Doctors’ Protest Updates: After Mamata extends olive branch, docs refuse to meet

The BJP demanded immediate resignation of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee from her Home and Health portfolios and sought the intervention of Governor KN Tripathi to resolve the impasse in the state’s health sector which continued for the fourth day on Friday.

“The governor should talk to the chief minister immediately and exercise his power as constitutional head of the state to resolve the impasse and restore peace,” senior BJP leader Mukul Roy told reporters after meeting the Tripathi at Raj Bhavan here in the evening.

Roy, who headed the BJP delegation to the governor, said the TMC has unleashed a “reign of terror” in the state, which has resulted in restlessness in all walks of life.

Roy claimed restlessness also prevailed across the state, from Darjeeling to the Jangalmahal and from north Bengal to south Bengal.

“The chief minister should leave her ego and arrogance and resolve the stalemate immediately in the interest of the people. Please don’t complicate the situation further,” Roy said.
