Suvendu Adhikari’s Netai visit: West Bengal govt and governor at loggerheads

The West Bengal authorities and the Governor are at loggerheads once more over stopping Leader of Opposition (LoP) Suvendu Adhikari to Netai in Midnapore on January 7. The Governor had requested the Bengal Chief Secretary (CS) to go to him on the problem for dialogue a number of occasions, to which the CS allegedly didn’t reply.

The Governor made a point out within the letter that the Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari was stopped close to Netai from attending the Netai Martyr’s Day programme on January 7.

The Governor requested Chief Secretary H.Okay. Dwivedi on Wednesday to adjust to the directives and clarify his stance in per week. Otherwise, the Governor, mentioned in his letter, that “serious consequences will follow” for “intentional violation of All India Service Rules, 1968.”

“Sequence of events leave no manner of doubt that the defiance and dereliction of duty is extreme at the level of the CS. As a matter of fact this stance has become habitual, unmindful of all lawful objections towards this office or rule of law,” the Governor wrote in his letter.

“In view of the same, the CS is provided a last opportunity to provide his comprehensive response regarding the above mentioned matter at the earliest, in any case not later than seven days from the receipt of this communication, failing which it will be presumed that he is working in complete disregard of the lawful directives of this office and that his actions are deliberate and intentional violation of the All India Service (Conduct) Rules, 1968, as a result of which serious consequences will follow in due course. He is also to render full explanation of his acts of omission in the case all through,” the Governor mentioned within the letter, taking severe reservation on the problem.”

It is pertinent to say that the Governor had requested the CS & DGP on January 8 to transient him on the matter “with a written report on January 10”. “Since both of them indicated that they were “in isolation” a directive was imparted on 10.01.2022 to the CS to ensure the presence of ACS Home and the DGP to ensure the presence of the next senior-most police officer in the meeting to be held on January 10 at 11 a.m…”

However, Dhankhar mentioned in his letter that there was no response and thus he gave contemporary timing on January 12. “Finding no response, they were provided yet another opportunity on 12 January at 11 a.m. to attend the meeting with the undersigned or to depute their senior-most officials, if they continued to be in isolation,” Dhankhar mentioned in his letter right this moment including, “…However, it is disturbing and concerning to note that neither the CS nor the DGP attended the said meeting and ACS Home and police official next to the DGP also failed to attend the said meeting.”

Meanwhile, LoP Suvendu Adhikari met Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar right this moment night. After the assembly, Dhankhar tweeted, “LOP SuvenduWB called on Guv Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar today & demanded thorough probe in criminal diversion of public funds over thousand crores for political purposes by way of sports clubs donations and MAA Canteen.”
