Mamata gets brickbats and bouquets on her Facebook debut
Ms Banerjee has, however, received both kudos and criticism from users for her initiative on the social networking site.
"I can't understand one thing we are being asked to vote for Kalam on Facebook when according to the Constitution, our votes don't get counted for presidential polls. It is nothing but making a circus out of politics," posted Sayantan Chakraborty on Ms Banerjee's page.
Some also questioned her opposition to Pranab Mukherjee's candidature. "Mamata di, Pranab da will be the first Bengali President - I think all
Bengalis irrespective of political parties should support him. Can you
state in Facebook, why are you against him?" posted Sanjoy Sen.
The page already has 17,212 likes and her two posts have already received more than 6,000 comments and are still counting.
Most of the comments lauded Ms Banerjee for her guts to take on the Congress and oppose Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee for the post of President.
"My full support to APJ Abdul Kalam who is a most successful President of India. Mamata didi, my full support to you in this fight," posted Kaushik Saha.
"We are walking in that way which way u r showing...with u always," posted Simran Roy.
