Jagdeep Dhankhar was rewarded with Vice President post for continuously opposing WB govt: Abhishek Banerjee

Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee on Sunday said that Jagdeep Dhankhar was catapulted to Vice President's office as a reward for continuously opposing the West Bengal government while he was the Governor of the state.
The TMC general secretary was speaking while addressing the protestors, who are on a sit-in protest in front of Raj Bhavan in Kolkata since Thursday.

On day 4 of the protest, the nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, "The previous Governor of West Bengal (Jagdeep Dhankhar) has been rewarded for continuously opposing the West Bengal government, as a reward he was made the Vice President of India."
During the TMC leader also interacted with the beneficiaries of Awas Yojana.

Earlier on Thursday, the party workers organised a 'Raj Bhavan Chalo Abhiyan' in Kolkata.
The TMC leaders during the protest said that the march to the Raj Bhavan had been organized to draw Governor CV Ananda Bose's attention to the plight of the poor people of the state who have been deprived of their rights by the BJP-led central Government.
The protest rally is to raise the demand for Bengal's rightful dues of MGNREGA, said the TMC leaders.

TMC minister Babu Supriyo earlier told ANI that the people of Bengal are with TMC and people over here at the protest are not just TMC workers but the common public of Bengal who have been deprived of their wages under MGNREGA.
