NEW, Jan 29 (TIWN): Two days back when West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar came down heavily on Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee, he also wrote to the Trinamool Congress supremo alleging that the failure of the government to furnish all the documents sought by the Governor indicates that “the state government is unable to function according to the Constitutional provisions”.

In the letter dated January 25 which surfaced on Thursday after the Governor uploaded it on his Twitter handle, Dhankhar called upon Mamata Banerjee to make available at the earliest information regarding Pegasus notification and also relating to Pandemic Purchase Enquiry, Bengal Global Business Summit, Bengal Aerotropolis Project, GTA, MAA Canteen and State Finance Commission.

The Governor said that the information was sought on July 26 last year, but the government has “chosen to maintain a studied non-responsive stance, thereby offering reprieve and cover to law offenders”.

Referring to the many communications from the Raj Bhavan where the Governor sought several pieces of information, Dhankhar reminded the Chief Minister of her Constitutional obligations and said that it was her duty “to furnish such information relating to the administration of the affairs of the state and proposals for legislation as the Governor may call for. No information can be screened from the Governor once he seeks the same. Any failure would indicate that the state government is unable to function according to Constitutional provisions”.
