Adding to series of allegations against West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday accused him of threatening her and said that he was acting like a "BJP block president".

"He (Governor) threatened me over phone. The way he spoke taking the side of BJP, I felt insulted. I have told him that he cannot talk like this," Banerjee told reporters at the state secretariat.

"He (the governor) is behaving like a block president of BJP. He should understand that he has been nominated to the post...," she said.
