“I am impressed by the way she conducts her personal life. It is a life of austerity. A leader should live in austerity if he or she is truly committed to raising the people out of poverty,” Thinley, who met Banerjee over lunch at Raj Bhavan, told a press conference.
“I understand that she is a leader who is ready to sacrifice her life. When I met her, I expressed my appreciation over her refusal to accept the kind of security that is absolutely necessary for a person of her position,” he said.
Noting that he had known Banerjee “for a long time” as a “good servant of the people”, Thinley said, “I have studied and made enquiries about what motivates her. Today, I am convinced that her motivation is the service of the people.”
“I think Paschimbanga will see progress under her,” he added.
