Soon after Time magazine featured her in their exclusive 100 most influential list, Washington Post went ahead and called her the biggest (note the compliment – BIGGEST!) obstacle to India’s liberalization.
India’s ‘elder sister’: Mamata Banerjee is a rising force in Indian politics, and the biggest obstacle to its economic liberalization.
Mamata Di, you are world famous!
And now, she claims that people are out to kill her! How/ Well this is how she says it is
Last month a Jadavpur University professor had circulated an email with a cartoon. She claims that the cartoon was decomposed (I think she probably wanted to say morphed. Politicians are allowed some grammar leniency). And in that cartoon the term “Vanish” was used. Which she implies vanishing of herself and ultimately murder!
[Chemistry professor Ambikesh Mahapatra circulated the e-mail, which borrowed the word “vanish” from a piece of dialogue in Satyajit Ray's celluloid masterpiece Sonar Kella. Bongs will know everything about the movie. And everyone knows about Satyajit Ray. So I sincerely hope that next Didi does not accuse them of being a part of the conspiracy now!]
Mamata Banerjee says that her arch rival CPM wishes to harm her and assassinate her. “They have given me the death sentence, and every day they are spreading this superimposed photo, on Facebook, on Internet or in the e-mail, through some false, camouflaged name,” she had told the US daily when asked about the arrest of a Kolkata professor who had mocked at her in a cartoon. Rejecting the allegation, CPM leader Sitaram Yechury had said there cannot be anything more ridiculous than Mamata making such a claim.
Last week, Banerjee sparked more controversy by walking out of a televised debate with students in Kolkata, after fielding some uncomfortable questions from the audience.
Seems like she is mega obsessed with CPM!
The girl who was blatantly tagged as a Maoist has in retort published this open letter “Sorry Ma’am, but I am not a Maoist – Open letter to chief minister ” in The Telegraph
Continuing her winning streak, Mamata Di brought home the IPL trophy. [On this note, I would like to apologize to our readers for not covering then IPL 5 matches. We decided to give cricket a break ]. Congratulations Didi!
