Quoting Dhankhar's tweet, Malviya said, "The governance framework in West Bengal has been shred to pieces by Mamata Banerjee. There isn't a single institution she hasn't wrecked. The task of rebuilding West Bengal from the ruins of her destruction would be an arduous one. She is temperamentally unfit to hold any public office."

Earlier in the day, Dhankhar had said that VCs in 24 universities were appointed without the approval of the Chancellor, the appointing authority, which is the Governor.

"These appointments carry no legal sanction and would be forced to take action unless soon recalled," the Governor said.

Dhankhar is the ex-officio Chancellor of the state-run universities.

Earlier this month, Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors of private universities did not attend a meeting called by the Governor.
