Mamata Banerjee takes oath as West Bengal CM for third time
Mamata Banerjee sworn in as Bengal Chief Minister on Wednesday for the third time in the shadow of Covid-19 and post-poll violence in parts of the state. Mamata, in her trademark white Sari and shawl, took oath in Bengali.
The rest of the cabinet and the council of ministers will be sworn in on May 9, the birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore. She has to win as MLA in the next six months as she suffered defeat in Nandigram Assembly constituency. The TMC secured absolute majority in the Assembly elections for which results were declared on May 2.
