Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], December 28 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee cancelled her visit to Nandigram where she was scheduled to address a public gathering on January 7.

Earlier in the day, she said the BJP-led central government is targetting Nobel laureates like Amartya Sen and Abhijit Banerjee for narrow politics.

"I have been targeted politically. I do not mind that. Our educationists are being targeted and now they are feeling isolated. Nobel laureates like Amartya Sen or Abhijit Banerjee hold a different place in society. In all these years, they did not say anything on Netaji. Now they are vocal about him," Banerjee said while addressing the media in Bolpur. (ANI)
