A group of educationalist and intellectuals has come out in support of former Supreme Court judge, AK Ganguly, saying that he was a victim of conspiracy to resign from the post of chairperson of West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC).
In a letter by eminent educationists, Sunanda Sanyal and Jadavpur University professor Ambikesh Mahapatra under the forum of 'Democratic Citizens Forum of West Bengal', they complained that the events leading to Ganguly's resignation had pained them.
We talked to Prof Mahapatra, who supported AK Ganguly. He said, “Justice AK Ganguly, tried his best to uphold the human rights of common men in West Bengal. And I am supporting this leader. Government of West Bengal
severely criticized the chairman of Human Rights Commission AK Ganguly for his reports on violation of human rights. And the West Bengal
government has tried its best to defame him, by different ways.”
He also said that the West Bengal government was against AK Ganguly, and they showcased it several times in public, “Our chief minister Mamata Banerjee, in the assembly of West Bengal, criticized him personally, without taking his name.”
Prof Mahapatra also talked about the blog of the law intern and said, “The law intern posted about the incident in her blog after a lapses of ten and a half month. She wrote in her blog that the incident took place in December 2012 and she posted the blog on 6 November 2013. so, I think their are some loops and holes on the acquisition on AK Ganguly in this case.”
