At a personal level I forgive the perpetrator: Abhishek Banerjee
Trinamool Youth Congress President and Diamond Harbour MP, Abhishek Banerjee wrote on on his Facebook page:
It has been about 24 hours since yesterday’s incident. What happened in Chandipur is now the subject of a police enquiry. So let me restrain myself from making any comments that would pre-judge the enquiry. My beliefs and my will to work will not lessen because of what happened. Whoever is behind this act of cowardice has no idea what we are made of. I am now doubly committed to working for the people and doing my very best for them. At a personal level, however, let me forgive the perpetrator and wish him early recovery. Today is a new day, let us look ahead. I also urge my co-workers to maintain peace, harmony through out the state and be restrained in their actions.
