In response to the numerous complaints about “criminal intimidation in pre-poll Bengal” that the government has received, a Peace Room or help room has been established in the Raj Bhavan in Kolkata, according to a press release from the governor.

According to the press statement issued on Saturday, The Peace Room will send the issues to the state administration and the State Election Commissioner for necessary action.

In preparation for the panchayat elections, West Bengal Governor C. V. Ananda Bose has continued his field trips to the state’s areas that have experienced violence.

On Saturday, Governor Bose travelled to the violent Canning neighbourhood of West Bengal’s South 24 Parganas district.

Following the visit, he expressed his “deep distress” over the skirmishes between two groups of Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers that had occurred in the area.

“I had personally witnessed what occurred here. It’s a war, so I’ve heard. I’m so upset right now. This circumstance is unacceptable. The average person has rights. At a press conference in Canning, the governor stated, “Many things have been reported here.

He added that he could not allow these things to occur since he is the “custodian of the Constitution.”

“I have an obligation. The Constitution of India is created by us, the people. The Constitution is being guarded by the governor, and I stand up for it. Unfortunately, I have travelled to some areas. I’ve spoken to the victims. I’m going to stand behind the people, he continued.

“I have spoken with the chief secretary and the government. This is Tagore’s Bengal, where people hold their heads high and have no fear in their minds, Bose stated.

In order to evaluate the effects of the violence during the nominations for the panchayat elections on Friday, Governor Bose travelled to Bhangar in South 24 Parganas earlier on June 16.
