A ninth standard school girl is compelled to drop out from school because of a goon who stalks her, molests her. Her widow mother who was heckled and threatened by the police instead of taking action against the has threatened to commit suicide along with her four daughters.
This also raises a big question on the tall convictions of ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padao’, made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Still today girls are compelled to leave education and stop going to school because of goons eve-teasing, molesting, stalking even rapes and gang-raped.
The recent incident has surfaced in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh where this school girl was compelled to stop going to school over regular harassment by her neighbour. Whenever she would go out of her home to buy vegetables, groceries or due to some other work, Ankit (the accused) who lives in her neighbourhood stalks her and molest her. When the mother of the girl went to police station to file complaint she was heckled and turned out by the cops.
Will Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his government take action against these errant police personel who are supposed to take action against the accused but threaten the victim and her family instead. Shame on Uttar Pradesh police that makes big convictions but the real picture is scary. This also raises a big question if Yogi Adityanath government will react or remain silent. Will the buldozer of Yogi Adityanath raise the house of this man who has become a nightmare for this girl to the extent of stop going to school. Finally, where is Priyanka Gandhi Vadra who created a storm during the Assembly elections in the state with her campaign, ‘Beti Hoon Lad Sakti Hoon’?
Really have no words to express, all I have to say is “जिन्हें नाज़ है हिंद पर वह कहां हैं!”, the famous lines from Guru Dutt sahib’s iconic film, ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), seems to be so appropriate for such situations. This shameful incident also raises a big question on the people and society around- How long would people stay quiet and silent? Would they only react if such incident would happen to them? Fact, if people raise their voice togather then such incidents would not take place and girls, women would be safe and secured.
The tremors stayed from 44 to 46 seconds. The epicentre of the quake is said to be in the Hindu Kush region in Afghanistan. The earthquake was measured around 6.8 on Richter scale.
The tremors were also felt in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Chandigarh and other parts of northern India. There are some news of destruction from Jammu and Kashmir but nothing specific. Helpline has been opened in the state.
However, being a big quake, it is possible to have aftershocks. However, no news of destruction have reported so far. The exact picture will be clear in the morning.
India unhappy with the reaction of the United Kingdom (UK), over the unruly anti-Indian ‘Khalistan’ protesters creating ruckus at the Indian High Commission and trying pull down the national flag. The UK administation stayed a mute spectator to the entire incident and did nothing to stop these goons or arrest them for insulting the dignity of the Indian flag and creating ruckus at the Indian High Commission in Westminster. These goons were protesting agaist the crackdown on Amritpal Singh, the self-proclaimed President of the pro-Khalistan outfit Waris Punjab De.
On Sunday late evening, the External Affairs Ministry (MEA) summoned British Deputy High Commissioner Christina Scott and demanded an explanation over the videos showing Indian flag being pulled down. However, New Delhi had made it very clear that the attitude of the UK in handling Khalistan separatists will not be accepted.
India has termed the entire incident as an “indifference” to Indian diplomats. The incident has raised huge controversy in the UK as Indian have condemned the attitude.
The British High Commissioner to India, Alex Ellis, condemned the actions and tweeted, “I condemn the disgraceful acts today against the people and premises of the @HCI_London — totally unacceptable”.
However, if delayed then this may lead to another Bhindranwale in the making. Punjab had witnessed huge setback in terms of development during the 80’s when insurgency in the state was at it’s peak and terrorism had ruined Punjab.
This is indeed a very serious issue and UK cannot stay mute spectator as such attitude will only make the bilateral ties between both the countries sour.
A high level meeting of the Trinamool leadership was convened comprising of Ministers, MLAs, and members. The meeting was chaired by Supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The party has been at the helm of controversy and find itself in a Catch-22 situation after it’s leaders are being nabbed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) over the illegal appointments of teachers across educational institutions.
Immediately after the meeting a Press Conference was convened by Sudeep Banerjee, the veteran MP from North Kolkata.
In the conference, Trinamool leader informed about the following decisions:
1) Trinamool to go to people with 11-years of works, projects, and schemes of Mamata Banerjee. Supremo herself will visit districts atleast twice in a month. She will be going to Delhi shortly.
2) People will be apprised of the project – ‘Didir Surokhakoboch’.
