    West Bengal violence: TMC MLA removed as in-charge of Basirhat

    Football player-turned-politician Biswas is an MLA from Basirhat Dakshin constituency of West Bengal.

    Violence had erupted between two communities at Baduria in Basirhat sub-division of the distrit early this week over the Facebook post, following which a young man was arrested.

    The incident had triggered an unprecedented spat between Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi. Banerjee had accused the Governor of acting like "a BJP block president" and "threatening" her. The Raj Bhavan voiced surprise over Banerjee's "attitude and language", and said, "the Hon'ble Governor cannot remain a mute spectator to the affairs in the state".
