Nandigram violence: Coming down heavily on Mamata Banerjee on the ongoing violence in Nandigram over the killing of an elderly woman in Purba Medinipur district, West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose directed the Chief Minister to take immediate action and submit an action taken report to him. The governor expressed strong disapproval of what he termed state government-sponsored violence in Nandigram and stressed that any constitutional violations would be taken seriously, with appropriate actions to follow. The communication was sent to the state secretariat on Thursday evening.

 
In an official communication, Bose "cautioned" Banerjee to end what he described as a "blood bath" and ensure all necessary actions are taken within the parameters of the Model Code of Conduct (MCC).

"He directed Banerjee to take immediate action and send an action taken report to him immediately as she is mandated to do under Article 167 of the Constitution of India. Any violation of the Constitution will be viewed seriously and appropriate action will be taken. The CM should take effective action within the parameters of the Model Code of Conduct (MCC)," the source added.

As part of the protest, BJP workers burned tyres, blocked roads, and closed shops in Nandigram on Thursday, alleging that TMC-backed criminals were responsible for the killing of Rathibala Arhi, a saffron party worker in Sonachura village.
