She personally visited the local hospital to meet with the injured, ensuring that their needs were addressed and providing reassurance regarding their condition.

Despite her injury and subsequent hospital visit, Banerjee remained resolute in her duties, briefly stopping at SSKM hospital before returning home. Her proactive response underscores the state government’s dedication to ensuring public safety and accountability in construction practices.
