West Bengal CM referred to me as ‘tu cheez badi hai mast mast’, claims WB Governor

WB governor has expressed anguish over CM Mamata Banerjee's behaviour towards him.

After the rift between West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was on public display during an event at the special session of the West Bengal Assembly on Tuesday, the Governor today took to Twitter to criticise Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and posted a series of tweets, including one reportedly referring to him as “Tu cheez badi hai mast mast”.

In a Twitter post, Jagdeep Dhankhar attached a clipping of a Bengali daily named Sungbad Pratidin Daily dated November 27th, which reported that the chief minister Mamata Banerjee, while speaking about the governor, without taking his name, came out with the first line of the popular song of the 1994 Bollywood movie Mohra starring Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon.

The Tweet read: Sungbad Pratidin daily on 27/11 carried this story (narrated to me by several others) as regards the Constitution Day at Assembly. Hon’ble CM for Governor said ‘Tu cheez badi hai mast mast’. I refrain from any response given the personal regard for her and the office she holds.”

On Tuesday, on the occasion of the Constitution Day programme in the state Assembly, the WB Governor and the CM had got involved is a verbal spat all over again, a phenomenon which has become quite a routine in the West Bengal these days.

In another tweet on Wednesday afternoon, the governor posted a video of Banerjee talking to reporters after the conclusion of the Constitution Day programme.

In the footage, Banerjee was seen thanking speakers and guests who took part in the event to mark 70 years of the adoption of the Constitution. While naming all the other dignitaries, she mentioned Dhankhar at the end.

“The video on the Constitution Day would leave nothing to imagination as to what precedence is accorded to the constitutional head of state. Time to engage in introspection and not in disinformation,” Dhankhar said in the tweet.

Dhankhar posted another video of Banerjee paying floral tribute to a statue of Dr BR Ambedkar along with former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, and ex-governors of West Bengal Shyamal Sen, MK Narayanan and others. “At 3 pm on Constitution Day Honble CM had involved participation with the dignitaries at the statue of Dr Ambedkar. At 5.30 when I paid flower tributes at the statue of Dr Ambedkar, this involvement was missing,” he tweeted.

Dhankar’s tweets came after the duo chose to take a dig at each other during a special session of the Assembly on Tuesday. Though the duo were not spotted directly communicating or exchange greetings with each other on that day, the Chief Minister had made veiled attacks at the Governor after he left the venue.

At the programme, the governor claimed that the post of the constitutional head of the state has been “seriously compromised” while Banerjee shot back saying that the post is being “grossly misused”. Banerjee also claimed that Dhankhar is engaging in a spat with her on the direction of the BJP-ruled central government.

From the day Jagdeep Dhankhar has taken up the post of the state Governor, the duo has never shared a very cordial relationship with each other. They have, in fact, on several occasion been in loggerheads with each other.

The differences between the West Bengal CM and the governor have been very public. Expressing anguish over the seating arrangement for him at the Durga Puja carnival hosted by Mamata Banerjee, Dhankhar had said that he felt “humiliated, deeply pained and disturbed” by the treatment meted out to him.

Later, Mamata Banerjee’s refusal to provide the Governor with a helicopter to travel to Farakka in Murshidabad district and Santiniketan in Birbhum district had also been cited as teh cause of a seemingly bitter relationship between the CM and te governor.
