West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said she has blocked Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Twitter, “disturbed” by his regular posts against her government on the microblogging platform.
Banerjee also said that Dhankhar has threatened the chief secretary and the director general of police on several occasions.
Addressing a press meet here, the CM said she has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi several times, seeking the removal of Dhankhar.
“However, no action has been taken so far,” Banerjee, who shares an acrimonious relationship with the governor, said.
Also Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien on Monday said that he will block West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Twitter.
His statement came hours after his party’s supremo and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee told a press conference that she had blocked the governor on the social media site.
