Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin hinted at a possible “convention of Opposition CMs” outside Delhi in the near future after a telephonic conversation with his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee on Sunday.

Stalin said that TMC supremo Mamata dialed the DMK chief today to share her grievances over the Governors of non-BJP ruled states misusing their powers.

“Beloved Didi Mamata Banerjee telephoned me to share her concern and anguish on the Constitutional overstepping and brazen misuse of power by the Governors of non-BJP ruled states. She suggested for a meeting of Opposition CMs,” Stalin tweeted.

“I assured her of DMK’s commitment to uphold State autonomy. Convention of Opposition CMs will soon happen out of Delhi!,” he said.

Earlier Stalin had condemned West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar’s move to prorogue the Assembly session in the state.  He said “the ‘symbolic’ head of the state should be a role model to uphold the constitution. Beauty of democracy lies in extending mutual respect to each other.”

The prolonged bitterness between the West Bengal state government and Governor Jagdeep Dhankar hit a new low when he prorogued the WB Assembly ahead of the crucial budget session scheduled either for late February or early March. The ruling Trinamool Congress party had called the act as “overstepping the constitutional powers”.
