Amidst reports that former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh might be made the West Bengal Governor, the Left Front today protested in the Assembly and staged a walk-out.
Leader of Opposition Surya Kanta Mishra said that no question by the Opposition on the matter was allowed in the Assembly during the morning session, which prompted the Left Front MLAs to walk out.
"The tradition at the Centre is to have a Governor who will listen to their political masters in Delhi. Now they are trying to make Kalyan Singh as Governor who has the scar of Babri Masjid demolition on him," Mishra told reporters outside the House.
He said the state government must make its stand clear on this topic.
