Bangladesh Protests: Mamata Banerjee Offers Shelter to ‘Those in Distress’ as Death Toll Crosses 130

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Sunday that the Trinamool Congress-led state government would provide shelter to people fleeing violence in Bangladesh if they seek refuge in Bengal. Speaking at a mega 'Martyrs' Day' rally in Kolkata, Banerjee emphasized the humanitarian duty to aid those in need, referencing the United Nations' resolution on refugee protection. "I cannot speak anything about Bangladesh as it is another country. The Indian government will speak about that. But if helpless people (from Bangladesh) knock on Bengal's door, we will give them shelter. There is a resolution of the UN. Neighbours will respect refugees," Banerjee declared amid heavy rain. #BangladeshProtests #StudentUnrest #DhakaLockdown #QuotaReform #MamataBanerjee #BangladeshProtestLIVE #BangladeshCivicUnrest #BangladeshNews #InternationalNews #MamataBanerjeeRally #MartyrsDayRally #Bengal #BangladeshRefugees ~HT.97~PR.152~ED.103~
