Mamata Banerjee - All Gimmicks and no Business
Posted by FullMarx on 26 May 2011
It will be one week tomorrow after Mamata Banerjee has sworn in as the chief minister of West Bengal but so far is there any real business undertaken apart from some cheap gimmicks?
Since Mamata has completely demolished the left parties in the poll, they are yet not able to garner courage to point out to the common public about Mamata's gimmick and the lack of seriousness in running state affairs. She is still in the campaign mode and probably she is not able to come to terms that she is already the CM.
I have no complains if she does not want to take a convoy but can a CM afford to take a 2 hour journey to and from from her residence to the office everyday, that is the practical question that public should ask. Her erratic behavior is simply putting the security forces in a tizzy.
What good she did by suddenly stopping at the SSKM? Has the work culture of SSKM changed overnight? Was there any follow up actions or did any heads roll? The answer is a big NO. Nothing has changed at SSKM.
It is also surprising to see that Mr. Shovandev Chattopadhyay, Mayor of Kolkata always with Mamata Banerjee, either in the rear seat of her Santro or behind her when she is addressing the press. Has he been absolved from his duties as mayor of Kolkata Corporation or Mamata has also taken up Mayor's job along with her 8 portfolios that she kept with herself?
Mamata Banerjee has granted 15 crores for the development of Lal Dighi, a tank just in front of Writer's Building as a beautification project and probably that is the first step to convert Kolkata into London! Somebody from his cabinet also commented that it is a quite an easy task (turning Kolkata into London) as the city was originally planned by the British who also made London, what an irrefutable logic! Now, if she is really so caring about "Ma, Mati and Manush" then she could have put this money into the development of health centers in some districts or interior parts of Bengal and 20 health centers could have got some basic equipments and beds with that money instead of upgrading a water tank in the midst of the polluted city.
The corruptions of TMC will soon come into the light, just we have to wait for few more months. The portfolio of ministers was largely distributed (with some exceptions) based on investments made into TMC party and now most of the ministers will reap the harvest. It is an open secret that people like Javed Khan helped Trinamool Congress with money and so he was handed the disaster handling department and I hope they are praying for a flood or drought which will be the ideal scenario to reap a good harvest.
I would be thankful if anybody can show me one pro-people or good-governance act that Mamata has done in her first 7 days in office... except some cheap publicity gimmicks.
The latest is that Mamata will be now entering into a secret deal with Pranab Mukherjee for a large central grant for the state, in return Pranab's son will be propped up and it will be none other than Mamata Banerjee who will make sure Pranab Da's son does not flop in politics. Needless to say, the money will be generously distributed among cabinet colleagues but Mamata will continue to live in the semi-slum type house and wear Bata hawai chappals.
Welcome to the good-governance of Ma-Mati-Manush.

LOL @ amitg, and Karl Marx, your people were no less in gimmicks my dear friend, so now it is her turn. At least West Bengal cannot further deteriorate as it has touched the bottom long time back during the Marxists rule :)

@SPIRITED, it is bengali, extracted from "Ne re pagla ... ebar khir kha" translated "Here you are crazy ... now have some sweet" LOL; not sure what it exactly means but I have seen bengalis use it sometimes. Perhaps it could mean "here is something to keep you happy you crazy dog", but don't take my word for it.
