West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee at a press conference on January 31 said that she blocked Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Twitter.

Explaining her rationale behind the move, Banerjee said Dhankhar would interfere in the state government's policy decisions and threaten everyone frequently, including the chief secretary and the director-general of police.

“I have been forced to block Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Twitter. Every day, he was issuing tweets targeting and threatening govt officials as if we are his bonded labourers,” Mamata said, adding that she felt disturbed by the Bengal Governor’s tweets.

“I apologise for it (blocking Dhankhar) in advance" and added: "He tweets something every day abusing me or my officers and says unconstitutional, unethical things. Besides, he instructs, not advises… I was getting irritated,” she said.
