Governor Dhankhar, who is on a visit to the violence-hit district after the results of the West Bengal elections, said, "The country is facing the challenge of covid on the one hand. West Bengal is facing a double challenge". He said the violence is taking place only on the ground that some people decided to cast their votes of their own accord.
