Bengal Guv slams Speaker Biman Banerjee for administering Sayantika Banerjee, Reyat Hossian's oath

Kolkata/IBNS: Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose Friday slammed the ruling Trinamool Congress and Speaker Biman Banerjee after two of its leaders Sayantika Banerjee and Reyat Hossain Sarkar took oath as MLAs on Friday.


Banerjee and Sarkar won bypolls from the Baranagar and Bhagwangola constituencies, the results of which were declared on June 5.

Their oaths, which had been pending, became the focus of a bitter and prolonged stand-off between the Trinamool and the Governor's office.

The oaths were eventually administered this evening by Bidhan Sabha Speaker Biman Banerjee. After the ceremony, Trinamool legislators raised the 'Jai Bangla' slogan in the House.

Bose has declared that the Speaker had "defied Constitutional prescription" by administering their oaths despite the Governor's office appointing his deputy, Ashish Banerjee to do so.

However, Banerjee declined to do so, pointing out the Speaker had precedence.

Bose said a report will be sent to President Droupadi Murmu "about the Constitutional impropriety of the Speaker in administering the oath to the two newly elected MLAs".

"This Constitutional transgression has been done in spite of the Governor appointing the Deputy Speaker as the person before whom the two newly elected MLAs shall take their oaths."
