At the swearing-in ceremony, the Governor’s edict pierced Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and she immediately responded to Governor Dhankar saying that violence would not be tolerated.

Mamta Banerjee said that she will restore the old officers to the post today so that the law and order situation can be rectified.

It is believed that today Mamata Banerjee can make a major reshuffle in the police administration and her favorite officers will once again be appointed in big posts. On the other hand, analysts have termed the Governor’s congratulatory message as very important because it is the first time a Governor has heard a newly appointed Chief Minister in a swearing-in ceremony. The relationship between the Chief Minister and the Governor is already very strong and the kind of incident that took place on the first day of the new government suggests that if the situation of law and order does not improve, then this stretch may increase further.
