Kolkata, May 16 (IANS) Rejoicing at her victory in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Saturday said despite so many brutal killings and the Left’s efforts to stop people from voting, “we have won”.
“This victory is that of the people despite the attempts of the CPI-M, the party that killed our political workers,” Banerjee told reporters here.
