Considering the kind of appeasement politics that’s being played in Bengal, only a few sane voices have been left to be heard.
This is the state where once the left coalition won in the name of opposing Congress. They are partners in the state today.
Once the left coalition was ousted, Mamta didi came to power. Her appeasement to a particular community is again causing unrest in the state.
Somehow the electorate has few, if any options.
Responding to the question of why the voters still vote for Mamta, a known Hindutwa supporter Tapan Ghosh says :
I cannot give long answers to all questions put by all of you. You can see my support to communal appeaser Mamata. BUT you cannot see the absence of ‘credible alternative’ of her.
Do you prefer CPM to come back? If yes, fine.
If not, then, are you aware of ground realities of Bengal BJP? Perhaps not.
I SAY, Bengal BJP is not capable to capture power here at least in next 10 years.
If BJP starts work from today with dedication, sacrifice, courage, commitment, and most importantly, a SOLID, CREDIBLE, BOLD, ATTRACTIVE LEADER – then only you can dream of capturing power in 2026.
You do that. I wish you. BUT my concern is this 10 year period – 2016 to 2026.
What will be the condition of Hindus in entire Murshidabad, Malda and North Dinajpur dist, and in major parts of the districts of North & South 24 Parganas, Nadia, Howrah, Hooghly, East Medinipur, Birbhum, Bardhaman, South Dinajpur and Coochbehar during this period?
After 10 years Hindus in those areas will be in no position to fight back.
May I ask you – what you people are doing concrete for the protection of Hindus?
Only voting for BJP and giving free opinions? Anything else?
How many affected Hindus, victim of Muslim atrocities go to you, approach you for help?
Can you help them by giving them hope of BJP’s coming to power in 2026?
I cannot. I have to do something for those hapless Hindu victims.
Therefore ‘free criticism’ of Mamata Banerjee is not any option for me. You have that option.
