Mamata Banerjee's ministers want to end governor's post

Kolkata: Sovandeb Chattopadhyay, a minister in the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in West Bengal, wants to end the post of governor of the state. Mamata's minister herself made this suggestion during an event. Sovandeb Chatterjee says the chief justice of the state should take over these responsibilities. Let me tell you that in the past, there have been reports of TMC's differences with former governor and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar. Chattopadhyay , a minister in the Mamata Banerjee government, said he had made such suggestions in the past and several government commissions have also included the suggestion. He saidI think the chief justice of the state should take up the responsibilities of the governor of the state. The Chief Justice can look into the aspects of the law that the Governor takes care of right now. Chatterjee has said that his proposal is not limited to West Bengal alone.'' Shobhandev Chattopadhyay said, This is not just for my state. Since there is a multi-party system in the country, sometimes a particular party is at the Centre and other parties are in power in the state. In such a situation, there are differences between the two parties, which affect development.'' He said I think there is no need to continue these differences. Since the Chief Justice is a non-political person and he knows the law better, he should look after the responsibilities of the Governor.''

Prophet row: SC grants interim relief to Navika Kumar

Crime A bench of Justices Krishna Murari and Hima Kohli issued notices to the Union government, West Bengal government, and others on Kumar's plea seeking quashing of proceedings initiated against her. PTI Facebook The Supreme Court on Monday, August 8, granted interim protection from arrest to Navika Kumar in connection with FIRs lodged against her over controversial remarks made by former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma on Prophet Mohammad during a TV debate moderated by the news anchor. A bench of Justices Krishna Murari and Hima Kohli issued notices to the Union government, West Bengal government, and others on Kumar's plea seeking quashing of proceedings initiated against her. As an interim measure, no coercive action shall be taken against the petitioner pursuant to the impugned FIRs/complaints or future FIRs/ complaints which may be registered with respect to the broadcast of May 26, the bench said. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Kumar, submitted that debate was going on over Gyanvapi mosque and suddenly one of the speakers said something, and then another retorted. Rohatgi stated that the news anchor did not say anything and several FIRs were lodged against her. She, in fact, doused the fire by saying we have to go by the Constitution, Rohatgi submitted before the court. Senior advocate Menaka Guruswamy, appearing for the West Bengal government, said the first FIR was registered in Kolkata and the FIR in Delhi is not connected with this. At this juncture, Rohatgi said, What is the special interest of the State of West Bengal in this matter? The bench then issued a notice in the matter and sought replies in two weeks. Nupur Sharma's remark on the Prophet during a TV debate had triggered protests across the country and drew sharp reactions from many Gulf countries. The BJP subsequently suspended her from the party. The top court had in July granted interim protection from arrest till August 10 to Sharma in connection with the FIRs/complaints filed against her in several States over her remarks on the Prophet made during a TV debate show. It had also protected her from any coercive action in the FIRs/complaints which may be registered or entertained in the future about the May 26 telecast.
