As West Bengal Chief Minister blocked author Salman Rushdie from entering Kolkata to promote Deepa Mehta's film 'Midnight's Children', Trinamool Party leaders have come out in her defence saying she did nothing wrong. 'There is nothing shameful, I am congratulating the state government for taking the right decision,' said Sultan Ahmed.
