After the victory of Mamta Banerjee in the by-election in Bhawanipur assembly seat of West Bengal, a political tussle is seen again between the state’s Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and the state’s CM Mamta Banerjee. The Governor has turned down the invitation for the swearing-in ceremony of Mamata Banerjee as an MLA.
Political tussle between Governor and Chief Minister: In fact, Mamta Banerjee is to take oath as an MLA on 7 October after the victory in the by-election in Bhawanipur seat. An ex-gratia letter was sent to Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar for the oath ceremony, but in response from the Raj Bhavan, he said that first the gazette should be issued and then they would decide on the membership of the MLAs. It is believed that political tension can be seen again between the Governor and the CM of the state.
This answer came from Raj Bhavan: Let us tell you that the intention of the speaker was that the three Trinamool members who won the by-election should be administered the oath of assembly membership soon. But the governor has turned it down. In this regard, the Speaker’s office had written a letter to the Governor and demanded that the oath be administered soon.
In response to this letter, it has been said on behalf of the Raj Bhavan that, only after the notification of the results of the election, a decision will be taken regarding the oath or confirmation of the membership of the newly elected MLAs. The Governor also said that the request made by the government and the Speaker’s office regarding the oath is based on the wrong interpretation of the law.
Big victory for Mamta Banerjee: In West Bengal assembly by-elections to Bhawanipur seat held on September 30, Mamata Banerjee defeated BJP’s candidate Priyanka Tibrewal by a margin of 58,000 votes. After this victory, the threat posed to the post of CM of Mamta Banerjee has also been averted. Let us tell you that in the assembly elections held in Bengal this year, Mamata Banerjee lost from Nandigram seat to BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari.
