CM Mamata Banerjee apologises for Bengal minister's remarks on President Murmu
Kolkata: Condemning ministerial colleague Akhil Giri's controversial remarks on President Droupadi Murmu, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, "on behalf of the TMC", apologised for his statement on Monday, asserting that such comments are not in line with her party's culture.

Banerjee said she has immense respect for the President, and her party has cautioned Giri against making such derogatory remarks in the future. "We respect the President of India. She is a highly respected lady. We condemn the statement made by minister of state Akhil Giri; what he said is wrong. The party has already condemned the statement and has also cautioned Akhil Giri," the CM said at a press conference at the state secretariat.

Banerjee also said that the party "does not support" Giri's opinion and will take stringent action against him if he repeats such mistakes. "I personally respect President Droupadi Murmu. She is a very nice lady, and I like her a lot. I apologise for Akhil Giri's statement; I apologise on behalf of my party. We have great regard for the President, and making such comments is not part of All India Trinamool Congress culture," she said.
