On Monday, the ruling Trinamool Congress attacked Governor Ananda Bose for the statement he made following the attack on the convoy of Union Home Minister Nisith Pramanik on Saturday in Cooch Behar’s Dinhata. This was the first time criticism was made against Bose since he took office as the Governor of Bengal. The Trinamool mouthpiece ‘Jago Bangla’ described Bose’s statement that he wouldn’t “keep silent” as an example of “political partisanship.”
The hostility of the Trinamool Party was a stark contrast to the friendly relationship between Governor Bose and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, which had been demonstrated in public multiple times since Bose began his term in November of last year.
The Trinamool party criticized the Governor for what they saw as his compliance with the BJP’s wishes and disregard for Bengal’s law and order. They mentioned the death of Prem Kumar Rajbanshi, who was fatally shot with 180 pellets by a BSF jawan on December 24, 2022, as an example.
The political party ‘Jago Bangla’ has declared that they will criticize the governor if he acts beyond the limits of his power under the constitution. The editorial, which did not mention the name of the preceding Vice-President, Jagdeep Dhankhar, stated that the governor should take note of whether he will transform the Raj Bhavan into a BJP party office like before and determine his role based on the instructions of Sukanta Majumdar, the president of the Bengal BJP.
Kunal Ghosh, General Secretary of the Trinamool, questioned why the Governor had only spoken to Nisith Pramanik, the Union Minister, rather than talking to other parties involved. He said, “The governor started talking to Union minister Nisith Pramanik. Why didn’t he talk to the other side?”
Hours after state Minister Firhad Hakim stated on Sunday that the Bengal Governor should have trust in the Chief Minister, who has been elected three times by the people of Bengal, the ‘Jago Bangla’ editorial was released. Hakim highlighted the Governor’s education and administrative skills, emphasizing that he should have faith in the Chief Minister.
