Mamata Banerjee condoles the passing away of Matua matriarch Boro Ma
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee condoles the passing away of Matua matriarch Boro Ma Binapani Thakur:
I am deeply pained at the passing away of Matua matriarch Boro Ma Binapani Thakur. My condolences to her family & my brothers and sisters of Matua Community at this moment of grief. It was a great opportunity for me to meet Boro Ma last November, on the centenary of her birthday.
After overseeing arrangements I just left the hospital. 6 senior ministers there to take care of the last rites. She will be accorded state-funeral with gun salute tomorrow. We are proud to have conferred Banga Bibhusan on Boro Ma. May her soul rest in peace.
