Beards fly as Governor, CM greets people on Bengali New Year

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday greeted the people of the state on the occasion of Poila Boishakh (Bengali New Year).

Dhankhar in his message, however, indirectly mocked the Trinamool Congress government in the state. He said the Bengali New Year could bring Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s dream “of fearless spirit and high head” to fruition.

“Greetings to all on this auspicious occasion #PoilaBoishakh. May #SubhoNoboBorsho bring you and your family happiness and prosperity! Let the #Gurudev dream of creating a land of Bhayashoonya Chitaa & Uccha Sheer flourish
in West Bengal and everywhere (sic),” Dhankhar said in a tweet.

It was an apparent reference to recent developments in the state which has witnessed a number of violent incidents which are being probed by the CBI.

Poila Boishakh, also known as Bangla Noboborsho, is the first day of the Bengali calendar. It is widely celebrated in West Bengal, Assam and Tripura, as well as neighboring Bangladesh.

CM Banerjee said in a tweet: “Happy New Year 1429. Many greetings and congratulations to all. Stay healthy, stay well, enjoy the days ahead (sic). »

While probing Dhankhar about his tweet on the first day of the Bengali New Year, TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said, “He sees politics in everything. There was a gap in his message. We don’t expect anything better from him.
