West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee described the SC ruling as a “landmark decision” and said:
“I am remembering those people who made sacrifices fighting for this. This is a landmark victory after we thought of the new name for State of West Bengal. I am very happy with the decision. I will call for a strategy meeting tomorrow at 4 p.m. I would expect everyone to celebrate this Singur utsav, its like an invocation of the celebration to Durga Puja. I had dreamt of this SC verdict for so long, for the people of Singur. Now I can die in peace.”
