Like every year, this year too, the West Bengal Government has set up all the facilities for a successful Gangasagar Mela, and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has taken a leading part.Lakhs of pilgrims have arrived from all over India, and many from other countries too. History should not be distorted.

In an obvious reference to the PIL filed in the Calcutta High Court, she said, in her convocation address, "I had faced disrespect from some quarters since my early days and was wondering whether I should be attending the convocation".

Calcutta University has planned to confer D.Litt. on Mamata Banerjee.

The degree was presented by West Bengal Governor and Chancellor of the University Keshari Nath Tripathi at a ceremony at the Nazrul Manch in the metropolis.

His counsel Bikas Bhattacharya submitted that university issues and education itself are of public interest and as such the petition was justified to be a PIL.

According to the PIL, the decision of the syndicate and senate of the CU to confer the Trinamul Congress supremo with a D.Litt was arbitrary and lacks logic.

On Wednesday, the Calcutta High Court division bench ruled, "Whether she (chief minister) is fit to be given the D.Litt will be dependent on the order of the court".

The petitioner mentioned that conferring the degree to Banerjee will undermine the standard of the university and the prestige of the award. The chief minister has also consented to receive the honour during the varsity's annual convocation. Advocate General Kishore Dutta said the plea was "out and out in political interest", and that "except character assassination, nothing is there", reported PTI.
