Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar said, ‘It is expected that the Chief Minister will take immediate steps to restore law and order. I also hope that my younger sister Chief Minister will take better action on the present situation. You have to rise above partisan interests. I am sure you will write a new governance pattern.
Let me tell you, after the announcement of the election results in Bengal on Sunday, many reports of violence have come out. BJP and TMC have accused each other about this.
