Last month, a reporter asked West Bengal Governor L Ganesan when he would clear the Howrah Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2021, which proposes to carve out the Bally Municipality from the Howrah Municipal Corporation area. The governor had returned the Bill to the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government for reconsideration. The government claims that the Bill was sent back to the governor and is awaiting his assent. So what was the status of the Bill, he was asked.
“My ear is not working,” he replied.
The elevation of former West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar as vice-president has sent many hopes soaring high.
