Here, West Bengal Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee has complained to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla over the “excessive interference” of Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar in matters related to parliamentary democracy and the working of the House. Banerjee complained about Dhankhar during the “All India Speakers Conference” held virtually on Tuesday.
Banerjee told news agency ‘PTI’, “I told the Speaker of the Lok Sabha about the excessive interference of Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar in parliamentary democracy and the working of the Assembly. Despite being passed by the Assembly, many bills are stuck with the Governor as he has not signed them. This is unprecedented in the history of parliamentary democracy in West Bengal. Such a situation has never arisen before.”
Dhankhar has had strained relations with the Trinamool Congress government and is yet to react on the issue. Senior TMC leader and MLA Tapas Roy said, “We have been saying for a long time that the present governor is acting like the mouthpiece of a particular political party. He is not only interfering in the affairs of the state but also maligning the image of the West Bengal government.
