Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Saturday hit back at outgoing Governor K N Tripathi for his comment that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s appeasement policy had adversely affected the social harmony of the state.Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee wondered why Tripathi did not say this earlier. Next Governor Jagdeep Dhankar will take oath on July 30. “Wasn’t it an attempt to score brownie points? That’s why we (TMC) had said before that the Raj Bhavan has turned into a BJP party office. This has now been proved to be true,” Chatterjee said in a sharp comment. Tripathi had differences of opinion with Banerjee on several occasions regarding various issues during his five-year tenure in the Raj Bhavan.

Any way this observation by him won’t glorify the chair of the Governor.” Tripathi, who has had several run-ins with the Chief Minister, said Banerjee has the vision and power to implement her decisions but needs to keep a check on her sentiments and exercise restraint.
