Governor Dhankhar celebrate Diwali at Mamata's Kali Puja

Updated 28 Oct 2019 02:01 PM

 Leaving aside the serial run-ins with the West Bengal government, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Sunday attended Kali puja celebrations at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's south Kolkata residence, and said he was "glad to be there" and relished "very good" homemade sweets.

There was no trace of any bitterness as Banerjee herself received the Governor, who was accompanied by his wife Sudesh, and introduced him to her family members and ministers present there.

Dhankhar was seen greeting Banerjee's sister-in-laws with folded hands before hugging Education Minister Partha Chatterjee, who had led the Trinamool's verbal assaults against him. Dhankhar had also in the past criticised the functioning of the Education Department.
