The governor said he was shocked by incidents of attack following the West Bengal assembly elections, and decided to visit various places affected by the post-poll violence in the interest of people.
The victims complained that they are not being provided with any medical facilities, healthy food or even clean drinking water, it added.

The Trinamool Congress claimed three of its supporters were killed by the BJP, which rejected the allegations, saying the incidents were the result of 'people's resistance'.
