Bengal Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee to call on Governor
Dhankhar himself tweeted this earlier today.
West Bengal Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee is expected to call on Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar at Raj Bhawan today. Dhankhar himself posted this from his Twitter account, adding that he himself wanted to meet Banerjee.
The Governor wrote: “West Bengal Legislative Assembly Speaker Shri Biman Banerjee will call on Governor West Bengal Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar at Raj Bhawan Kolkata today at 4 PM. Scheduled interaction is at the initiative of Governor.”
With Bengal’s ruling party on a constant collision course with the Governor, there are now speculations on why Dhankhar wanted to meet Banerjee. In the recent past, Banerjee has accused Dhankhar of not clearing certain state bills, and Dhankhar too has alleged that the Speaker has shown disrespect to the post of the Governor. They are expected to discuss various issues relating to the Assembly.
