    Guwahati : In West Bengal, several families suffering from post-poll violence have taken shelter in Assam. In the same episode, West Bengal Governor JdGIt Dhankhar visited Agomani area of Assam today and met the victims’ families and felicitated them. In the meantime, an elderly man hugged him and cried. He started crying as he narrated the story of violence to the Governor. However, the Governor assured all possible help to the elderly and the affected families. People living in the camp have claimed that they have left their homes in Bengal since the election results were declared on May 2.

    He also alleged that “Trinamool Congress goons” ransacked their houses. The West Bengal Governor travelled from Behar to the camp at Ranapgali by road and met those allegedly affected by the post-election violence. It may be recalled that Governor Jagdeep Dhankar had reached Behar on Thursday to take stock of the situation in the violence, showing him black flags in Sitalkuchi and shouting Go back.  Governor Dhankhar, who is on a visit to the violence-hit district after the elections, said, “The country is facing the challenge of covid on the one hand. West Bengal is facing a double challenge.

    He said the violence is taking place only on the ground that some people decided to cast their votes of their own free will. The governor’s visit has also started. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wrote a letter to Governor JdGIt Dhankhar claiming that her visit to Behar district affected by post-poll violence and visit to Agomani area of Assam violates rules while Dhankhar retorted saying he was discharging his duties under the Constitution. The Assam government has helped everyone after the West Bengal violence.

    Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had claimed that about 1000 BJP workers along with their families have come to Assam due to violence in Bengal. He said the Assam government has made shelter homes and food arrangements for people migrating from Bengal. The Governor of West Bengal has thanked the Government of Assam. Governor says Assam government has provided medical and full security to all those who reach Assam due to West Bengal violence from a humanitarian point of view. So, he wants to thank the Government of Assam. Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Dr. Hemant Vishwa Sharma has earlier directed the district administration to provide full security and food to all people.
