He took papers and pen and started making sketches drawing a huge crowd in the town. He told newsfromnadia.in, “I liked Somnath Chatterjee very much and decided to pay my respect to him in own way.

He will always be remembered for his transparent character, non partisan and honest role as the Lok Sabha speaker”, Sujit added further. NfN Picture
