West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her party Trinamool Congress are in trouble after the corruption of recently sacked West Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee was exposed. Partha Chatterjee, accused in this corruption case, has now been arrested and is in the custody of ED. Investigation is going on. Trinamool expelled Parth not only from the cabinet but also from the party. But despite all this, the question is, can Mamata Banerjee handle this situation?
When the information about this corruption was leaked, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) dedicated to investigating the financial scams of India entered the field. Arpita Mukherjee, who is known as Perth’s ‘girlfriend’, recovered gold, jewelry and foreign currency worth Rs 50 crore from Taliganj and Belgharia residences. After this incident, there were demands for Mamata’s immediate resignation.
However, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee herself has come down to cover the wounds of corruption. Apart from this, Abhishek Banerjee, nephew of Mamata and All India General Secretary of Trinamool Congress.
Starting with the incident of giving jobs to many others due to party influence instead of giving jobs to the candidates who passed the school teacher recruitment test. Candidates who passed the 2017 job examination spoke against it. They started a movement to demand their jobs immediately. In view of this, they started a sit-in movement at the foot of the Gandhi statue of Dharmatala, Kolkata, demanding jobs. That movement passed 502 days yesterday on Friday.
Abhishek Banerjee held a meeting with the protestors yesterday as part of the coverage after the Perth corruption case. He called the representatives of the job seekers staying at Dharmatala to discuss the job. State Education Minister Bratya Basu was also present in this meeting called for delegates. There Abhishek-Bratya discussed about the job of the candidates who passed the job test. After the discussion, he told reporters that they are happy with this discussion. Reviews have been positive. Abhishek-Bratya promised 100% job guarantee. One of the leaders of the delegation. Shahidullah said, “We will wait for the job. We will surely be happy if we get a job.
However, the opposition criticized the meeting and the government’s promises to the job seekers. According to them, can Abhishek give any job guarantee?
BJP state president Sukanta Majumdar said that the Trinamool or the West Bengal government may not understand the difference between the government and the party. In fact, it is a conspiracy to break the movement of job seekers.
State CPM secretary Mohammad Salim said that giving institutional recognition to unconstitutional matters is the work of Trinamool. Such incidents have happened in the past as well.
There has been so much corruption today because the recruitment discussions took place in the party office.
The flexible attitude of the Trinamool is evident in this activity of calling the job aspirants during the dharna and listening to them. Besides this, the activities of reorganizing the cabinet have started again. He has called a special meeting for this next Monday.
Political analysts believe that the number of members in the cabinet may increase. For this, the activities of legislators are being evaluated. It is said that only those who are not accused of corruption can be called to the cabinet. The Trinamool camp feels that it can prevent extreme defamation of the party in Partha scandal.
Earlier, Trinamool stood for the party’s accused persons in Sarada and Nardakande. There were even processions in many places of West Bengal including Kolkata. But this time nothing happened. However, despite indicating support towards Perth in the beginning, Trinamool changed its strategy after seeing the situation. As part of this, the Cabinet decided to drop this important member and expel him from the party. But as a result, BJP leader Shamik Bhattacharya thinks that the true face of the Trinamool party has come out. According to him, many Parths like Parth are at the grassroots. This corruption is an organized crime. It has grass roots.
