“I will never bow down. Remember, a wounded tiger is extremely dangerous,” the West Bengal Chief Minister said in today’s rally in Kolkata.
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, with a leg in a cast and sitting in a wheelchair, today declared that nothing will keep her from protecting the democratic rights of the people. The 66-year-old TMC supremo, whose leg was injured in Nandigram on Wednesday, made the point with a rally in the heart of Kolkata, rolling in her wheelchair along with hundreds of party workers and supporters.
“I am hurt and unwell, but my goal remains (remaining steadfast to her cause and people of Bengal). My body is full of bruises. I will continue to roam around Bengal on this wheelchair. If I go on bed rest, who will reach out to the people of Bengal?” the West Bengal CM said.
“I will never bow down. Remember, a wounded tiger is extremely dangerous,” Ms Banerjee added.
Mamata Banerjee, appealing for peace, said: “May the unholy powers be destroyed and the good prevail”.
The West Bengal Chief Minister had sustained injuries on her leg during a visit to Nandigram on Wednesday, where she had gone to file her nomination papers.