3) Trinamool will fight out Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) vindictive ploys to nail down their leaders and called false allegations by ED and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
4) Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav will be meeting Mamata Banerjee and discuss various issues ahead of 2024 polls. The veteran MP informed that both Mamata Banerjee and Akhilesh Yadav may convene a joint Press conference.
Well, so far so good but there are a few missing-links those require an introspection – One, Why the party has to think of going to people with what it has done after 11-years of Trinamool rule in the state? The party after winning the Assembly polls last year had boasted by saying people in the state had voted on the basis of developmental work.
Two, the party has focused only on ‘Didir Surokhakoboch’ but not a single mention of the other schemes – ‘Didir Doot’ (Didi’s messenger), ‘Shobuj Sathi’, ‘Swastha Sathi’, ‘Kanyasree’ and likes. Is it because all the other projects especially ‘Didir Doot’ has fallen on the face value and where ever party leaders are visiting are being shown the door as people have clearly expressed that Trinamool has shamed the masses and they will not bring thes party back next time least talk of electing Banerjee in 2024 as Prime Minister of the country.
Three, why Trinamool is shaking hands with Samajwadi Party that itself has no presence in its home turf of Uttar Pradesh? Besides, in the past we have seen how it’s Supremo Late Mulayam Singh Yadav had refused to give space to Banerjee during the seat sharing ahead of polls.
Four, Trinamool MP spoke of party’s presence across the country. Isn’t it a mockery to talk of “acceptance” when people have shown the door to Trinamool in Meghalaya, Tripura, and Goa Assembly polls. Worst, the party faced a debacle in the Sagardighi by-polls.
Amritpal Singh On The Run / Massive Crackdown / Security Beefed Up / RAF Stages Flag march / High Alert In Punjab
Massive hunt is on to nab Amritpal Singh, the Khalistan sympathizer and radical Sikh preacher who had been trying to spread the message of terrorist Bhindranwale among the youths of Punjab and infuse Sikh fundamentalism. On Saturday, the Punjab state government had launched a major crackdown against Singh. Police have arrested 78 members of Waris Punjab De (WPD), the radical outfit launched by Amritpa Singh. Several criminal cases have been slapped against Singh. The police suspects Amritpal Singh has been maintaining close links with Pakistani intelligence agency ISI and terrorist groups based in foreign countries.
Amritpal Singh, managed to escape police’s dragnet on a motorcycle when the special team of the state police, comprising personnel from seven districts, had followed the Khalistani leader’s convoy on its way to the Shahkot tehsil in Jalandhar. Following this incident, security has been beefed up across the state. Singh has been declared a fugitive. Internet connection and SMS services have been suspended after his aides shared some videos on social media claiming that policemen were chasing them, and urged his supporters to gather at Shahkot. The police said it has launched a “massive state-wide cordon and search operations (CASO)” in the state against elements of the ‘Waris Punjab De’.
The Punjab police have already arrested six to seven gunmen of Amritpal Singh. It has also nabbed 78 members of the radical outfit. Apart from this, the police conducted massive raids across the state and have seized one .315 bore rifle, seven 12 bore rifles, one revolver, and 373 live cartridges of different caliber. Daljeet Singh Kalsi, a close aide of Amritpal Singh who handles his finance, has also been arrested from Gurgaon in Haryana. Amritpal Singh has been booked under Arm’s Act.
It’s not clear what charges have been framed against WPD chief Amritpal Singh or in which case he is wanted. However, its is not ruled out that the massive crackdown may be in connection with incident that took place in the Ajnala Police Station on the outskirts of the Amritsar city. Amritpal alongwith his supporters had flaunted nacked swords and guns, broke through barricades. Singh and his gang had clashed with the police. six policemen including a Superintendent of Police rank officer had suffered injuries. The incident had attracted severe criticism for the Mann led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the state being accused of kowtowing to extremists.
Four of Amritpal Singh’s aides have been flown from Punjab to Dibrugarh in Assam, and kept in the Central Jail. The Punjab police is expected to hold a Press conference and divulge details.
However, the aides of Amritpal Singh, are reluctant to accept that their leader had been on the run and maintain that he is in the custody of the police and the police has been spreading a “deliberate” wrong message to mislead the Sikhs. One of the aide said, their leader has nothing to hide or run from as he had been saying and doing everything in the interest of the Sikh religion.
