Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee urged people to stay united and fight attempts to create an "atmosphere of intolerance" in the country.

Mamata extended warm greetings to the people on the occasion of Eid-Ul-Fitr after returning from the Netherlands.

On her Eid-ul-Fitr message, she said no one will be allowed to create division among people. "There are times when one has to show courage and conviction. Attempts are being made to create an atmosphere of intolerance. We believe we are united; we are for all. We are 'insaan' first, Hindus, Muslims or Christians later", she said.

"We work for all, whether they are Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs or Jains", she said.

"We will keep defending humanity as long as we are alive. We will not allow anyone to create any division between people. We all stand united. No one can break us. We are for all and we fight for all", Banerjee said.

The chief minister said there was a need to maintain harmony.

"I pray for the good and health and well-being of everyone", she said.
