Sourav Ganguly statue row: Mamata Banerjee intervenes
Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly's statue was not erected on the given day due to some Intra-group violence among the leaders of the ruling party of Trinamool Congress. The Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee had to finally intervene in the issue as Sourav Ganguly is regarded as the pride of Bengal as well as the whole nation. Sourav Ganguly is not only the hero of West Bengal but also the whole country. We are really disheartened that these dirty politics has happened with a personality like him. The Association will install his statue as early as possible and we are happy that he is finally getting the honour which he always deserves.” said the South Dinjapur Sports Association official Goutam Goswami .
