New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said that there was a state of ‘super-emergency’ in the country, while extending greetings on the occasion of International Day of Democracy.

Targeting the government, she called upon the people to do all it takes to protect the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.


“On the International Day of Democracy today, let us once again pledge to safeguard the constitutional values our country was founded on. In this era of 'Super Emergency', we must do all it takes to protect the rights and freedoms that our Constitution guarantees.”

A day before on Hindi Diwas she extended her best wishes  on Saturday, but said one should never forget one’s mother tongue.

In a tweet, Banerjee also called for respecting all languages and cultures. “My best wishes to all on Hindi Diwas. We should respect all languages and cultures equally. We may learn many languages, but we should not forget our mother language,” Banerjee said.

Mamata has been vocally critical of the BJP and has emerged as one of the main rivals of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

After the scrapping of Article 370, she charged the Centre with using "brute force" to "scuttle" the voices of dissent in the Kashmir valley.
