She was. We all thought her fight on communists made her realise that the ways of communists are bad. But we were wrong. She adopted the same ways of murders and what not. She added open support to Jihadis to that. She also failed to control even the violence of her own party.

Only things that can save her is Muslim vote bank and goonda power. There is nothing else that can help her in the next elections.

Don't care whose son he is: PM Modi condemns Akash Vijayvargiya's bat attack
PM Modi, who was adsressing the BJP Parliamentary Party meet in New Delhi, expressed his anger over the Akash Vijayvargiya incident.

Kailash Vijayvargiya is the observer of Bengal BJP. Not sure how much this will affect the morale of Bengal BJP workers who are up in arms (sometimes literally) against the state administration.

They may be given quasi jobs in GoWB itself is possible. It is the same paid workers Jagan is trying to create in AP. This is the Evangelical program of creating a large army of paid conversion workers with incentives etc for each conversion.

Let us see what is the plan of Nitishwa in all this. Since when a senior party functionary of one party is actively help a party which want to defeat his own party's alliance partner.

If there is Religious Polarisation, then an important statistic would be number of seats with more than 20% RoP votes, which is = 125 seats out of 294.

Gadhari of Nitishwa is on expected lines. He did not change his colors and only used BJP to keep his chair. BJP was not keep on taking the risk in Bihar and wanted to keep him in NDA for the time being.

Revisiting Sainbari, a blot on Indian Democracy: When Communists made a mother eat rice with her dead sons’ blood
https://www.opindia.com/2019/07/revisit ... ons-blood/
It is also an indictment of the moral bankruptcy of the Nehru-Gandhi Parivar that they abandoned one of their staunch supporters for political gains. It’s not surprising considering the fact that Democracy makes the elites of a nation completely unaccountable to the people they rule over. While the masses fight among each other, the ruling class of different political parties wine and dine with each other without feeling the weight of the burden that leadership is supposed to entail.

Worst of all, political violence in the state continues to this day. Mothers are being robbed of their sons, wives of their husbands, sisters of their brothers under Mamata Banerjee’s rule as well. Women are being raped because their husbands political affiliation does not align with the ruling establishment. Doctors are attacked by a mob and the Police doesn’t act because the perpetrators belong to a community that is the ruling party’s vote-bank. How is any of this any different from a malevolent dictatorship?

It’s an indictment of Feminists and liberals as well who clamour for women empowerment. They have crowned Mamata Banerjee a Queen for her opposition towards Narendra Modi and the BJP. The protests by doctors of the state have opened the eyes of some of them and yet, in the run up to the elections, when families were still being destroyed while the ruling establishment made no effort to stop them as it helped them politically, the Feminists and the liberals hailed Mamata Banerjee as a ‘street-fighter’.

As expected, Bengal leads where it matters the most:

'Intolerance' Lobby Back: Anurag Kashyap, Aparna Sen & 47 Others Write To PM Modi; Claim 'Jai Shri Ram Now A Provocative War-cry'

Hack:
  • Around 49 celebrities across all professions in the likes of Bollywood, theatres, historians, and painters have written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi
  • The letter claims that the intolerance in the country under the rule of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)]

Meanwhile:

Watch, how TMC goons beat up a professor and female students for refusing to chant 'Mamata Banerjee Zindabaad'.

Will Mamata Banerjee explain this horrendous act by her party workers?

People of Bengal are fed up of this anarchy and violence.

I would like some one to go thru the seat by seat data of recent polls in Bengal.

What I am interested is of the ~7 MLA seats/MP seat who many would TMC retain?
And how many would BJP win?
And how many are toss ups?
Say 10 days?

Mamta Banoo is under tremendous pressure. Within 24 hours she called the professor in Konnagar College and apologized to hi, The local MLA visited him and apologized. Those two "students" assaulted him have been apprehended by the police - all within 24 hours. This is unprecedented, and wouldn't have happened before May 23rd.

