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.
