Mamata Banerjee takes oath as the Chief Minister of West Bengal for the third consecutive term.
Mamata Banerjee was sworn in today as Bengal Chief Minister for the third time in the shadow of Covid and post-poll violence in parts of the state.
The oath ceremony took place with Covid protocols in place at the “Throne Room” at the Raj Bhavan.
Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar administered the oath of office and secrecy to the Trinamool Congress chief at Raj Bhavan in a low-key programme due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
She took the oath in the Bengali language.
Apart from senior TMC leaders like Partha Chatterjee and Subrata Mukherjee, poll strategist Prashant Kishor, who played a key role in TMC’s victory, and Banerjee MP nephew Abhishek Banerjee were present.
