Kolkata: Assuring the Muslim community that they have nothing to fear, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said with its help she would fight "every battle" to save the country.
Banerjee acknowledged that the community has helped her uphold secularism, national unity, the ethos of the country and the state as also "every social work".
"In every social work, for the unity of the nation, secularism, tradition of the country and the state, for the development of the state, you always help us. You also deserve our help.
"If you are with us, then see, how we fight every battle. We will fight. There is nothing to be afraid," she said at an Eid-ul-Fitr congregation.
Banerjee said one who is afraid is finished. But those who continue to fight, become successful.
"We will protect our India. We will never turn away from our country. Hum se jo takrayega, woh chur chur ho jayega," she said, in a jibe at the Central government.