Rise of Amritpal Singh at a glance:
Amritpal Singh is the self-styled chief of the separatist Khalistani pressure group – ‘Waris Punjab De’
The radical leader hails from Jallupur village in Punjab’s Amritsar.
Till February 2022, he lived a normal life who was greatly influenced by the Western lifestyle and did not even wear a turban.
Transformation came in his life after returning from Dubai when he was appointed the head of WPD, founded by actor and activist Deep Sidhu after he was denied a stage by the protesting farmers’ unions. Sidhu had died in a road accident in February last year.
Things changed for Amritpal Singh, who decided to take the void left by Sidhu’s death and declared himself the new chief of Waris De Punjab. His family initially objected to Amritpal Singh’s takeover of the organisation.
Since then Amritpal Singh has directly challenging the administration flouting all the protocols. The man who calls himself a Khalistani sympathizer and a staunch supporter of terrorist Bhindranwale had been openly promoting his separatist agenda.
However, the prima facie reports reveal that Amritpal Singh has already fled outside India, in all probability, Amritpal Singh and three others including his uncle have fled to Nepalmand from there may be to some other country.
Shashi Kapoor, one of the most handsome faces of Indian cinema who has left an indelible mark with his acting and charm turns 85 on Saturday (today). Not just the Bollywood, but Shashi Kapoor earned immense love and adulation of the West with his numerous English films. Though the actor had predominantly attracted popularity with his cult Bollywood commercial films but he had also acted in a few serious and parallel films (to be discussed later in the story).
Kapoors had a strong affiliation with Kolkata and West Bengal ever since the days his father, Prithwiraj Kapoor, the doyen of Kapoor Khandan (as fondly called while referring to this iconic family also called the first cine family), began his career with the iconic New Theatres. In the due course of time, Shashi Kapoor, developed a fondness for Bengali cinema. Shashi Kappor shared a wonderful relationship with Great Master Satyajit Ray who had also penned a couple of scripts of Ivory films.
Kapoors since decades had been entertaining the masses – The journey began with Prithwiraj Kapoor fondly called ‘Papa Kapoor’ who passed on the legacy onto his sons Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor. They had passed on the legacy of ‘Kapoor Khandan’ subsequently to the next generation of Kapoors.
I recall first watching Shashi Kapoor on TV as we in our childhood was not much exposed to films like today’s generation but we had a great companion (if I may call so) and that was the television which was the ultimate platform for entertainment and many of us I am sure will agree that our schooling to cinema (whatever we have learnt or developed within) had began with this iconic “idiot box’ in early 80’s. Watching this actor on Chitrahaar, Sunday cinema and so on…I recall hearing him during the Film Festival when he had shared so many personal memories about his family, brothers and the cine industry. It was during one such interview Shashi Kapoor had said for him, the ultimate romantic hero was elder brother Shammi Kapoor with his westernized looks and acting. He had also said that “now watching my acting on screen, I feel ashamed as they look so childish” a confession from a real actor who was whimsical of his characters and perhaps this why Shashi Kapoor did not stay obsessed with the cult Commercial Cinema but acted in many parallel cinema and few experimental cinema (a wave that took cinema by its stride during early 70’s and late 80’s).
Shashi Kapoor and English films especially in British and American films, under the iconic Merchant Ivory productions run by Ismail Merchant and James Ivory that had been his second family as their association had grown stronger. Shashi Kapoor acted in numerous films under the banner like The Householder (1963), Shakespeare Wallah (1965) (opposite his sister-in-law Felicity Kendal), Bombay Talkie (1970) and Heat and Dust (1982) in which he co-starred with his wife Jennifer Kendal, The Deceivers (1988) and Side Streets (1998). Apart from Ivory productions, he had acted in other British and American films like ‘Matter Of Innocence’ (1967)), ‘Siddhartha’ (1972), ‘Sammy and Rosie Get Laid’ (1987), and Muhafiz (1994). James Ivory directed Kapoor in the first Merchant Ivory production The Householder, then in Shakespeare-Wallah, Bombay Talkie and Heat and Dust while Ismail Merchant directed him in In Custody (1993).
