Re: West Bengal - news and strategy thread

Rupa was ok but Locket is a fighter. I am not particularly enthused with Rahul Sinha and seems the BJP leadership agrees since his wings have been clipped and Dilip Ghosh made the general few years ago. He is a street fighter of the mamata banerjee mould and much of the credit for this turnaround g...

Re: West Bengal - news and strategy thread

He is no Dilip Ghosh / Babul Supriyo. He has a kid and family. It would be difficult for him to venture out. Saurav Ganguly is too soft for politics. Moreover, he is hand in glove with didi. I would not necessarily agree to that. He was very close to the left leaders though. Yes, on a few freak occ...
