Kolkata: Admitting she was emotional, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said a person can never have a clear conscience until and unless he or she is emotional.
“Sometimes people say that I am very emotional, my decisions are driven by my emotions. I would like to answer them by saying that a person can never have a clear conscience until and unless he is emotional,” Banerjee said, while giving a speech in Belur of Howrah district.
Banerjee has often been accused – both by the opposition and her well wishers – of taking decisions which are driven by her emotions rather than cool political calculations.
