It is also my resolve that under no circumstances will I cross the Lakshmana line of the constitution nor allow anyone else to do it. Industries in Bengal are closing down. Female crimes are at a peak. Things are very bad here. The administration has refused to give details of the rape and abduction. We are not being given data of female crime. ‘
Governor Dhankar surrounded the state government on the issue of farmers and said that the farmers of Bengal have lost Rs 10,000 crore because the PM Kisan Nidhi scheme has not been implemented here. I am from a family of farmers myself. In Bengal, Annadata is being kicked on the stomach. The situation in the state is so terrible that people are unable to talk. The people of Bengal have no match with anyone. The people here are very hardworking.
The Governor accused the Chief Minister of not supporting him. He said that Mamta Sarkar does not support me. Talked to Mamata Banerjee several times over the phone, though not as many times as she should have met. I have never been invited to any government program. I have not seen the appearance of any SP and Collector.
