“We all have the democratic right to ask him questions. He keeps asking questions to the state government. I would rather request him to look into the mirror. He has brought his entire village and entire clan to Raj Bhavan.”

What triggered TMC MP Mahua Moitra?

The allegations and attack by the TMC MP came after Governor Dhankhar took to Twitter and sought West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s attention towards the post-poll violence that has shook the state.

The governor wrote a letter which read, “There is state of anarchy and lawlessness. All elements of police state are amply reflected. Democratic values are openly shredded and trampled by ruling party harmads. People are in mortal fear of police and that in turn is at the feet of ruling party rogue elements.”

The governor in his tweet also said how he has called upon the newly appointed Chief Secretary of state HK Dwivedi to assess the steps taken to curb the post-poll violence.


After the series of attack launched on West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar took to Twitter and clarified that the document shared by Moitra had information which was factually wrong. Dhankhar further said that the names mentioned in that particular document are not part of his family.

“Assertion @MahuaMoitrain tweet & Media that six coterminous appointee OSDs in personal staff are relatives is FACTUALLY WRONG. OSDs are from three states and belong to four different castes. None of them is part of close family. Four of them are not from my caste or state,” Dhankhar tweeted.

Further, Dhankhar also alleged that the attack on him was a “distraction strategy” to divert the people’s attention from the turbulent law & order situation in the state.
