Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Monday evening that, “We don’t support bandh but we support the cause behind it.”
She further added saying ,”My policy is to stand against the general strike. This is the policy that we follow in West Bengal. Bandh is the only weapon after every alternative that has gone in vain.”
She also said that Congress leader Ahmed Patel has called her few days ago for expressing the reason of general strike across the nation on Monday. But she has categorically stated him that she is with the issue but against the general strike.
