West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has reached Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence. Let us inform you that Dhankhar on Friday changed the schedule of his return from Delhi to Kolkata to discuss with the Union Home Minister the law and order situation in the state. He will return to Bengal today. The Governor has expressed concern over the incidents of political violence in West Bengal in the last few weeks.


Dhankhar had earlier met President Ram Nath Kovind and Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday. If sources are to be believed, he has submitted a report on the current law and order situation in Bengal to the President and the Home Minister and requested them to intervene. Dhankhar had also met Bengal Congress President Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury in the capital on Thursday. The Governor also met the Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Justice Arun Kumar Mishra, on Wednesday.


Dhankhar had reached Delhi on Tuesday. A day before his departure from Kolkata, a delegation of BJP MLAs submitted a report to him on the poor law and order situation in the state. After this, the Governor had said in a press conference that democracy is counting its last breaths in Bengal. Before leaving for Delhi, he had also written a strong letter to the Chief Minister and questioned his silence on the post-poll violence. He shared this letter on Twitter. His move was criticized by the state home department as a violation of norms.
