Dhankhar going to Jadavpur University ‘shocking’: Trinamool

Kolkata, Sep 20 : West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress on Thursday described as “shocking” that Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar visited Jadavpur University “without informing the elected government”.

Trinamool said the Governor disregarded the request from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over the “so called” rescue of BJP leader Babul Supriyo.

Alleging that Dhankhar went to the JU campus “without taking the state government into confidence” to “help” Supriyo, Trinamool secretary general Partha Chatterjee said on the way he had called up the Chief Minister.

“CM requested him several times that the Governor being the constitutional head need not go at this moment. The CM requested him to give the government some time to peacefully solve the issue. But instead of taking the government into confidence, the Governor went there to help the BJP,” Chatterjee said.

“This is most unfortunate and shocking that our Governor, the custodian of the Constitution of the state, without informing the elected government went to the so-called rescue of the BJP leader from Jadavpur University”.

Chatterjee regretted that Supriyo went there to attend the ABVP programme without informing the government.

“Some unfortunate incident happened between BJP students wing and JU students. The state police was waiting outside the university, but were unable to enter in the absence of any communication from the VC,” he said.

Taking a dig at Dhankhar, the Trinamool leader said: “He of course did not offer any comment on the vandalism perpetrated by BJP and ABVP goons in the Jadavpur University campus.”

“We strongly oppose his political views. Neither TMC nor police are involved in the incident. It is between Leftist union students versus BJP,” he said.

“So question of law and order does not arise,” he said.

He said the vandalism perpetrated in Jadavpur University by “BJP goons is a stark reminder” of what happened in the political rally in front of Calcutta University and vandalising of the bust of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar in Vidyasagar College before the Lok Sabha election. We do not have words to condemn such shocking acts of violence and trouble-mongering,” said Chatterjee.

Political Journey:

Tarun Gogoi started his political career as a ward member of the Jorhat Municipality in 1968. In 1971, he was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) in the Lok Sabha and served for six terms till 2001, first from Jorhat and later from Koliabor.

As the leader of the Congress party in Assam for over 50 years, Gogoi was first elected joint secretary of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) in 1976 under Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. He later served as general secretary of the AICC (1985–90) under Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Gogoi served six terms as a Lok Sabha MP from Assam. He first represented Jorhat for three terms between 1971 and 1985. He was later elected from Kaliabor in 1991-96 and then 1998-2002. The Kaliabor seat is currently held by his son Gaurav Gogoi.

He stayed CM from 2001 to 2016, a total of 15 years.

Gogoi, a lawyer by profession, was in court to assist Congress leader P Chidambaram. The last time the former chief minister was in court to argue a case was in 1983. After more than three decades, Gogoi in December attended court proceedings as a lawyer as the Supreme Court took up a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Citizenship Amendment Act. Gogoi had opposed the Citizenship Act, calling it “discriminatory”.

States in the Northeast, especially Assam, witnessed intense protests in the wake of the Citizenship Amendment Act, ever since the Bill was tabled in the Rajya Sabha. Army and paramilitary columns were called in to control the violence.
