#NoToBandh, tweets Mamata Banerjee

West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Chairperson Ms Mamata Banerjee today tweeted “#NoToBandh” – her first tweet which is just a hashtag.

Throughout Wednesday #NoToBandh was among the few frequently-tweeted hashtags with people from all walks of life, not just in Kolkata but across India and the world, using the micro-blogging site to vent their ire against bandh culture.

A spokesperson of the All India Trinamool Congress said, “Other parties trend hashtags on Twitter using paid trolls. This is a first hashtag that has been trended by people.”

Earlier, WB CM appealed to the CPM and BJP to withdraw their bandh for the sake of relief operations in earthquake-ravaged Nepal and north Bengal. She also gave a stern message that the administration would take all steps top ensure normalcy of life.
