Banerjee, who is also the TMC boss, said that human rights commission was set up in West Bengal in 1995 following her repeated protests and movements.

"The GoWB has set up 19 human rights courts in the last nine and half years. It was after repeated protests and movements by me that the West Bengal Human Rights Commission was set up in 1995. My best wishes to all," she added.
