A growing number of people including political leaders say Bengal is burning almost everywhere. In the north there is intense Gorkhaland agitation a recent development, but the state due to intense minority appeasement is seeing communal riots in succession. Houses and shops are burned, people are displayed and Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee either blames her political opponents or claims that the situation is peaceful. The media till recently was maintaining total silence (you could argue selectively) to avoid worsening the situation. Things are so bad that the Mamata did not allow the Governor of the State to speak to the state’d DGP – Director General of Police. So can Mamata restore peace in the state, has she lost all credibility, can she be trusted, have things gotten out of control? Under these conditions, it might be best for Mamata to take responsibility and resign.

Nitish Kumar’s Bihar government have gifted MLAs lavish gifts including microwave ovens costing only Rupees 30 lakhs for “doing their job” (whatever that means). Each department including the education department is taking turns during the ongoing budget session. At the same time, the state government is not able to pay salaries of its teachers for lack of funds. May be the contradiction makes sense to the chief minister and his ministers, but the public at large has been left wondering?

Ministers of the ruling Congress party have done some unexpected things to their government officials. Recently, the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was caught on camera slapping a senior district commissioner. Then we hear one of their ministers after speaking with a Lady Police Officer for 42 seconds called back and when the phone was not answered, got her transferred. Also doing the rounds is Bar dancers performer for jailers and inmates in a jail. So it is anybody’s guess what could happen next, but hardly anyone is looking forward to it.

UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav fired UP’s Minister of State Ompal Nehra because he appealed to help build rebuild a Ram temple in Ayodhya and in Mathura. One reason for this is to build bridges between communities. A question for all: if the reverse had happened such as example say Asam Khan another UP minister asking Hindus or Sikhs to build a masjid, would they have been sacked? Very unlikely for sure.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announce on 18th September that immersion of Durga Idols has been banned on the 23rd and 24th of October throughout West Bengal. The restriction on immersion of Idols on those two days is because the dates clash with Muharram. This is both shocking and unfortunate since in Bangladesh where Hindus which are a minority community did not see any such restrictions.
