Bengal Governor KN Tripathi takes U-turn on Mamata's appeasement policy statement
By India.com 28-Jul-2019
In a statement, Govenor Tripathi said, "She is a lady who has risen...Don't create unnecessary controversy...My message to Bengal is...be peaceful, maintain law and order and let Bengal prosper...I've already appealed earlier."
Tripathi, who has had several run-ins with the chief minister during his five-year tenure, had said that Banerjee has the vision and power to implement her decisions but needs to keep a check on her sentiments and exercise restraint.
He said the chief minister should treat every citizen equally without discrimination. "Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has got vision, she has the power to implement her decisions but she should exercise restraint too. She becomes sentimental on occasions, so she has to keep a control on it," Tripathi told PTI while replying to questions on a wide range of issues. His successor Jagdeep Dhankar will take oath as governor on July 30.
"Her (Banerjee's ) policy of appeasement has the effect of adversely affecting societal harmony... I think she should look at every citizen equally. I believe that every citizen of West Bengal should be dealt with equally without discrimination," he said. Asked whether he saw any discrimination in West Bengal, 85-year-old Tripathi said, "Discrimination is apparent. Her (Banerjee) statements show the discrimination". He also expressed concern on violence in the state, saying the law and order situation should be improved.
