Mamata on dharna, says will continue  Satyagraha till country is saved

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who began a sit-in protest over the CBI's attempt to question the Kolkata Police chief in connection with chit fund scams, said Monday she will continue her Satyagraha till the country and its Constitution are saved. The Chief Minister skipped meals and remained awake the entire night on a makeshift dais here along with some senior ministers and party members. 'This is a Satyagraha and I'll continue till the country is saved,' Banerjee told reporters who accompanied her at the place of dharna.

She said she was getting calls from politicians, including former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamalnath, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Gujarat MLA and Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani. Asked if any of the leaders would arrive in the city to meet her, Banerjee said, 'I've no idea about that. If someone wants to come, we will welcome them. This fight is not by my party. It is for my government". Several party supporters from different districts thronged the area shouting slogans in support of Banerjee.
