The Governor who is accused of being in support of the BJP-led Centre by TMC had surprised the state government by speaking in their tone. The TMC has been protesting against CAA, NRC and NPR along with other political parties that are being vocal on the issue across the nation. While speaking to the media, he went on to say thereafter that he is pro-welfare when it comes to the state and was confident that the TMC government will work in tandem with him.
