Chief Minister said, “One laatsahab sit here and make a statement whenever the situation in West Bengal is bad. “

This comes after Governor Dhankhar today slammed the Chief Minister over Birbhum’s violence and said that it was time to reconsider the unconstitutional stance of confrontation so that democratic values ​​and human rights are restored and people get respite from “fear” and oppressive suffering.

Mr Dhankhar’s comments came in response to Ms Banerjee’s letter in which he urged the Governor “to refrain from making inappropriate statements and allow the administration to conduct an impartial investigation into Birbhum’s violence.”

The governor alleged that Ms. Banerjee used diversion tactics and labeled her reaction as “a sweeping and inappropriate statement.”

“In the face of such extremes, I cannot ‘play around’ Raj Bhawan and be a dumb spectator. That would be an unforgivable removal of my duty in the constitution,” he said.

“Every time flagging this issue at the end of this leads to the release of your tools against the Governor,” he added.

The Chief Minister further said that such incidents have taken place in Gujarat and Rajasthan as well. “I do not justify the incident in Rampurhat. We will take action fairly,” he added.

DGP Manoj Malaviya said that 11 arrests have been made in the case so far. He further informed that the murder of Bhadu Shaikh was reported on Monday night, an hour after seven of the eight nearby houses had caught fire.

A special investigation team has been formed to investigate the matter. Meanwhile, Opposition Leader in the Suvendu Adhikari State Assembly on Tuesday called for Presidential rule in West Bengal. Furthermore, the BJP has also demanded the resignation of the Chief Minister.
