Please guide the present young generation to a violence free politics of coordination and cooperation with all politcal parties for the betterment of West Bengal.

By supporting heinous crime of Maoist she has amply proved her intention clearly . She is out to destroy all cultural values of highly placed Bengal . She can become a MAO or Hitler as the time demands . She is a true chameleon.

A capitalist style policy with least government interventions and restrictios while setting and enforcement of rules and regulations, a strong police force, a commitment towards preserving private property, tax credits for charity by the industries, an environmental policy, building schools both at the primary level as well as vocational level, and a better understanding of the workings of a capitalist system namely USA.

What does it mean Mr. Dhar? May be she (Banerjee) is an honest politician. But, I really don’t think she has that capability to rise from the ashes and become a brand ambassador of the state. But yes, she’s got support in past few elections as the ruling communists have miserably failed in their mission to industrialise the state. And another factor, the Congress-Trinamool alliance, really clicked this time and the April-May general election saw a marginal swing in the opposition vote. It made the whole difference.To be very frank with you my friend, the most unfortunate part of our state is that all politicians here gamble with the interests of common people. Nobody bothers about the economic betterment. They utilise people and their sentiments and finally, when everything is done, they just throw them off (as and when they come to power). If we just cudgel our brain and recall, the communist exactly did the same thing before coming to the government more than three decades ago. Their militant trade unionism ruined the prospect of state’s whole economy and it simply changed people’s attitude towards work.Mamata Banerjee, single-handedly, can do nothing. She is, unfortunately and as usually, surrounded by all opportunists who will never allow her to perform for the interests of common people.I am sorry, but that’s the fate of West Bengal today. I feel pity for all my friends and foes here. All I can do is – I wish them luck.

Even if the points on land acquisition in Singur raised by her were right, she, perhaps, bungled in execution and in the process naxal elements got control over the protests.Though having emerged as the face of opposition in West Bengal, it was her idiosyncracies that pulled her down time and again. Perhaps she has learnt her political lessons and one hopes she will keep her balance going into the assembly elections in the state in 2011.
