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.
