Great opportunity for West Bengal to engage in image makeover: Governor Dhankhar

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar held a press conference after meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah on January 09.

He said, "2021 is a challenging year for West Bengal as it goes for Assembly polls.

It is a great opportunity for state of West Bengal to engage in makeover of image as unfortunately, so far elections in WB have been plagued with rampant violence, compromising basic rights of voters and role of bureaucracy and police.

It is time for us to set an example by engaging into best practices so that every voter is in a position to freely, fairly express their franchise in a peaceful atmosphere where violence has no role.