It was during late 50’s Shashi Kapoor met English actress Jennifer Kendal in then Calcutta now Kolkata. in 1956 while both were working for their respective theatre groups. Shashi was both assistant stage manager as well as an actor for his father’s theatre group, Prithvi Theatre. Geoffrey Kendal’s Shakespearean group was also present at the same time in Calcutta and Jennifer was Geoffrey’s daughter. They fell in love and after facing initial opposition from the Kendals got married to Jenifer in July 1958. Both of them had acted in a number of films together. In 1984, Jenifer Kendal died due to cancer. Shashi Kapoor loved Jenifer immensely and did not re-marry.
Both of them were blessed with three children – Kunal Kapoor (who had acted in Vijeta), Karan Kapoor (he too had acted in a few films like Loha and Saltanat but he is most remember for his modelling with Bombay Dying in 80’s) and daughter Sanjna (she too has acted in a few films like Hero Hiralal. She took charge of the Prithvi Theatre which was established on 5 November 1978 in Mumbai. In the recent years, we have Karishma (Lolo) and Karina (Bebo), daughters of Randhir Kapoor (Raj Kapoor’s son) and Ranbir Kapoor, son of another Kapoor superstar Late Rishi Kapoor rising to the top of popularity in Bollywood. Ranbir unlike his father, who had predominantly acted in Bollywood flicks have already acted in numerous serious and good cinema.
Being a true actor he showed guts and courage to criticize the typical Hindi cinema which had been showing things that had nothing to do with reality rather many impractical and abnormal things. It was this quest for good cinema Shashi Kapoor acted in films like – ‘Muhafiz’ (1994), ‘In Custody’ (1993), ‘Junoon’ (1978), ‘Utsav’ (1984) to name a few. Also he had produced many of these. He also produced 36 Chowringhee Lane (1981) directed by Aparna Sen. His wife Jenifer Kendal had done a wonderful acting in this film which revolves around a lonely Anglo lady residing in Kolkata who teaches conversation English in a reputed convent school in the city and subsequently gets cheated by her two ex-students whom she had trusted immensely. However, Aparna Sen bagged National Award for the film but Jenifer did not receive any award which had made him upset and he had shared his feelings in one of his interview on Doordarshan.
Shashi Kapoor had produced and directed a fantasy film titled Ajooba which was a Indo-Russian project and starred his frequent co-star Amitabh Bachchan and nephew Rishi Kapoor in the lead. The film however could not make money on the box-office.
It was this fondness for Shashi Kapoor, Great Master Satyajit Ray had taken him in Satyajit Ray Presents (directed by Sandip Ray for Doordarshan in 1985), “Kissa Kathmandu Ka” which was based on his Feluda adventure story – “Joto Kelenkari Kathmandu Te” and Shashi Kapoor played Feluda. As per the details of Feluda, Ray had always sketched him as a fitness freak and always slim and agile but Shashi Kapoor had put on weight and looked bulky. Still, Ray had casted him as Feluda in his production. This explains the relationship Shashi Kapoor shared with the Satyajit Ray.
He was not keeping well since long and had bid adieu to films in late 90’s with Side Streets being his last film. On 20 July 2012, Shashi Kapoor underwent a cataract surgery at Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. Shashi Kapoor was admitted in Kokilaben Hospital on December 3, 2017 reportedly for chest infection. On December 4, 2017, he breathed his last at around 5:30 pm. The famous lines from his film ‘Kala Parthar’ (1979), ‘ek rasta hai zindagi… jo tham gaye to kuch nahin…’ will be the most befitting lines to pay him tributes…
Nonsense Talk News pays its respects to this great actor and a wonderful man…
The Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that had been vocal against the liquor politics of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) since begining and had carried out protests, agitations and held regular Press conferences since last year has taked a step forward to expose the liquor mafias. On Friday (today), Delhi BJP launched a public awareness campaign by distributing leaflets at metro stations across Delhi to apprise Delhi-ites against the liquor scam. “It is the right of Delhiites to know the black role of Kejriwal in the liquor scam”, said Virendra Sachdeva, President Delhi BJP.
Leader of Opposition (LOP) in Delhi Assembly, Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, who had been vocal and regularly held Press conferences on the issue said, “All the BJP MLAs will demand resignation of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal before the Assembly sessions starts. Last year, Bidhuri had raised the issue of flouting Master Plan and demanded a reply from the Kejriwal government.
