West Bengal: Mamata Banerjee to replace Governor as Chancellor of state-run universities, assembly passes bill

The West Bengal assembly on Monday passed a bill that sought to replace Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as the chancellor of all state-run universities, amid opposition by the BJP legislators. State education minister Bratya Basu, after introducing The West Bengal University Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2022 in the House, said there was “nothing wrong” in chief minister taking over as the chancellor.
