MAMATA AS BENGAL C.M.
Picture taken Pradip Sanyal, Telegraph, Kolkata.
In my earlier post “POTENT COMBINATION”, I wrote : “However, what harms JUH-I’s interest is industrialization. If JUH-I’s core constituents start making money, they will lead the “good life”, start getting “educated” in regular schools and thus JUH-I’s grip on them will fade fast. Hence, most regressive Islamic leaders abhor industrialization.
But they cannot do it alone. They need a “desperate” actor. People like Laloo Prasad etc, are part of this group, who state SIMI is not a terrorist organization. Question is, where does Mamata stand? Will she allow herself to be exploited by Siddiqqullah and damage the industrial renaissance that Bengal needed by her short-sightedness?”
Remember Mulayam Singh Yadav – he wanted to give Fridays off as holidays in UP to appease the Muslims. The same goes for Mamata, and also shows the enormous clout Muslims and Naxalite groups are playing in Mamata’s stand, which single handedly is derailing West Bengal.
Question is: Other than citing dismay, what is the Left Front Govt. doing? NOTHING !! Have they factored in another industry in the place of TATAs? Their inaction is SHOCKING. Surely, its more than vote bank politics, or have we all become morally bankrupt?
Let’s postulate WEST BENGAL under MAMATA BANERJEE as CM. WHAT TO EXPECT?
1. All industries (private / public) to have reservation for SC/ST/OBC/ MUSLIMS and this will exceed 50%
2. All Industries to pay more to state exchequer, including many “pro-people” incentives to workers (including part time workers), making Trianamool UNION a ferocious entity.
3. No new industry will come up. So say good bye to INFOSYS, MITTALS etc – a loss of Rs 80,000 Crs investment and counting
4. With negative industrial growth, job scenario will dwindle creating chaos in villages and turbulence in cities, the right mix that will aid the Naxalites and Muslims.
5. Closing down of shopping malls for being anti – people
6. Closing down of Clubs for being too “bourgeoisie”
7. FRIDAYS to be declared a Holiday to appease her core constituency. Get ready to work on SUNDAYS.
8. All FOOTPATHS are to be re-named "HAWKERS ONLY ZONE". Please start walking on ROADS !!
Lin Piao’s theory of occupying the villages before overwhelming the cities comes to mind when I see MAMATA today.
A plea to LEFT FRONT Govt. See what you have done from the 70s, given rise to a siege mentality when the best industries left Kolkata. See how Mumbai and Gujrat prospered at the expense of Bengal. This is your last chance to Right a Wrong. Don’t let MAMATA & her “rowdies” take BENGAL away from INDIA.
