West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Thakur and Union Home Minister Amit Shah met on Thursday and discussed the law and order situation in the state.

This is the first meeting between the Bengal Governor and the Union Minister, after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee retained power in Bengal for the third time.

"The Governor of West Bengal, Shri @jdhankhar1 met Union Home Minister Shri @AmitShah," tweeted the home minister's office.

Sources said the governor briefed the home minister about the prevailing law and order situation in West Bengal.

Dhankhar arrived in the national capital on Tuesday.

A day before his departure from Kolkata, a delegation of BJP MLAs petitioned him on the alleged deterioration of law and order in the state.

Dhankhar also wrote a letter to the chief minister accusing her of being silent over post-poll violence in the state and not taking steps to rehabilitate the suffering people.

He shared the letter on Twitter but the state home department criticised the move claiming that it was violative of all established norms.
