West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday donated Rs one crore from her earning from auction of her paintings to various relief funds run by the state government.

"I am handing over the cheque for Rs one crore to the chief secretary to be used in government relief funds for the poor," Banerjee told reporters at the Writers' Buildings.

Banerjee's paintings were put under the hammer at an exhibition organised by Trinamool Congress mouthpiece 'Jago Bangla' before the assembly election.
