In West Bengal, democracy has been strangulated by bloody politics of Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers. The way TMC workers resorted to violence during the Panchayat election recently, it was obvious that they had tasted blood. Now two murders within three days of dalit youths present a frightening picture of West Bengal in front of the country. In the first incident, BJP worker Trilochan Mahato was found hanging from a tree. And in the next incident, BJP worker Dulal Kumar was found dangling from a transformer pole. Here it is worth mentioning that during the regime of Atal Behari government at the Centre, Mamta Bannerjee came rushing to Delhi and held a press conference at Constitution Club and showed injury marks on her body, perpetrated by CPM goons, where the democracy was then virtually murdered. It is to be noted that the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, replying to a question in the state legislative assembly, accepted that during the 30-year regime of CPM in the state, 28 thousand political murders took place. And now, the same picture of West Bengal is emerging, where TMC workers rule the roost. The incidents of violence captured on cameras and circulated on social media during the filing of nominations for the Panchayat elections in the rural areas of the state bear testimony to the fact that the party has done little in terms of governance apart from engaging in propaganda. So, what is the reason for this ominous condition in West Bengal, when the responsibility of maintaining law and order in the state lies with Mamta Bannerjee herself? The reasons are increasing population of Muslims and unemployment. According to Census 2011 data, in three districts of Bengal, Murshidabad, Malda and North Dinajpur, the Muslim population has surpassed the Hindu population. Moreover, if in India the Hindu population has dipped by 0.7 per cent, in Bengal it is much higher at 1.94 per cent. Correspondingly, if the Muslim population has increased by 0.8 per cent, in Bengal the growth has a higher rate – 1.77 per cent. There are a very few companies left in the state, and unemployment is increasing. Educated Bengali people are leaving West Bengal due to negligible opportunity. So much so, recently, Ministry for Social Justice released data on the number of beggars in India. In this list, West Bengal is on the top. West Bengal has the highest number of beggars and vagrants in India. The total number of beggars in the country is over four lakh, with 81,000 beggars in West Bengal.
TMC is now “Trina Mulla Congress”. How do you expect Mamata to do anything good at national level seeing the violence she has unleashed in Panchayat polls. Then she talks about democracy & Constitution! While INC and Left are tasting a part of their own medicines during their rule, poor BJP has to face this violence being democratic. Mamata will face the wrath of the people in the ballot box, as the recent Panchayat election was a farce. The election should be held under the Central forces supervision as the Kolkata Police or any other wing of police force have become more or less totally inactive for law and order, permitting goons of ruling TMC to do whatever they like. Mamata would deny but it is well known universally now. She fits now as a Fascist with violence towards any opposition. One should not forget the fact that West Bengal has its unique bloody history ever since Independence movement, followed by Naxalite movement and anti-Naxalite state-sponsored pogrom. Then came the Marxist rule with its own theology of elimination era. Trinamool flanked by mostly turncoat activists from yesteryear Marxists, ruling the roost in West Bengal
today, are the rightful descendants of terror raj of West Bengal. BJP with its Sangh ideology is the only hope that West Bengal can achieve to revive its rich Chaitanya-Ramakrishna ideology. West Bengal is the land of Subhash Chandra Bose, Vivekanada and Ras Bihari Bose. The land has nationalism in its blood. It has the potential to reclaim national leadership and it will get this under an able leadership.
