Kolkata: Making no bones about his strong dismay over the West Bengal Director General of Police’s “don’t care ostrich stance on law and order”, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday reiterated that the state is already a “safe haven to terror, crime and illegal bomb making”.
Taking to his twitter handle, Mr Dhankhar said, “Anguished at DGP @WBPolice ‘don’t care’ OSTRICH STANCE on LAW & ORDER” West Bengal police firmly adheres to the path laid down by law”- State already safe haven to terror, crime, illegal bomb making.”
“Hope he has ‘tryst with reality’ @MamataOfficial from my note when he sees me”, he added.
“@WBPolice @MamataOfficial is threat to human rights, being in support for ruling party harmads unleashing murderous attacks on opposition MPs/MLAs/workers”, the Governor rued.
Accusing the State Government of “turning a Nelson’s eye to one-sided police actions against particular set of people in all communal situations”, Mr Dhankhar termed it as “unacceptable”.
“Police and administration @MamataOfficial in ‘crawl mode’ before political consultants”, he noted.
“Power corridors are infested #MAP. System hijacked to non-state actors”, the Governor said and described “such usurpation and incursion of power” as “unconstitutional and crime”.
“Governance in accordance with constitution shrined”, Mr Dhankhar observed.
It might be mentioned that taking note of NIA’s arrest of six Al Qaeda operatives from Murshidabad district on Saturday, Mr Dhankhar earlier upped the ante against the Mamata Banerjee Government for the “alarming decline” in law and order.
Targetting the DGP, Mr Dhankhar stated, “How far distanced is DGP @WBPolice from reality is cause of worry. His ‘Ostrich Stance’ is very disturbing. Appreciate (the) role of policemen in general-they r (are) working in difficult situations.”
“Problem is with those at helm who r (are) unmindful of conduct and r (are) politically guided,” he stated.
“Police @MamataOfficial busy in carrying out political errands and talking on opposition,” he said.
“Those at helm @WBPolice cannot escape their accountability for this alarming decline in law and order”, he added.
“State has become home to illegal bomb making that has potential to unsettle democracy”, the Governor averred.
