Outgoing West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi today said CM Mamata Banerjee’s “appeasement policy” is adversely affecting the social harmony of the state.

Tripathi, who has had several run-ins with the Chief Minister during his five-year tenure, said 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.

“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 said. His successor Jagdeep Dhankar will take oath as Governor on July 30.

Asked whether he saw any discrimination in West Bengal, 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 should be improved. “I think a lot of improvement is required in the law and order situation,” he said. — PTI


Her (Banerjee’s) policy of appeasement has the effect of adversely affecting societal harmony... I think she should look at every citizen equally. — KN Tripathi, Outgoing WB Governor
