West Bengal Governor speaks to Mamata Banerjee over Howrah violence

TNI Bureau: Taking a serious note of the clashes, which took part in various parts of the state during Ram Navami celebration, West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose spoke to Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee over the law and order situation

The Governor following his talk with Union Home Minister Amit Shah had a confidential discussion with the CM to review the situation and has directed the State government to ensure full proof arrangements to maintain law and order effectively.

After his meeting with Mamata, the Governor released a statement. He said, “Those who resort to violence under the illusion that they can hoodwink the people will soon realise they are in a fool’s paradise. There will be effective and concerted action to book the culprits and bring them before the law. Setting fire to public property, that too on the sacred Ram Navami day, is a highly provocative act and will be viewed seriously. Hanuman set fire to Lanka to uphold Dharma. Those who resort to fire for Adharma will be made to swallow the fire themselves or those who are mandated to douse the fire, will do it decisively. Bengal stands united against the perpetrators of this heinous crime against humanity. Trouble makers and abettors will be made to realise that they cannot play Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde in Bengal anymore.”
