Politics in West Bengal: 2011
When we are talking about politics in West Bengal, the first thing comes in our mind is CPM. They are ruling the government here for last 34 years. And what they did is really important. Closure of factories. Flight of Capital because of Labour unrest. Politics in School union. Abolition of English in the primary level in the state runs school.
In the year 1977 in Calcutta the CPM came into power for the first time. In last 34 years roads, power and infrastructure have developed. The health and education has deteriorated tremendously in this state. Law and order of the Government is governed by the 'Party'. Cost of living has increased manifold. The thick Skin of the Government employees and their job towards the work is frightening.
And talking about Mamata Banerjee, she is a one women army. She is in politics since her college life and still struggling for the nation and Bengal. As a Railway Minister she has given many projects for Bengal. She is still fighting for the 400 acres of land in Singur as well.
In this assembly election 2011 both the parties are trying hardest effort for Chief Ministers Seat and Ruling West Bengal. In this assembly election campaign we have already seen the naked face of the CPM, the language they are using is really worst and lastly the Sindoor Issue against Mamata Banerjee is really shameful. There are still 3 phase of elections left in our state and I think the people of West Bengal will speak through their vote.
CPM and Trinamul Congress both should give the priority to Bengal first. If either returns to the politics of Bands, the state will die.
I hope Trinamul Congress will come into power. Given that the left front has failed to deliver in the last 33 years, it is only fair that Trinamul should get a chance to show their mettle.
If the left front fail in this assembly election (which is very normal), then they can be voted out in 2016 election. My fear is that if the Left Front losses, they will make life difficult for Trinamul. They will go back to their days of Strikes and Bandh. People of urban Bengal, specially the youth want iPads (Industries, Progress, Administration, Developments, and Security) which both the parties should keep in mind and address to them.
