Mamta releases message calls for restraint

A day after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was allegedly attacked in Nandigram, she released a video message urging people, party workers to be calm and exercise restraint. She also said she will not be affecting her election work for the injury but will have to remain wheel-chair-bound for some time.

“It’s true that I have been injured severely yesterday. I sustained injuries in hand, leg & ligament. I was standing near the car when I was pushed against it, yesterday. There are ligament injuries too. I am on medication & will soon leave from Kolkata,” said West Bengal CM Mamata  Banerjee.

Earlier a three-member TMC delegation, led by state minister Partha Chatterjee met EC officials and registered a complaint into the incident and demanded a thorough probe. Chatterjee was accompanied by TMC leader in Rajya Sabha Derek O’Brien and state minister Chandrima Bhattacharya.
