West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar met Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday and discussed with him the worrisome situation in the state. During the meeting with Amit Shah, the Governor discussed the law and order situation in Bengal and said that the law and order in the state is at the extreme end of the rock.
The communiqué issued by Raj Bhavan said that the governor was still talking to ministers and bureaucrats through social media. But this is the first time he has officially met Home Minister Amit Shah and informed him about the state of the state. Raj Bhavan said in the statement that the state’s worrisome and dangerously deteriorating law and order situation, targeting political opponents and the highly partisan role of the police were also discussed.
Apart from this, there was a discussion on large scale corruption and nepotism in the distribution of relief after cyclone Amfan. The Governor indicated that Dhankhar indicated that instead of benefiting the needy and entitled persons, attention was paid to the members of the ruling party. The state took no steps to deal with this corruption.
During the meeting with the Home Minister, the Governor also informed about the rising cases and deaths of Corona in Bengal. During this, information was also given about the lack of health facilities for Kovid and non Kovid patients.
Dhankar had tweeted before the meeting, I will discuss with the Union Home Minister this afternoon about the worrisome situation in West Bengal. He had tweeted that the welfare of the people of West Bengal is his priority and all his actions are aimed at reducing the problems of the people of West Bengal.
He had said that he would also discuss the constitutional obligations given to him under Article 159 of the Constitution with the Home Minister. Dhankhar tweeted another, I express full commitment to the people of West Bengal.
