However when it comes to numbers, Didi often goes overboard. Like more TMC men in jails [because of dusht CPM] than total prison population of West Bengal, or more farmers affected in an area than total population of that area, 20 point earthquake in Sikkim, jobs increasing by lakhs every month, more land acquired than actually available and so on.

Yesterday she was saying that she is "Bagher Baccha". I think people of West Bengal love this kind of talk and she knows it and thus plays to the gallery. Compare this with the drab imperialist nonsense that the Bimans are always talking about.

‘Affection’ for Mamata lands karate team in soup

http://www.indianexpress.com/news/af...n-soup/896036/

Quote:
When members of the Bengal karate contingent walked into Salt Lake Stadium during the opening ceremony of a national sporting event in Kolkata on Wednesday, there was something that took the audience by surprise. Call it affection or sycophancy, the Bengal team members were holding aloft cutouts of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and state sports minister Madan Mitra instead of the flag of their association. While the message written below CM’s cutout was “satatar pratik” (honesty personified), Mitra’s cutout carried the message: “Our Evergreen Sports Minister”.

With Governor M K Narayanan taking the salute, it was considered a clear breach of protocol.

Bengal is hosting the Panchayat Yuva Krida Aur Khel Abhiyan (PYKKA)

Sports minister Madan Mitra hit out at those who were “trying to create controversy”. “The karate team was not a part of the opening ceremony. How will they take part in the march past? If someone is showing footage then that could be doctored. It was a blatant lie,” Mitra told The Indian Express.

Olympian P K Banerjee, who was present at the venue, however, begged to differ. “It looked odd, very odd,” he said.

It's what he has said earlier too

On a query on whether Tatas will go back to West Bengal again, Mr. Tata said: “I do not think our position has changed... As and when the hostilities are over and (if) we get an amicable reception, we will think of it.”
However some media groups have a different interpretation and are claiming that the Tatas are looking forward to investing in WB. They also think Mamata is now good M in the books of Tata.

Raiganj professor assaulted by "student" organizations (TMC or Chatraparishad?). Earlier Jadavpur Vidyapeeth principal was assaulted by TMC leaders. SFI and Chatraparishad have also gheraoed the Ashutosh College authorities.

From Star Ananda





Principal assaulted inside College

http://www.business-standard.com/ind...orters/460893/

Quote:
Last month the headmaster of Jadavpur Vidyapith, a prominent school in Kolkata, was assaulted by a group of hooligans led by the local Trinamul Congress (TC) councilor in the school. Today another group of hooligans assaulted the principal and other teachers of Raigunj College, North Bengal in the college campus in broad daylight. As the live footage of the assault on the teachers were telecast by vernacular channels, city’s civil society protested in anger.

This time the attack was led by the district TC president Tilak Chowdhury who was seen leading the crowd with party flags in hands. Later the humiliated and hapless principal Dilip De Sarkar accused the TC for the assault on him and his colleagues and said that in the prevailing situation he had been forced to close down the college sine die. Also, he conveyed his decision to the vice Chancellor of North Bengal University of resigning from the post of principal. Debashish Biswas, a teacher of the college also resigned protesting the act of vandalism by the ruling party supporters. Prof. Biswas later told media that all his life he had been a die hard supporter of anti-Left politics. “But is this the change we asked for?” Biswas commented.
Ever since Mamata Banerjee came to power, her party supporters have started storming the schools and colleges aiming at capturing the students and non-teaching employees unions and terrorizing the teachers who are not showing enough enthusiasm for the TC.

The ruling party leaders were unrepentant. Firhad Hakim, Madan Mitra and Goutam Deb, all TC leaders and ministers of Mamata Banerjee government tried to defend the act of vandalism saying that this could be handiwork of outsiders to malign the party.

A number of people also criticized the police inaction and demanded action should be taken against them.

Actually, these kind of information is required very much to keep the image that industrialists are very eager to invest in WB; its up to MB to decide. In fact this is the mentality for the most of the WB population ... we think businessman are bad and they should do business in govt./local 'dada'/political parties terms & conditions. Unless this mentality changes, big leap in industrealiation in WB is impossible.

We remember Dhaki only when Durga puja comes. Once Puja gone, we dump these Dhakis who are the real icon of Sarad festivity - without their beats no puja transcends into festivity. My appeal - please look into their lives, may try to give a small support - financial or otherwise and protect this hereditary profession - may like to read the link on the theme

continued from this page

actually you might find this Mamata interview by Sagarika Ghose on IBN interesting. I have to congratulate Sagarika for asking these questions to her.

@ 32:30 are you a one-(wo)man government?
@ 33:10 -- but your ministers don't speak
@ 34:10 -- you have created a culture of yes men; you don't welcome dissent; everyone around you is fearful
@ 38:10 -- when Sagarika raised the "the bhavanipur kando" she threatened to go for a defamation suit
