A war of words erupted between West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday after the governor accused the state police of being “politically motivated”, to which Banerjee said some people ” They are ‘defaming’ the police for vested political interests.
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar, raising the issue of “death in custody” of a person, alleged that the “politically motivated” police of the state was interfering in every sphere of governance. The BJP claims that the person was its worker. Dhankhar said in a letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee that the death of Madan Gorai, a resident of Kanakpur village in East Medinipur, is another incident of “inhuman atrocities, harassment and death” in custody.
He said that such incidents are damaging the image of the state. Dhankhar said that it is an open secret that politically motivated police is interfering in every area of governance and it has become a habit of the police. Gorai was arrested on September 26 in Patashpur in East Medinipur in a kidnapping case. The police has said that he was not in judicial custody, but his, while the BJP is saying that he was kept in police custody.
Dhankar wrote in a letter to the Chief Minister, “This is the right time to uphold your constitutional oath, enforce the rule of law, ensure democratic governance in the state and make the police and administration” politically neutral and accountable “. After this, Banerjee said without naming anyone that the state police and administration are working hard day and night to deal with the crisis, but some people are maligning them for political gains.
Banerjee made this remark by explicitly referring to BJP leaders. BJP leaders have alleged that the state police along with the government is trying to suppress the evidence of recent cases of unnatural deaths of saffron party leaders. Banerjee inaugurated several Durga Puja pandals here during the day.
“Some people believe only in blaming and degrading the police force and the state,” he said. Banerjee said, “They are in times of crisis, in the midst of the Kovid-19 global epidemic and also in other times.” Forget the work done by the police… If you despise someone, the same will happen to you.
The Chief Minister said that if someone dies due to TB, then these people will point fingers at law and order in West Bengal. They will say that the death was due to (political) violence. ”He said that such things are being done to gain political benefits.
After meeting Gorai’s family, Dhankhar said that the state police was “playing with fire”. He accused Banerjee of acting as per law and constitution and said that the state police were “like political activists” Can’t work
