Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, April 11: Indian politicians seem to have become tech-savvy. Earlier Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi had received the tag and now his counterpart in West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee is all set to acquire the same.

Mamata Banerjee, the supremo of Trinamool Congress (TMC), who has been admitted to hospital in Kolkata, continued to address the people through social networking site Facebook.

Wishing the people on Ugadi and Gudi Padwa, the CM on Thursday, April 11 wrote, "I wish all my brothers and sisters a very Happy Ugadi and Gudi Padwa." Gudi Padwa and Ugadi are celebrated in Maharashtra and Southern states in the country respectively.

Ms Banerjee earlier on Wednesday also wrote, "I am really shocked and astonished to see the incident which happened yesterday in front of Planning Commission, a constitutional body which had invited us for finalization of Annual Plan size for Bengal."

"Politics has become so dirty and nasty. I have spent about 25 years in Delhi since my election as Member of Parliament in 1984. What I saw yesterday is totally unprecedented and I have no words to express my condemnation of this incident. I am really shocked," she added.

Ms Banerjee's statement surfaced criticising the protest of SFI activists in Delhi. Members of SFI, the student wing of CPI(M), had blocked the chief minister's passage in the Planning Commission in Delhi on Tuesday and manhandled state Finance Minister Amit Mitra while they were going to attend a meeting.

The chief minister subsequently fell ill and was administered oxygen while Mitra was put under observation at AIIMS. Later on Wednesday she cancelled her crucial meet with Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram and left for Kolkata.

Belle Vue Clinic CEO K Tandon on Thursday was quoted as saying, "Chief Minister is stable and she is now resting in our clinic under the observation of a 10-member medical team led by Dr Subrata Moitra."
