Bengal Guv CV Ananda Bose files defamation case against Mamata Banerjee for her 'women are scared to visit Raj Bhavan' remark

Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose has filed a defamation case against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over her claims that women are scared to visit Raj Bhavan owing to the activities there, media reports said.

Bose has filed a defamation case against Banerjee and some Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders for similar remarks in Calcutta High Court.

During her administrative meeting, Banerjee on Thursday said, "Women said they are scared to visit Raj Bhavan for the kinds of incidents reported from there."

Her remarks are linked to a case where a contractual employee of Raj Bhavan alleged Governor Bose had molested her. The Kolkata Police started a probe into the allegations.

In this context, two TMC MLA-elects, Sayantika Banerjee and Reyat Houssen Sarkar from Baranagar and Bhagobangola assembly constituencies respectively, have refused to visit Raj Bhavan for the oath-taking ceremony.

They have demanded Governor Bose to reach the assembly and administer their oaths.
