Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Friday had to end his speech midway due to a ruckus in the Assembly by BJP MLAs who showed pictures of post-poll violence in the state and chanted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans.

Notably, the first session of the newly constituted Assembly began Friday as differences between the ruling Trinamool Congress and the BJP grew wider over the post-poll violence.

What Suvendu Adhikari said

The Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly Suvendu Adhikari said that the BJP respects the governor, but the speech that the governor was reading was written by the state government and did not mention anything about the post-poll violence.

“We have won 77 seats. We protested amidst the speech of the Governor because the speech which was written by State Government does not mention anything on post-poll violence. We respect the governor, he protested on post-poll violence. We respect his stand. But the speech that was written was by the cabinet of Mamata, Governor had no say in his speech. We protested with the images of our dead workers,” Adhikari said.

The Governor’s speech Bengal

The speech read out by the governor said, “All incidents of violence happened when law and order were under ECI. After the new government was elected, normalcy was restored.” BJP protested this and stated that it was written by the state government and not the governor, and it doesn’t mention anything about post-poll violence.

Dhankhar was forced to stop less than 10 minutes into his address and was escorted to his vehicle by Speaker Biman Banerjee.