Liquor scam needs no introduction for Delhi-ites as people across Delhi NCR had witnessed the lawlessness that created havoc for city dwellers especially women who had face molestation, eve-teasing by anti-socials. Worst, a gang rape had taken place in East Delhi’s Vivek Vihar in February last year where the prime accused had been liquor mafias. Numerous shops, thekas opened across the city like mushroom. The Delhi government had allegedly tampered and flouted the Master Plan as in Delhi opening liquor shops are prohibited within 100 metres of religious, educational and residential establishments. Liquor shops were opened next to religious places, opposite educational institutions and below apartments or housings. Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor, Arvind Kejriwal had turned a deaf ear to the complaints of Delhi-ites. If this was not enough, the number of dry days were reduced to three from 22. Buy one, get one free schemes were introduced to appease drinkers and ruin households.
Virendra Sachdeva said that it is the right of the people of Delhi to know about the black role of the Kejriwal government in the liquor scam, and therefore the BJP has launched this public relations campaign so that the people of Delhi know the intention behind the liquor scam of Kejriwal and Sisodia. “People must know the motive of Kejriwal and Sisodia behind giving one free bottle, opening more and more liquor vends and then reducing the number of dry days”, added Sachdeva.
Arvind Kejriwal is directly involved in the scam worth thousands of crores and he cannot run away from his responsibility. He said that this movement of Delhi BJP will continue till Kejriwal resigns from his post.
Sachdeva said that the Kejriwal government has caused a loss of crores of rupees to the revenue of Delhi by scam in the new liquor policy, it is necessary to discuss it with the people because the tax payers of Delhi have the right to know as after all its their tax money people should know what did the Kejriwal government do with the money? He said that the people of Delhi have also understood that Kejriwal has done the work of intoxicating the youth of Delhi.
Ramvir Singh Bidhuri said, Manish Sisodia and Arvind Kejriwal have an important role not only in the liquor scam but also in the espionage case and the BJP has demanded that action should be taken against both the leaders by registering a sedition case.
BJP MP Dr Harsh Vardhan along with BJP Chandni Chowk District President Sardar Kuldeep Singh and other workers distributed leaflets outside Kashmir Gate Metro Station and made people aware about the liquor scam of Kejriwal government. State General Secretary Kuljeet Singh Chahal distributed leaflets with Shahdara District General Secretary Yashpal Cantura and BJP workers outside Laxminagar Metro Station and made people aware of the liquor scam of the Kejriwal government. Former State President Adesh Gupta along with Keshavpuram District BJP President Rajkumar Bhatia distributed leaflets outside Adarsh Nagar Metro Station and made people aware of the liquor scam of the Kejriwal government.
Political corridors in Delhi is brewing with immense agression as the opposition parties had been demanding a reply from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Parliament over what they call is giving a walkover to the Adani inspite of enough evidence of money laundering.
On Thursday, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) Chief Anil Chaudhary, staged a protest march outside Lieutenant Governor’s (LG) residence demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC). Speaking to the Press, DPCC Chief said, “Why the government is finding it so difficult to constitute a JPC, we are not saying or accusing BJP but asking a probe into the allegations of the Adani”. “Does that mean Adani and BJP are same?”, added Chaudhary.
Anil Chaudhary made series of tweets demanding JPC.
Parliament has been witnessing a logjam for fourth consecutive day and over the demand of a JPC. However, some of the parties especially like the Trinamool and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) who are shouting for JPC has already lost it’s face in West Bengal and Delhi respectively, after the Encouragement Directorate (ED) had unearthed crores of unaccounted assets from their top leaders including ministers. None other than Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is facing charges of money laundering and helping the liquor mafias to open shops and thekas in Delhi.
