Advising the West Bengal government, BJP leader Mukul Roy has said that the West Bengal government should apologize to Governor Jagdeep Dhankar. Roy said that the Governor was insulted during the Durga Puja program in Kolkata and in the presence of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Let us tell you that earlier the Governor of West Bengal had said on Tuesday that he is very hurt and disturbed by the behaviour of the state government with him in the Durga Puja program on October 11 and he described it as an 'insult' to himself.
Talking to the media, Roy said, "Note that the Governor is the constitutional head of the state and the way he was treated by the state government is against the class and creed of Bengal. It was also humiliating for the state. So as a normal citizen of the state, I feel that this should not happen and the government should apologize to the Governor". Let us tell you that it is alleged that Dhankar was allegedly sidelined at a Durga Puja program in Kolkata in which Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was also present.
Apart from this, the governor had said that "I felt humiliated during the festival. I am very sad and upset. This is an insult not to me but to the people of West Bengal. He will not be able to digest this insult. Dhankar said that I am a servant of the people of West Bengal. But nothing can come in the way of fulfilling my constitutional duties".
