‘I NEVER FELT SO HUMILIATED IN MY LIFE ‘ SAYS MAMATA BANNERJEE OVER KESHRI NATH TRIPATHI ISSUE

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in an unprecedented move accused Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi of threatening and insulting her over a phone conversation on Tuesday, on reports of violence due to communal clashes at Basirhat in North 24 Parganas.

Exploding in fury at the state secretariat, Nabanna, she said, “The Governor called on my phone and threatened me. He also insulted me. I never felt so humiliated in my life. I was so deeply hurt that I thought I would quit my post. The Governor was talking like a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Block president. He cannot threaten me.”

Banerjee said, “His post is constitutional. A Governor is appointed by the Centre while the CM is elected by people of the state. I made it clear to him that he cannot talk to me in that tone. I have not become the chief minister with his blessings. We are neither thieves, nor dacoits.”

Banerjee was surprised over a Governor questioning her government’s ability to tackle the law and order situation. She also slammed the BJP and refused to take any questions from journalists.
