Not invited to KIFF inauguration: West Bengal Governor

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar said that he has not been invited to the inauguration of Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF).

The inauguration of KIFF is scheduled to take place on Friday evening and would be attended by prominent film personalities of the country.

"I am not concerned about not being invited to the Kolkata International Film Festival, but with the attitude (of the state government)," he said and referred to the "insult" at the Durga Puja carnival in October.

"You all have seen what happened in the carnival ...

It was unthinkable ... Someone said that I am looking for publicity. I do not wish to respond to everything," the governor, who has been at loggerheads with the Mamata Banerjee government on various issues, said.

He said, "There is no urge in me to attend the function. But there is urge in me to see that interest of the state of West Bengal is not compromised."
