It’s very difficult to capture power in West Bengal…

bridge-167041_960_720We had to have the violent and long-running Naxalism movement that disrupted the State forever, the political uncertainty of 1967-72, which saw many aaya ram gaya ram Chief Ministers and the sheer tyranny of Congress Chief Minister SS Ray (that shut the party out of the State forever) before the CPM could come to power.
Mamata Banerjee found herself as the Chief Opposition after the 1996, 2001 and 2006 Assembly elections (hence her stints at the Centre to bide her time) before she could claim the throne in 2011.
The BJP has just now grabbed the mantle of Chief Opposition of West Bengal in 2021.
The other side of the coin: It’s very difficult to lose power in Bengal too…
From 1947-77, 30 years, the Congress was either the Ruler or Chief Disruptor. It was a tragedy of errors that led to their exit.
The CPM ruled from 1977-2011, a record 34 years.
And even now Mamata has got three straight terms and will see herself as a favourite for 2026 too.

Musings on various States that see Goonda Raj in India today…

Only in India is a murder measured by caste, religion, political allegiance, who’s CM and who’s PM.
Nobody really cares for the dead person.

In India living people are treated like shit.
Dead people are treated like gold.

One secular death is 100 times greater than 100 communal deaths.
When you get into such equations, you will never get a solution.

Crime rates spiked under Akhilesh, Mamata and Nitish’s latest term.
But since they are secular, don’t hold them accountable for anything.

Complete Freedom of Speech is granted only to Modi Haters.
Kejri, Mamata, Nitish, Kanhaiya etc have wisely realized this.

A jungle is beautiful.
In a jungle animals kill to survive not for fun.
Jungle Raj is wrong—it’s Goonda Raj. Anarchy.
And it’s all Nitish’s doing.

Modi good governance kare to jallaad.
Akhilesh/Nitish/Lalu/Mamata bad governance kare to laadla/laadli.
What about the people suffering under them?

3 most pressing issues for citizens of Delhi…
1. Modi’s degree.
2. Kanhaiya’s welfare.
3. Uttarakhand
Power, garbage, paani sab gaya tel lene.
Source: CM.

Nitish-Lalu-Mamata-Akhilesh-Siddu are destroying governance in their States.
No alleged intellectual-liberal-secular cares.
They are supported in fact.

Deaths in Bihar are rampant.
Some times they are covered by media.
Never are Nitish-Lalu pulled up for the same.
Two perfect politicians?

To me the biggest political mystery is how India’s worst roughest rudest Goonda Raj politician gets so much love, adoration and support.

Worse the politician, greater the support among intellectuals, seculars, media and liberals.
Good governance is dead boring.

Nitish knows that no matter how much he goofs up, he will be a darling for PM candidate by 2018 and hence Goonda Raj will continue unabated.

Bihar-WB-UP have already become more dangerous than J&K.
Who cares?

Everyone knew that Nitish would give bad governance with Lalu.
Everyone knows that Pappu will give bad governance when he becomes Prime Minister.

He’s planning a Sangh-mukt Bharat.
But the way it’s going we may end up with a Nitish-mukt Bihar.

1990 WTF1: Lalu elected!
1995 WTF2: Lalu re-elected!
2000 WTF3: Lalu re-elected again!
2015 WTF4: Lalu makes a comeback!

Fit case for dismissal of Bihar-UP-WB governments over law and order but this cannot even be discussed let alone implemented.

All accepted as normal now.

Left Front 60 LS seats.
Invincible in West Bengal.
Great time for Communist student politics.
Communist politics of any kind no longer a lifelong option.

The States that are sinking…

Kejri went to the centre of Delhi, pointed at the ground and said…
Saugandh Lalu ki khaatein hain, hum Bihar wahin banayenge!

By 2020…
India would be transformed.
Amaravati would be a brand new smart city.
Delhi would become Bihar.
And Bihar God only knows what.

At the entrance of West Bengal, Bihar and Delhi in 2020…
Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

Delhi tolerated a 100 Kejri absurdities from 2014-15.
With the way it’s going, they’ll have to tolerate a few 100 more till 2020.

West Bengal terror musings…

Empty (pori)bartans make a lot of noise.
‪#‎Mamata‬ ‪#‎WestBengal‬ ‪#‎Burdwan‬

After calling Naxalites Gandhians with Guns, someone will probably shamelessly call the West Bengal terrorists Gandhians with Bombs.

“Terr”ible West Bengal hat-trick…
Congress: Reign of Terror.
CPM: Terrorized all opponents.
Trinamool: Terror houses all over.

Khalistan separatism ended, J&K militancy began.
J&K militancy ended, West Bengal terror factories began.
P.S. Left violence running from 1947-2014.

Progress in West Bengal…
Naxalism promoted to Terrorism.
Left (CPM) promoted to Ultra Left (TMC).
Old fogey (Buddha) replaced by megalomaniac (Mamata).

More Assembly poll musings…

∙ The ABCD of Tamil Nadu politics…
B for BJP.
C for Congress.
D for DMK.
Key: Congress aur BJP gaye tel lene.
Hum log permanent A/D alternating current se hi kaam chala lenge.

∙ The Political Traffic Signal of West Bengal has turned Green.
But has the Development Traffic Signal just turned Red?

The Congress Election Campaign in Karnataka is poised to enter its fourth year next month.
The Centre may extend BSY’s term even after 5 years if he is not toppled by then.
(Hum usko gira ke hi rahenge… term expiry is not enough)
P.S. BSY has also emerged as India’s Most Trusted politician.
(Aur kisi ne itne Trust Votes survive kiye hai?)
