Kolkata, May 20: Shortly after her swearing-in as West Bengal's first woman chief minister today, Mamata Banerjee said she would prefer to be called a commoner.
Asked how she was feeling now that she has become the chief minister, Banerjee quipped, “Yes I am a chief minister.
I would better prefer to be called a commoner.” Banerjee said she had a meeting with Governor M K Narayanan after the swearing-in on the development of the state and that she intended to talk to the Governor every week.
“Now I am going to the Writers' Building where I will hold a cabinet meeting.
Thereafter I may speak to you,” Banerjee told reporters as she was leaving the Raj Bhavan. PTI
