Governor Jagdeep Dhankar: West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has once again expressed his concern over the alleged forced entry of police and Rapid Action Force into the government office of Bharatiya Janata Party leader Shubhendu Adhikari. Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has sought a reply from West Bengal Chief Secretary HK Dwivedi by 11 am tomorrow. Tagging the State Police Chief and Rapid Action Force, including the Chief Secretary, the Governor wrote on social media that, “Forcible entry of the Leader of Opposition of West Bengal Shubhendu Adhikari at his MLA’s office in Nandigram under some political conspiracy by the Police Force and Rapid Action Force. It is a matter of concern.”
Governor called the incident shameful
The Governor further wrote that, “Such an act of police as in the video presented by Leader of Opposition Subhendu Adhikari as evidence, in which it can be clearly seen how an attempt was made to forcibly enter his office. The incident is not only against the Constitution and the rule of law but also clearly shows the continuing political role of the police and administration.

He further wrote that such incidents prove that efforts are being made to forcibly put the opposition leaders, public representatives, MPs and MLAs under house arrest in the state. People holding constitutional posts in the state are not being given due respect. Such incidents do not bode well for democracy and rule of law.
BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari has accused the Mamata Banerjee government of the state that without any prior information, without showing any search warrant, the West Bengal Police forcibly entered her office in Nandigram. The Leader of Opposition has complained to the Governor. On the complaint of Shubhendu, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has summoned the Chief Secretary of the state to report in this matter by 11 am tomorrow.
