CM Mamata Congratulates Poll Winners


Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday congratulated the “winners” of the assembly polls in five states and asked the “losers” not to lose heart.

She however did not take the name of any party or individual in her tweets. “Congratulations to winners in different states.

Congratulations to the voters for making their choice. To the losers, don’t lose heart,” Banerjee said in a tweet.

“In a democracy, we must respect each other because some will win, some will lose. Trust the people,” Banerjee said in another tweet.

The ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal has been at the loggerheads with the Modi government over the issue of demonetisation and the arrest of two of its MPs by CBI in connection with an alleged ponzi scam.
