Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee was sworn as the West Bengal Chief Minister for the third time in a row in the shadow of Covid and sporadic post-poll violence in parts of the state.

In her trademark white Sari and shawl, Mamata Banerjee took oath in Bengali. The remaining cabinet and the council of ministers take oath on May 9, the birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore.

The swearing-in ceremony took place with Covid protocols in place at the “Throne Room” at the Raj Bhavan.

Mamata Banerjee achieved a landslide victory in the West Bengal Assembly elections to secure a third straight term. The Trinamool won 213 of 292 seats while its closest rival, BJP, finished with 77 seats.

Post the oath, Mamata Banerjee proceeded towards her office Nabanna, where she was given a guard of honour by the Kolkata Police.

It is learnt that, Mamata will start her new term with a meeting with the top officials on the state’s Covid situation and law and order.

Mamata has trained her gun at BJP for the sporadic post-poll violence that took place in the last two days. “It is their baby. They have spoiled the situation. Some sporadic incidents are there, but that will be tackled. After election it happens in every state. I don’t want any violence or anything. BJP is trying to create communal clash, because of their shameful defeat,” Mamata was quoted as saying by NDTV.
