Our ideology is our shield: Mamata Banerjee
Like every year, Trinamool observed Sanhati Dibas at Mayo Road today. This day is observed as Sanhati Dibas since 1992.
Speaking on the occasion, Mamata Banerjee said, “We can never forget the riots of 1992. The riots ravaged the entire country. We had pledged back then that we will observe December 6 as Sanhati Dibas to foster communal harmony among people.”
She added, “We have never supported politics of riots. We have a responsibility towards the people. We have the support of people from grassroots level.”
She also said, “We can never sacrifice our ideology at the altar of politics. Trinamool was formed on January 1, 1998. Till date we have never taken any anti-people, anti-Constitution, anti-India action.”
We can sacrifice our lives, but not our ideals, she maintained.
