Hitting out at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, state Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Wednesday said Banerjee referred to her as "tu cheez badi hai mast mast". Taking to Twitter, Dhankhar also attached a clipping of a Bengali daily which reported that the chief minister, while speaking about the governor but without naming him, came out with the first line of the popular song of the 1994 Bollywood movie ''Mohra''.
"... daily on 27/11 carried this story (narrated to me by several others) as regards the Constitution Day at Assembly. Honourable CM for Governor said 'Tu cheez badi hai mast mast'. I refrain from any response given the personal regard for her and the office she holds," he said.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar were involved in a fresh war of words at the Constitution Day programme in the Assembly on Tuesday.
In another tweet on Wednesday afternoon, the governor posted a video of Ms Banerjee talking to reporters after the conclusion of the Constitution Day programme.
In the video, Mamata Banerjee could be seen expressing gratefulness to speakers and guests who took part in the event to mark 70 years of the adoption of the Constitution.
"The video on Constitution Day would leave nothing to the imagination as to what precedence is accorded to the Constitutional Head of State. Time to engage in introspection and not in disinformation," the Governor said in the tweet.
Mr Dhankhar posted another video of the chief minister paying floral tribute to a statue of Dr BR Ambedkar along with former Lok Speaker Meira Kumar, and ex-governors of West Bengal Shyamal Sen, MK Narayanan and others.
"At 3 PM on constitution day Honble CM had involved participation with the dignitaries at the statue of Dr Ambedkar. At 5.30 when I paid flower tributes at the statue of Dr Ambedkar, this involvement was missing," he tweeted.
