Kolkata: Is Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar running the family system in Raj Bhavan? On Sunday, Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra tweeted about the ‘OSD’ at the Raj Bhavan. At the same time, Mahua sneered at the governor and wrote, “Only if you go back to Delhi and find another job will the situation in the state improve.” And 24 hours did not pass after that tweet of Mahua. The governor denied the allegations against him.
Mahua tweeted ‘allegations of nepotism’ against Jagdeep Dhankhar. And Dhankhar wrote in a counter tweet, ‘The allegation of Mahua Maitra tweeting about the recruitment of 6 OSDs is completely wrong. Those with OSD are residents of three different states. They are of 4 different colors. And none of them are close to me. Even 4 people are not residents of my state, not even of my caste. ‘
Assertion MahuaMoitra in tweet & Media that six coterminous appointee OSDs in personal staff are relatives is FACTUALLY WRONG. OSDs are from three states and belong to four different castes. None of them is part of close family. Four of them are not from my caste or state.

Not only that, besides dismissing the allegations of nepotism raised against him, Dhankhar has again attacked Mamata Banerjee. In another tweet tagging Mamata, he wrote, ‘The law and order situation in the state is worrisome. And this allegation has been brought to divert attention from that situation. But according to the constitution, I will do what I do for the people of the state.
However, Trinamool MP Mahua did not hesitate to retaliate against the governor. Shortly after Dhankhar’s tweet, he again addressed the Governor on Twitter with a list of all the information including the names of the ‘OSDs’ of the Raj Bhavan. There was a request to inform how those 7 people were appointed in Raj Bhavan. After that, referring to the BJP’s IT cell, Mahua wrote, ‘The BJP’s IT cell will not be able to bring you out of here. It seems that the post of the Vice President of the country has remained elusive.
Asking Uncleji to lay out right here what antecedents of the appointees are & how each one got into Raj Bhavan. Do it NOW. BJP IT Cell can’t get you out of this one Uncleji .. And I don’t think Vice President of India also happening for you https://t.co/CMstjlsG6f
