Chennai, Nov 3 (IANS)
West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin, and Megastar Rajanikanth were among the celebrities who attended the birthday celebrations of the elder brother of West Bengal Governor, L. Ganeshan.
The birthday function was held at Ram Theater auditorium near Kodambakkam. BJP former national secretary and senior leader from Tamil Nadu,H. Raja also participated in the function.
It may be noted that after the West Bengal Governor, Jagdip Dhankar became the Vice President of the country, the incumbent Manipur Governor, L. Ganeshan was given additional charge of the Governor of West Bengal.
Ever since Ganeshan assumed office, there has been a marked bonhomie with the Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee which was noted with interest by the social and political circles of West Bengal. It may be recalled that Mamata and Jagdip Dhankar were fighting with each other and had been at tender hooks.
The BJP which got a drubbing in the 2021 assembly elections in West Bengal seems to be trying to create an understanding with Mamta who is plagued by the continuous raids by the Enforcement Directorate and the CBI.
However on November 2, Wednesday, immediately after arriving in Chennai, Mamata Banerjee called on the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M.K. Stalin raising political speculations. The Tamil Nadu government is fighting a battle with Governor R.N. Ravi and the DMK has written to all the opposition parties to sign a memorandum to be submitted to the President of the country for recalling the present Governor.
