Mamata Banerjee defeated BJP’s candidate Priyanka Tibrewal by a margin of 58000 votes in the assembly by-election to Bhawanipur seat in West Bengal on 30 September.
After the victory of Mamta Banerjee in the Bhawanipur seat of West Bengal, the political tussle between the state’s Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and the state’s CM Mamta Banerjee is seen again. Let us inform that the swearing-in ceremony of Mamata Banerjee as MLA has been postponed by the Governor. In fact, Mamata Banerjee is to take oath as an MLA on 7 October.
Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar was also invited to attend the oath ceremony, but the Governor replied to the invitation that first the gazette should be issued and then he would take a decision on it. In such a situation, political tension can be seen again between the Governor and the CM of the state. Let us tell you that the intention of the speaker was that the three Trinamool members who won the by-election should be administered the oath of assembly membership soon. But the governor has turned it down.
In this regard, the Speaker’s office had written a letter to the Governor and demanded that the oath be administered soon. In response to this letter, it has been said on behalf of the Raj Bhavan that, only after the notification of the results of the election, the decision about the confirmation of oath or membership of the newly elected MLAs will be taken. The Governor also said that the request made by the government and the Speaker’s office regarding the oath is based on the wrong interpretation of the law.
