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.

Is Kejriwal trying to say Delhi-ites happy with liquor shops mushrooming? Does he interact with people?

Ever since the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has initiated a 15-hour raid at the residence of Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister and close confidant of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, he has become vocal on trying to prove he and his party is holy cow. Really? Why was he silent when people were requesting him to change the excise policy that saw opening of liquor shops across Delhi. The BJP had accused Delhi government of flouting city’s Master Plan to accommodate liquor mafias open shops having educational and religious institutions within the 100 metre redius.

Today, we hear the CM making a reaction on the liquor allegations but we did not hear a single word when a 20-year-old was gang-raped, tonsured, garlanded with slippers and paraded with a blackened face in the Kasturba Nagar area in the national capital. She was attacked by a a group of people, including women, who chopped off her hair, tore her clothes, blackened her face. The woman was also allegedly sexually assaulted. The accused were found to be illicit liquor sellers residing in the area.

Women safety is what Delhi CM always boasts off but he never cared to listen to the plight of women who had requested Kejriwal to roll back on his liquor policy and remove the shops from residential areas. They had expressed fear of anti-social elements becoming powerful creatingh mess across the city. Kejriwal never paid any heed but he offered ‘buy one get one free’ scheme. I had myself met people while reporting on the issue and found both men and women across Delhi fuming. During opening of a liquor shop bang opposite Maharaja Agrasen College, in Govindpuri, south Delhi, I interacted with a group of senior citizen sitting on an indefinite dharna who said they would like to teach Kejriwal a lesson for disturbing the peace and calm in the area. Locals had expressed concerns about the safety and security of females.

On Thursday, today, Kejriwal along with his party members paid a visit to Raj Ghat, Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial. He accused the BJP of trying to topple his government. He said BJP needs 40 MLAs and it has kept Rs 800 crore to achieve this. Why does he have to do a photo opp at Raj Ghat to prove BJP was trying to implicate the ‘holy cow’ government into false cases.

The problem is people in Delhi have lost the trust they had ushered in Kejriwal due to various reasons that shattered the image of Delhi government.