That is correct. I heard that the figure is close to 128. This has given Bengal BhaJaPa new energy to make more headways.
Some recent developments are startling. The biggest PR exercise in Bengal is fast approaching, that is the Durga Puja season. This is the time the political heavy weights make their real campaigning for the rest of the year. Pretty much every political leader - left, right, center, - big or small, has one or few puja committees / clubs / associations under pocket. Till last year, pretty much 80% of the puja committees / clubs / associations hobnobbed with the TMC leaders. However, there has been a sea change. Many prominent puja committees in Kolkata have dumped TMC leaders, and courting BhaJaPa netas. This is unheard of. Till last year, Bengali 'Bhadraloks'
(gentlemen) avoided BhaJaPa's shadow, lest they get branded as "communal" (and hence might had gotten looked down). But now, puja committee 'Bhadraloks' are making a beeline for the BhajaPa leaders and chanting 'Jai Sri Ram'.

Apparently AS has instructed the state leaders to make the best of this season for the coming assembly election. He has specifically instructed the state leaders to get in touch with small and medium sized puja committees, and give them financial incentives. The calculation is simple. The small and medium organizers always grumbled that the larger puja committees get lion's share of funding from the TMC leaders, and hence make use of that grudge to the fullest extent. The state leaders are planning to bring AS, and if possible NM, to help inaugurate some prominent pujas in the state. Till a decade and half ago, the Puja festivity used to start on Panchami, and the political leaders got busy from that day, - some of them inaugurated 15 to 20 pujas at various mandaps. But now, the number of pujas have gone up, and the festivity starts from Prathama (the day after Mahalaya Amavashaya). The state BhaJaPa leaders are scheduling their PR campaign from Prathama day.

Lately, the state BhaJaPa has started organizing the minorities, and they are staging protest rallies in several minority dominated areas. This has rattled TMC leadership to no end. In Bitbhum, Bankura and West Midnapore districts minority rallies have been organized to protest against police highhandedness. TMC is blaming BhaJapa for instigating minorities through newly formed shadow minority organizations. .....

Let's how how far it goes. We are in an interesting time.

PK's playbook.

'Didi ke bolo': TMC launches helpline, announces massive outreach programme

TMC leaders will be spending nights in blocks to increase connect.

Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Monday announced a mega outreach plan to increase grassroot connect of the party. The decision to undertake 'modernisation' of TMC comes soon after Prashant Kishor was roped in to device election strategy. The Trinamool Congress was jolted by BJP in the last Lok Sabha elections and its seats were reduced from 34 to 22. Bengal CM however said that this is not an election campaign but a campaign to reach out to common people.

Don't think so. They have tried to "enter" everywhere else, and they are still stuck with 2 MPs. Mullees will vote only to them who will pose an opposition to Bhajpa, hence even CPIM Congoons with decades of competitive appeasement between them are not making the cut.

I had to comment on this because it is so utterly inappropriate for a State Governor to whine like this.

He is a State Governor. If someone insults the Office of the Governor, the response should be a jhapad, not a public :(( I mean, to say "

His voice quaking, the Governor said he was "speaking out of my injured heart" and could even cry.""For four hours or more I was there and your press coverage was totally blacked out... Not for a second was the first servant shown on TV. What happened has put me to shame because no person in Bengal will approve of it."


er... if I were a voter/taxpayer in WB, I would commend the state TV for not wasting my time showing mugshots of the Governor. Focus instead on Preeti whatzit, owner of Kolkotta krikit team.

He is not a baby.
So why is he doing it? Is he really that far gone, or is it the setting for a MAJOR Jhapad against WB CM goon squad, now that Cashmore is Naarmal?

Its building the narrative. Relax everything is staged.

BTW the horrific triple murder of Mondal family where the father, pregnant mother and young son were murdered in Murshidabad is being covered up by Bengal Police. They are trying to make it into a Hindu on Hindu violence.

After #JihaDidi is defeated these police officers who fix things for here will be taken to task.
