Mamata Banerjee took oath as CM for the third time, governor advises on electoral violence

Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee was sworn in as CM for the third time in a row today after registering a one-sided victory in the West Bengal assembly elections, which means the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government led by Mamata Banerjee has once again been formed in Bengal. The swearing-in ceremony has been kept small due to the crisis of the corona epidemic and its guidelines. Mamata Banerjee has taken oath alone. No minister has taken oath with him.

Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar were seen on the dais. The two folded their hands in front of each other and accepted the greeting. However, shortly thereafter, the governor and CM's statements showed a sharp ness. After taking oath, Mamata Banerjee said her priority would be the war against corona. At the same time, she said that violence will not be tolerated at all and strict action will be taken against those who do so.  After Mamata, Governor Dhankhar also raised the issue of post-election violence.

He described Mamata Banerjee as his younger sister and admonished her on the law and order issue. The governor said the state should be ruled by law and order. Hopefully Mamata will go by the Constitution. Mamata also responded to the governor's remarks. Mamata took a dig at the Election Commission saying that "So far everything was under the Election Commission, the Election Commission had replaced a lot of officers, I have just taken oath, I will make fresh arrangements".
