West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday wished luck to an employee of the state police department for his Mount Everest expedition, adding, it is the maiden attempt by any member of the state police.
"Rudraprasad Haldar, an employee of West Bengal Police, will proceed on an expedition to conquer the Everest on 14th April. This will be the first attempt by any member of the West Bengal Police family to capture the summit," Banerjee posted on Twitter and Facebook.
The Trinamool Congress supremo said the feat has been accomplished earlier by Kolkata Police recruits.
"Earlier, our Kolkata Police members have done it. I wish Rudraprasad all the best in his mission to conquer the Everest," she said.
