| Tuesday | 14th January, 2020
Kolkata: West Bengal Minister Partha Chatterjee has said if necessary, the upcoming Calcutta University convocation will be held without Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar as he has "consistently" made statements targeting the state government.
However, the higher education minister said the final decision will be taken by the varsity as it is an autonomous body.
The Calcutta University convocation is scheduled to be held on January 28.
There were also reports that Dhankhar had sent back a file regarding the Calcutta University to the department recently instead of signing it as chancellor.
The government and the governor were also at loggerheads over certain issues since Dhankhar's visit to the Jadavpur University to 'rescue' Union Minister Babul Supriyo on September 19.
