‘Pegasus is running from Governor house’: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee launches scathing attack on Jagdeep Dhankhar

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a stinging attack on Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday, alleging that the state’s Pegasus spyware is controlled from Governor House.

Dhankhar’s tweets have “disturbed” the Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo, thus she has blocked him on Twitter.

Mamata told a press conference that the elected state government has turned into “bound labor” for the nominated person.

“He’s not simply offering advise; he’s also attempting to exert influence over the state government’s operations.” I’ve deactivated his Twitter account.

The Governor is in charge of various issues, including RTI, Lokayut, and the separation of Howrah and Bally Municipal, among others,” Mamata stated, apologizing for her actions.

The Chief Minister once again urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remove Dhankhar immediately.

“He is giving pain to the state government. Despite four letters the PM didn’t remove him. I once again urge that the PM should remove him. Rule says that the Governor should work in accordance with the Chief Minister but in case he doesn’t even consult,” further alleged the chief minister.

Taking further potshots at the Governor Dhankhar, Mamata claimed that Pegasus spyware is also run from Governor House.

“If one visits Raj Bhawan they will get to know that calls are being tapped by the Governor.


On one side this snooping is done across the country and on the other side the state governor is also doing the same,” added Mamata.

It can be recalled that on January 25, Dhankhar standing in Assembly had slammed both Mamata Banerjee and Speaker Biman Bandhopadhyay for allegedly not ‘abiding’ to the Constitution. Even on Sunday, Dhankhar claimed that Mamata had pledged not to abide by the Constitution.

Taking to Twitter, Dhankhar said, “Under Article 167 it is the Constitution “duty” of the Chief Minister to furnish such information relating to the administration of the affairs of the State and proposals for legislation as the Governor may call for.”

Meanwhile, the Opposition parties slammed Mamata Banerjee for blocking Dhankhar from Twitter.
