“People are afraid of speaking out their mind in the state but Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee says all is well,” Dhankhar said.

He said that the media outside West Bengal was not aware of the actual situation in the state. “I visited several parts of the state and saw people were migrating to other states. After Independence, I saw such worse condition for the first time in West Bengal,” he said.

He said the media should visit West Bengal and report the ground reality.

“Can a citizen be punished for casting vote or can a woman be raped for that? Unfortunately, it is happening in West Bengal. One can easily understand how human rights are being violated in the state. But, being a custodian of the Constitution of India, I feel it is my duty to protect the rights of citizens,” he said.
