Mamata blocks WB Governor on Twitter; watch Dhankar's tweet in response

A day earlier, the Governor had reportedly said that Bengal was becoming a "gas chamber for democracy".

Marking a fresh escalation in the tussle between West Bengal's Chief Minister and Governor, Mamata Banerjee claimed to have blocked Jagdeep Dhankar on Twitter.

Addressing a press conference, Banerjee accused Governor Dhankar of abusing government officials on Twitter. The CM alleged that the elected government was being turned into "bonded labour". She said she was getting irritated, and so blocked Dhankar on Twitter.

Following Banerjee's pronouncement, Dhankar took a dig at her by claiming that as Governor, he's mandated by law to ensure that no one "blocks" Constitutional norms.

A day earlier, the Governor had reportedly said that Bengal was becoming a "gas chamber for democracy". Dhankar had made the remarks while attending an event to mark the 74th death anniversary of the father of the nation, MK Gandhi. The Governor reportedly said that Bengal was getting drenched in blood due to violence, and becoming a laboratory for trampling of human rights. He also asked Banerjee to engage with him, instead of being confrontational.

Banerjee and Dhankar have had an acrimonious relationship since the latter's appointment in 2019. While the Trinamool Congress administration has accused the Governor of trying to interfere and block government work, Dhankar has claimed to be upholding Constitutional principles.
