Governor, in his open letter, also highlighted how police intervention has increased in every sector of government. Further, the Governor has mentioned how he thinks that the state has become a home to illegal bomb-making with a strong influence to disturb and unsettle democracy.

He was very critical about the role of the WB Police force in his letter.

Governor wrote, Recent custodial death of Madan Ghorai alias Kalipada Ghorai of BJP is yet another horrifying instance of dehumanizing torture, assault, and death in custody. Such shameful incidents dotting the State, have assumed horrendous proportions, impeaching the credibility of rule of law and evidence capsizing of administration of the criminal system,”
