Trinamool to apprise people of its work after 11-years of rule; no mention of ‘Didir Doot’, Sathi-Sree schemes

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.

Mamata Banerjee terms ED probe vindictive, still eyes PM’s chair; are people fool?

Perhaps, the only option left now for Trinamool Supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to fulfill her aspirations of becoming Prime Minister ahead of 2024 General Elections is to find alliance with neighbouring Bihar and Jharkhand. On Thursday, Banerjee said, she will join hands with these states to oust Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from power in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.

“I, Nitish Kumar, Hemant Soren and many others will come together in 2024. All opposition parties will join hands to defeat the BJP. All of us will be on one side and the BJP on the other. The BJP’s arrogance of 300 seats will be its nemesis. There will be Khela Hobe’ in 2024”, said Banerjee.

Mamata Banerjee has herself ruined her position. She may try to show that Partha Chatterjee, Anubrata mandol, and likes will not oput any dent on the vote bank of the party but fact is people in the state (barring the ‘bhakts’) are quite apprehensive of her winning. Bengalies who had elected her to power in 2011, are already cursing themselves, “khub bhul korechi aamraa Trinamool ke ene, bujhte parini je era eram korbe…” (We are really repenting for bringing Trinamool to power, honestly, we did not understand that they would play this game with us…) said, a co-passenger on auto enrouted to Behala from Rashbihari Avenue in Kolkata on the condition of anonymity.

If this was not enough then a shopkeeper in Gariahat, Kolkata said, “aamraa lal r shomai onek bhaalo chilam, Trinamool amader kono bhaalo koreni. ja ja bolechilo ekta kothao rakheni… eder shobtai mithey r opor dariye…” (We were good still during the CPI(M) era as Trinamool said a lot but did not keep a single word. They rest on lies …).

This is not alien, you talk to anybody across Bengal and they will share their plight. The problem is Banerjee has time to hold Press conferences, events, jalsa but hardly finds time anymore to reach out to the masses. This is why people are drifting apart from her.

Pity! Even after the shameful revelation that her her close confidant Partha Chatterjee had not only allegedly did money laundering but had gifted to his numerous girlfriends, spoecial being Arpita Mukherjee. Her “Keshta’ (Krishna), Anubarata Mandol too stands exposed. What does Banerjee think? People in Bengal are fool. She must remember that if people in the state could elect her to power then they can also throw her party out of power. The biggest example was Nandigram where she boasted of winning the seat against Suvendu Adhikari but had lost the elections and had to seek re polling from her jome turf Bhawanipore.

Enough to make people understand the charisma Banerjee had is gone and people are in nomood to beleive in her blind folded, the fall of Trinamool is evident… and this no “choto ghotona” (small incident), “sajano ghotona” (concocted incident).
