In assembly address, Governor Dhankhar sticks to Didi’s script

Kolkata: West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar stuck to the text of the speech handed to him by the Mamata Banerjee-led Bengal government for the Governor’s address to the State Assembly’s first session of the year. Governor Dhankhar had earlier recommended certain changes to the speech but didn’t press the point after the state government declined to take his suggestion.

Dhankhar did, however, make the point on Thursday that he was well within his rights to suggest changes. When these were turned down by the state government, he stuck to the script given to him. Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar’s address to State Assembly or the one made by the President to joint session of Parliament – reflects the policies and programmes of the government.
