LEADING FROM THE FRONT: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee participates in a roadshow as a part of her election campaign in Kolkata on Saturday.
Thousands of slogan-shouting people cheered her when she walked from Mominpur to Khidderpore.
“We seek the blessings of the people of Bengal. We all have to work and fight unitedly”, she said as slogans of “Maa Mati Manush Zindabad” and “Mamata Banerjee zindabad” rent the air.
Ms. Mamata, walking the entire stretch, interacted with people who had gathered on both sides of the road as her die-hard supporters and common people tried to break the police cordon. She herself broke the security cordon on several occasions to reach out to them.
