Mamata Banerjee's Message On Eid: People Should Be United Amid Attempts To Create Intolerance

Mamata Banerjee said no one will be allowed to create division among people.


Kolkata:  West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said that attempts were being made to create an "atmosphere of intolerance" in the country and urged the people to stand united.

Attempts are being made to create an atmosphere of intolerance. We believe we are united; we are for all. We are 'insaan' first, Hindus, Muslims or Christians later", she said.

"We work for all, whether they are Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs or Jains", she said.

"We will keep defending humanity as long as we are alive. We will not allow anyone to create any division between people. We all stand united. No one can break us. We are for all and we fight for all", Ms Banerjee said.
