Kolkata, Oct 16: 25-year-old Rezaul Islam Mollah has been doing PhD and his subject is Mamata Banerjee.
After selecting his subject for his thesis, the young man said that he was impressed by her leadership, hence, he decided to pursue his doctorate on her.
Speaking about his decision, Rezaul said that Mamata Banerjee's charismatic leadership and managerial skills impressed him. He is doing his PhD from Vidyasagar University in West Midnapore district.
Speaking about Ms Banerjee's importance in his childhood, Rezaul was quoted as saying, "Since my childhood I have been seeing Mamata Banerjee fighting for the rights of the poor and the oppressed. As a child, I saw how she came to the rescue of my parents and villagers who were being hounded by political goons."
A post graduate in management, Rezaul can't stop talking about Ms Banerjee's managerial qualities especially during the anti-land acquisition movement against the erstwhile Left Front government.
"She doesn't possess a formal degree in management, but the managerial skills that she has is unmatched. The way she led and coordinated the Singur and Nandigram movements, the way she continues to handle various affairs even after becoming the chief minister is a lesson that needs to be taught in management institutions," he said.
The varsity authorities are also excited about Mr Mollah's choice of the subject.
"It is highly commendable that Mollah has chosen a contemporary political figure which is a relatively difficult prospect. The UGC and university were quite happy to approve the subject and we are eager to see his research work," Vidyasagar University Vice Chancellor Ranjan Chakraborty said.
