Governor Of Bengal Chastise Minister For Questioning Wife’s Presence At Events

 New Delhi: Jagdeep Dhankhar West Bengal Governor on Saturday asked Partha Chatterjee Trinamool Congress leader to apologize publicly after he questioned his wife’s presence at public meetings, news agency PTI reported.

Bengal’s education minister Mr. Chatterjee, had said that the presence of Jagdeep Dhankar’s wife Sudesh at government meeting was “unconstitutional”.

Mr. Chatterjee quoted PTI "Is it not unconstitutional to bring a third person to official functions? Did you ever ask the Governor if he thinks he is on a PR exercise with his wife?"

The governor hit back at the Trinamool leader, saying that his wife goes to events only when she is invited. "The honorable minister is terribly wrong. That's a perverted concept by him. He needs to look within. The first lady graces occasions when invited," Mr. Dhankhar said.

"Since I happen to be the lady's husband, I am not saying more. Had it been another woman, I would have reacted far more severely. Our culture doesn't allow it. And I will appeal personally, please think before you speak out. These are dangerous areas. I am sure he will reflect and publicly apologize," Mr. Dhankhar added.

She must learn the sensitive aspect of this." He also drew Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee's attention toward her party leader’s comment and quoted this.

The governor's ties with the Trinamool Congress have not been friendly, especially after his open criticism of the state government as well as Mamata Banerjee. Recently, the two sparred over anti-Citizenship Act protests in the state, with the Governor asking her to "personally update" him on the situation. Mamata Banerjee, in response, told him that briefing him was not her administration's priority. Her protest against the controversial law in December was also considered "unconstitutional" by the Governor.
