KOLKATA: Expressing pain over West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's remark that the opposition parties were behaving like 'vultures waiting for the dead', Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, here on Thursday, asked her to shun 'petty politicking'.
"Appeal all parties to be in sync in combating Covid-19. Pained @MamataOfficial opposition behaving like 'vultures waiting for the dead'. We are in 'roof falling' situation and must shun petty politicking," Dhankhar tweeted.

"Concerned @MamataOfficial warning to media 'behave properly' have noticed, felt muzzling and control of media by varied means. Why put media in fear?
