Mamata releases message from hospital, says, 'Please be calm'

In her message, Mamata said she will not be rescheduling her election work as she hopes to get fine within two to three days.

A day after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was allegedly attacked in Nandigram, she released a video message urging people, party workers to be calm and exercise restraint. She also said she will not be affecting her election work for the injury but will have to remain wheel-chair-bound for some time.

"It's true that I have been injured severely yesterday. I have pain in my hand, leg. There are ligament injuries too. Yesterday, I experienced pain in my head and chest. I was offering my prayer at that time. There was such a massive push that my leg got squeezed by the car," Mamata can be seen saying in the video.

"Will request everyone to be calm and exercise restraint. Don't do anything to inconvenience others. I hope to get back to my work within two to three days. I will have some problem working but I will manage. Won't cancel my meetings. But probably I will remain in the wheelchair for some time. Please cooperate with me," the Trinamool supremo said from the hospital.

The video was shared on Twitter by the All India Trinamool Congress on Thursday.

After the episode, Mamata was brought to Kolkata's SSKM hospital through a green corridor and has been admitted since then. SSKM director Monimoy Banerjee said Banerjee has a severe bone injury in her left ankle. "There were marks of injury in her right shoulder, right forearm and neck. She was complaining of chest pain and had trouble breathing," the director said.

Mamata's video can be seen as a message to her party workers who blocked trains near Kadambagachi station on the Sealdah–Hasnabad line to protest against the attack.
