Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has declared that nothing will keep her from protecting the democratic rights of the people.
The 66-year-old, whose leg was injured in Nandigram on Wednesday, made the point with a rally in the heart of Kolkata, rolling in her wheel chair along with hundreds of party workers and supporters, NDTV reported.
“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?” she said.
“I will never bow down. Remember, a wounded tiger is extremely dangerous,” she added.
Appealing for peace, she said, “May the unholy powers be destroyed and the good prevail”.
Banerjee sustained injuries on her leg during a visit to Nandigram on Wednesday, where she had gone to file her nomination papers
