The friction between West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Tankar is a matter of course.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Blocked Governor Jagdeep Tankar’s Twitter account.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has said that the governor was blackmailed for posting annoying remarks about herself on Twitter.
It’s natural to block people we do not like on social networking sites. It is only natural that people like politicians, movie celebrities and businessmen who do not want to come down to the posts on the social networking site and post annoying posts should block such accounts. But what does it mean for a governor and a prime minister to work together to block Twitter like this ..?

The friction between West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Tankar is a matter of course. But to take this to the next level, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has created a stir by blocking the governor on Twitter.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee reply regarding this issue
The tussle between West Bengal Governor and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been on the rise since the results of last year’s West Bengal Assembly elections were released. The two have been criticizing and talking to each other. In that regard, Governor Tankar had released several tweets yesterday (January 30) on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s Memorial Day, referring to the West Bengal Chief Minister.
He had stressed in his tweets that Mamata should behave in the Gandhian way and the two should work together to benefit the state government. Also, I could not see the sacred land of Bengal being soaked in blood (violence) and turned into a laboratory for trampling on human rights. People are saying that the government is becoming the gas chamber of democracy, ”he said.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who blocked Governor Jagdeep Tankar’s Twitter account, told reporters, “I apologize in advance for this. He (Jagdeep Tankar) tweets slanderously about me or my officers every day. Says things that are unconstitutional and unethical. He does not give advice, he says he gives orders.
The elected government has become a bondage. That’s why I blocked him from my Twitter account. I was irritated every day, ”said Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
In response to Mamata, Governor Jagdeep Tanker re-posted on Twitter that under Article 159 of the Constitution, constitutional norms and the rule of law and those in power must ensure that “no one in the state” prevents “true faith and allegiance to the Indian Constitution”.
