Mother was the mother of humanity. Her love for the ailing, the needy and the entire humanity was unbounded,” she said on Twitter.

“Bengal is more proud as Mother lived and worked here and showered us with her abundant love and care. It is indeed a moment of great pride and honour. Bless us Mother, so that we can continue to serve the people,” Mamata said.
