After giving the killer blow to CPM, is Mamata going to do the same to the dynasty?

Yes, she has been in the news in the recent past for all the wrong reasons. It’s outright insecure and almost suicidal for a national leader of an intellectual and free-thinking state like West Bengal to target a professor for forwarding a cartoon! There are no two ways of looking at it. Leaders are supposed to let their work do the speaking and not their might. We aren’t living in the Hitlerian era. It’s also ridiculous to talk of turning Calcutta into London by painting the trees blue. London is about its democracy (freedom of forwarding cartoons), equality in access to health, education and justice, its high life expectancy, negligible infant mortality and a far more equitable society apart from its astounding standard of safety and cleanliness in comparison with Calcutta. In all these respects, West Bengal and Calcutta are at least 25 years away, assuming we get a government led by a sincere leader who works genuinely day and night for its people. Apart from arguably destroying the future of Indian Railways by compromising on possible safety upgradations by not increasing railway fares again and again at a Central level, Mamata has also not announced a budget for West Bengal and kept all finances at her whim and fancy; she has hardly done anything worthwhile for the state’s education, health or employment situation while continuing to work in a very autocratic highhanded manner. Thus, many would argue she indeed has rightly won the ire of intellectuals of Bengal who supported her so wholeheartedly, and are now deserting her one by one.

But in the middle of all this, one must not forget her achievements, which in a country of scamster & criminal politicians is reason enough for the nation to wait for at least another two years before passing a judgment on her. Her biggest achievement – for which alone she should be given a five-year free run – has been to rid Bengal of the dictatorial CPM.

mamata banerhjeeThe communists desperately needed to sit in the opposition to realize that good ideals simply on pen and paper are not good enough. Power corrupted their ideals beyond recognition and they had become a party of goons, riggers and fascists. And if removing them was not good enough, doing it without any bloodshed is Mamata’s biggest achievement. But it doesn’t end there. She has also done what Nitish in Bihar and Raman Singh in Chattisgarh have failed to do. She is the first and only leader in the country to have tamed the menace of the Maoists in the Junglemahal area of Bengal by genuinely giving access to food to the poor there. And she could do it all due to one reason – her determined will to do good for the poor in the Junglemahal area. And finally, she tamed the Gorkha problem in the hills of Bengal immediately after taking power. None of these two issues could be resolved by the CPM in their years of power. And these three things are landmark and historical. While the mainstream media focussed only on the CPM issue, that too without really highlighting the immense value of it, it completely has ignored her other two very, very crucial achievements.

Mamta Banerjee has been an asset for West Bengal.....don't blame her as controversies are part and parcel of political life.

I agree with your opinions on Manmohan Singh.....truly said.

Atanu said...

Mamta Banerjee has really done good job as the CM of the state......there are very few who continuously do good for the people of their state.

Take actions against people who really need to be punished.

santosh kumar said...

She has been an excellent leader all throughout and one of the best CM at present.

Pyush said...

She really is a good leader and must concentrate on the development of the state rather than on such baseless issues.

Sumit said...

I think she needs to act in a much mature way than she does other wise she is an excellent leader.

Smita Nayak said...

We need some more responsible ministers like Mamta Banerjee.....she truly has served in a far better way to the state than some other ministers have.

ankit said...

Its high time the system is changed bringing in some new,responsible and more committed ministers.

suman kumari said...

Its really shameful that a national leader of such a repute is targeting a professor for his cartoons......she should instead focus on some other area that really needs her attention.

Nisha said...

I don't think she has really contributed to her potential.....she could have done much as a leader but has failed to deliver.

Sudhir Kumar said...

India must first get rid of all its corrupt leaders for the betterment of the country.

Rajesh Sharma said...

She has been a good and a dedicated leader but she does need to act in a much mature way some of the times.
