Re: West Bengal - news and strategy thread

Mamata is taking calculated risk. If this strike prolongs then doctors will start losing sympathy. Better center gov through the governor intervene now. There is a flip side too. Mamata-Banoo has proved herself to be a huge liability for the other opposition parties. No other parties (AAP, SP, BSP,...
