West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar visited Nandigram, the battleground of CM Mamata Banerjee and Leader of the Opposition Subhendu Adhikari. He was investigating the ground reality check for the allegedly post-poll violence.
He was shocked and expressed his anguish over the people’s misery and condition of law and order. He said no administration or police came to some of the locations despite a repeated report of violence. He also requested CM and her administration to act with constitutional authority to restore peace.
He also said he is very sorry to see that even media did not come and highlighted all the events which should have been reported as a duty of the fourth pillar of democracy. He said when media fails to report truth it is imperative that society is not in the right state.
He also reminded that media must work as the third eye for the people and administration.
Earlier CM Mamata Banerjee and her party said Governor is outstretching his space and interference in the administration outside his constitutional role is unfortunate.
Peace and fight against the pandemic is the need of the hour and we must work together to achieve a healthy, peaceful life for all the citizens, this is our prayer to all concerned.
