From Jamaat-e-Islami to Saradha scam: Why Mamata Government is losing the plot in WB

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took over the reins of the state in 2012, and the buzzword at that time was ‘poriborton' (change). Definitely poriborton took place in the state and the complete credit goes to Mamata didi who has been the agent of change in the state.

The change took place in the form of the rising crimes against women in the state, her leaders have started talking in a new language and rape is becoming a political parlance in her state and many more types of change have took place under her reign.

But it seems all these things hardly move the honourable Chief Minister, rather whenever something wrong comes to fore against her or her party members, she says that it is a plan by the opposition to malign her party.

Her party members (For eg: Tapas Pal, Deepak Haldar) can go to any extent and say whatever they want but they are never wrong and her party members can never do any wrong and if in case they have done something wrong, they can always be forgiven after they write an apology letter. But if someone from the opposition dares to do the same, she will haunt the person till his/her death.

But Didi, what will you say about the statements which you have made. Is that also opposition's propaganda to dethrone you?

Jadavpur molestation case a small incident

Mamata Banerjee claimed that the molestaion case in state's Jadavpur University was a small one and "the media was giving it unnecessary hype to further tarnish Bengal's image. Not to forget when her education minister said that the students who do not like the VC can leave the university and join some other place.

Moreover, Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee's posted on Facebook, "The students are agitating as there has been a crackdown against things like booze, weed and charas on the JU campus".

Rise of BJP in Didi's Bengal

The political equation in West Bengal which has so far been polarised between Left and Trinamool Congress may soon be changed by BJP which secured nearly 18% vote share in the state in 2014 Lok Sabha polls. The vote share of BJP jumped from 6 per cent in the 2009 LS polls to 17.6 per cent which is approximately 18 per cent in the 2014 LS polls.

The party had even won two Lok Sabha seats from West Bengal's Darjeeling and Asansol and the credit for the same goes to Narendra Modi's rise in popularity. Such was the impact of BJP that the CPM's vote share dropped from 30.08% in the 2011 assembly polls to 22.7% in the last LS polls.

Not to forget is the fact that in the recent by-polls in the state, BJP bagged Dakshin Brasat seat and was placed second in Chowringhee assembly.

BJP's surge is making it clear that it is going to give Trinamool a tough fight in the forthcoming municipal polls in January and in the Kolkata municipal polls in May 2015.

Saradha scam paving way for BJP

Tumbling of skeletons from Saradhda scam's cupboard and the alleged linkages of TMC with Jammat in Bangladesh will surely pave way for an alternative in West Bengal. And at present besides BJP, no other eligible alternative is visible.

Voters are readily accepting the BJP as a main opposition party, a space which was once adorned by the CPM in Mamata Didi's era. As per political experts, after the demise of Jyoti Basu and with declining support base, the leaderless Bengal CPM is merely playing the role of ‘dummy opposition' and hence the space for opposition in the State has been vacant since long. Now, the BJP has occupied that space.

TMC links with Bangladeshi radical groups

The Bengali daily Anand Bazar Patrika had alleged that the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee funded anti-India radical group Jamaat-e-Islami in Bangladesh with the Saradha Scam money and in return, her party received funds from the outfit during 2011 assembly and 2014 Lok Sabha polls. This sensational revelation opened a can of worms for the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal and also affected the faith of people in Didi's government.

It seems that with such turnout of events, Didi's is losing her grip over West Bengal and is also losing her halo in the state. These events will surely make didi the falling star of West Bengal. This will eventually also pave way for BJP and will help to make it a win-win situation in the upcoming assembly polls for the party.
