Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s remarks came after Dhankhar Maa raised questions about the financial allocation of the canteen. Ma Canteen is a subsidized community canteen facility that the Chief Minister started to provide food to the poor in the event of an epidemic. “I am talking about the state government’s constitutional allocation for the mother canteen,” Dhankhar said. The canteen was launched in mid-February 2021, but the constitutional allocation was made from 1 April.
My responsibility as the constitutional head of state is whether all the rules are being obeyed according to the constitution. No one can stop me from doing this. After being elected unopposed as Trinamool Congress president on Wednesday, Banerjee again launched a scathing attack on the governor, alleging that the files were not released from the palace. Denying the allegations, Dhankhar said there was no credibility in talking about the file. There is no file pending on my desk. If any issue is pending then his government has to answer. But the government has failed to respond. He condemned such baseless allegations on behalf of the Hon’ble Chief Minister.
“I have been insulted, but I want to make it very clear that no one can stop me from following my constitutional path,” Dhankhar said. I am not elected, it is true, but I am bound by the constitution and it is my duty to abide by the constitutional rules. It is my constitutional duty to see that the state is governed by the rule of law and when I take the oath, I will continue to do so.
The governor also slammed the chief minister for comparing him to a horse. In a speech after the organizational election, Banerjee compared them to horses, citing an incident during the Republic Day parade. In fact, on Wednesday, without naming Governor Dhankhar, Mamata Banerjee said that a herd of horses had been sent to Bengal and that I had seen a horse on Republic Day and that he was insulting me day and night.
In this regard, Dhankhar said, it is very unfortunate that he spoke in this way. As the Chief Minister of the state, such language cannot be expected from him. I’ve been in the state for two and a half years and I’ve tweeted over 900, but I’ve never shown disrespect to the CM. I still have a lot of respect for him. Sneering at the bureaucracy, Dhankhar said the state bureaucracy has forgotten the rule of law by which they are governed. They are violating the constitutional rules. There is no rule of law in the state. Here only the rule of the ruler.
