Kolkata, October 5: Describing the Raj Bhavan as the BJP’s “virtual state headquarters”, West Bengal’s ruling Trimool Congress on Monday accused Governor K.N. Tripathi of “needling” the Mamata Banerjee led state government. “Under Tripathi, Raj Bhawan has become a hotbed of intrigue and virtually the state headquarters of the BJP. Almost every day, party leaders and ideologues seem to meet here to discuss new ways of needling the Mamata Banerjee government,” Trimool spokesperson Derek O’Brien said on a Facebook post. “The latest excuse is the unfortutely and condemble violence, limited to a few pockets, that accompanied municipal polls last week,” said the Rajya Sabha member, a day after Tripathi denouncing the violence surrounding the Oct 3 civic polls, called for the state election commission to initiate action. “The Trimool denounces such incidents. The police are investigating and doing their job. The guilty will be punished. If it is found that a few of the trouble-makers have a link with the ruling party, it will not matter. As I write this, three people have already been arrested. But it is not for the BJP pracharak cum governor to poke his nose and play judge, jury and executioner,” he said. Charging the rendra Modi-led central government of continuing the Congress’ trend of “misusing governors”, O’Brien said in Tripathi, the “BJP has filly found its leader in West Bengal and its face for the 2016 assembly election”. “The active politician who’s going to front for the party and in effect handle its campaign is Kesrith Tripathi,” he said.
