"This has deeply touched my heart ... Your moral support at this juncture is a great source of inspiration to continue our struggle for the cause of farmers," Banerjee, the Trinamool Congress [ Images ] chief, said in a fresh post on Facebook.
Stating that the Singur land movement was a turning point in recent history, Banerjee said, "The movement started a serious debate in the country on the issue of land acquisition from poor and marginal farmers."
Recalling that she had been on a 26 day hunger-strike over the issue, Banerjee said that the sensitivity to land primarily in an agrarian economy had come to the forefront on the Singur issue.
She also thanked those who held different views and said, "This is the essence of our democracy. Let us continue to share our thoughts through this forum."
Banerjee's post on Friday received 1,763 likes and 1,123 comments.
She had said in her post that throughout her life she had struggled for the cause of farmers, working class, poor and the under-privileged.
"Our commitment to be with them will remain, whether I am in power or not. I will continue to fight for this cause. Finally, the people's choice in democracy will prevail," she had written.
In its verdict, the Calcutta high court had said that the legislation, Singur Land and Rehabilitation Act 2011, passed in the West Bengal assembly was unconstitutional and void.
