He said the state was facing a severe crisis due to the Covid-19 epidemic and retributive violence. The Bengal governor said that he has never seen such post-election violence. And it is high time that Didi has taken over the issue as millions of people are suffering. He toured Nandigram on Saturday. He spoke to a news agency ANI on the occasion.
The Governor described the situation in Bengal as like sitting on a volcano and many people are forced to leave their houses. And the people have been looting followed by retribution that leads to all sorts of indignities, killings, rapes etc., And also said that it is not the situation to be a sleepover when the state is in a horrible situation.
