The chief minister said this on the occasion of the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.
"Today is World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. Our State Government has always believed in unity in diversity. Communalism has no place in the minds and hearts of the people of Bengal," she tweeted this morning.
The Day, observed annually, is a United Nations sanctioned international holiday for the promotion of diversity issues.
Ms Banerjee has accused the BJP of stoking communal tension in the state.
Incidentally, an analysis of the data on the number of incidents of communal violence in different states in the country, tabled in Parliament by Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Hansraj Gangaram Ahir on February 6, showed that such incidents had sharply increased in West Bengal over the past three years.