“बड़े शहर की एक गली में बसा हुआ है नुक्कड़… नुक्कड़ के सारे बाशिंदे तकदीरों के फक्कड़ …” Does these lines churn the ‘nostalgia’ and take you back to late 80’s when we all say glued to our television sets on Mondays at 9pm to watch ‘Nukkad’? I am sure it does especially those of us who have had the privilege of watching some remarkable teke-serials on then Doordarshan. Not double meaning or filthy storylines like the K series but clean and healthy family oriented dramas, well melodramas too. Some have left an indelible mark and ‘Nukkad’ happens to one of them. After Dilip Dhawan (Guru), Sameer Khakhar, the man who played the iconic character of ‘Khopdi’, is no more. The actor was admitted to a Mumbai hospital with multiple organ failure. He was 71.
Nukkad had been one of the most popular serial during late 80’s. Like all Ajiz Mirza-Kundan Shah productions, this too was clean family drama. The serial spoke of characters that depicted the common man and woman have to fight with circumstances daily and if he or she is lucky to beat the stress and smile for once, the next moment waits to take back the happiness. Yet, people smile and accept the inevitable.
Shot in a simple backdrop of ‘Nukkad’, each member had his or her own story to tell and share. Guru, Ghansu bhikhari, Tambi, Qadir Bhai, Ganpat, Teacherji and many more. Sameer Kakhar better known as ‘Khopdi’, the all time drunkard who would make us laugh with his jokes, mannerism but each had a deep underlined message that would slap the social structure or society.
Khakhar had acted in a number of serials including – Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Circus’ (1989). Apart from Circus, he acted in ‘Shrimaan Shrimati’ (1994). He has acted in the following films – Kamal Haasan’s ‘Pushpak’ (1987), Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor-led ‘Parinda’ (1989), Ajay Devgn and Suniel Shetty’s ‘Dilwale’ (1994), Salman Khan-starrer ‘Jai Ho’ (2014), Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra’s ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ (2014), Sudhir Mishra-directorial ‘Serious Men’ (2020). Khakhar also made an OTT debut in Vikas Bahl’s web series ‘Sunflower’.
Down the memory lane:
Guru (aka Raghunath) played by Dilip Dhawan, the first of the gang to bid adieu to the world. His character was of an electrician but the only level headed who would also act as the crisis manager in Nukkad.
Hari played by Pawan Malhotra who later acted in many films including Bag Bahadur. He played the character of a humble cycle repair mechanic.
Kaderbhai, the tea shop owner, played by Avtar Gill who even served snacks to poor residents of Nukkad for free.
Kundu Mochi, Somesh Agarwal who played the ‘mochi’ (cobler).
Karim Hajaam, the barber played by Javed Khan.
Teacherji, played by Rama Viz who tries to teach everyone the way to stay happy and contended in life is by staying simple and honest. However, both Guru and Maria (Teacherji) love each other but never dares to express.
Radha, the domestic maid, played by Sangeeta Naik, who like all human loves to dream and bask in romance with Hari but is unhappy as Hari loves another girl in Nukkad.
Ganpat Havaldar, played by Ajay Wadhavkar. A friend of the people residing in Nukkad.
Apart from them many more character like – Dukhiya shayar (aks Dukhiya Chandigarhi) played by Sudesh Chatwal, Ghanshu Bhikari (aka Ghanshyam), the beggar, played by Suresh Bhagwat, Chaurasia Paanwala, Shreechand Makhija, paanwala with a paan-beedi shop next to Kaderbhai’s restaurant, Dagdu Jamadar, the sweeper who works in the municipality.
Trinamool Supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s niece Brishti Mukherjee loses her Group C staff member job at Bolpur Upper Primary School after her name featured on 608th position in the list of names for cancellation of jobs as ordered by the Calcutta HC.
Brishti Mukherjee who hails from Birbhum’s Kusumba village, the CM’s maternal home, was allegedly appointed “illegally” as a non-teaching staff member by the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC).
When asked her father, Nihar Mukherjee, refuted all the allegations and informed that her daughter Brishti, had joined the school but only for a day or two and left the job. He also said that her daughter did not draw any salary. Well, there are numerous missing links in the story. One, if Brishti left the job in 2012 or 13 then how come her name surface in the list now? Two, if Brishti and her father is speaking truth then how come there is no documented proof of her resignation? Three, why Brishti herself is not much vocal about the allegations hurled at her? draw salary too.
It’s too early to comment who is wrong or who is pretending to be naive. If the allegations come out to be true then both Supremo and nephew will have to answer many bitter questions no matter if they are “choto ghotona” (petty incident) for them.
