West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was awarded the 'Bangla Akademi Award' for her "tireless literary pursuit".
The award was presented to Banerjee for her book "Kabita Bitan", which pays tribute to the best writers of West Bengal.
This book is a collection of 946 poems written by Mamta Banerjee.
Banerjee was given this award at the "Ravi Pranam" function organised by the Information and Culture Department of the government on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore.
