One of the world’s oldest surviving communist governments has crashed out in India

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has been ruling West Bengal for 34 years but last night fell to what the Indian media is calling a “tsunami” – 56-year-old Mamata Banerjee who leads the Trinamool Congress.
Nicknamed Didi or sister by her followers, she’s known as a firebrand orator.
''We will establish democracy, not party-curacy,'' she told supporters outside her simple home in one of the oldest districts of Kolkata.
''This is like the second freedom of Bengal.''
In a colorful account marking the history of the occasion, the Times of India referred to the gathering at CPM headquarters in Alimuddin Street in the state capital formally known as Calcutta.
''The roar ripped into the CPIM party office, which had fallen into a funereal silence,'' the newspaper said.
''The Alimuddin Street apparatchik, far removed from reality, sat in isolated ones and twos, unable to comprehend Force Mamata. All their giants had toppled….''
It said CPIM’s chairman Biman Bose responded in a way which showed why his party deserved to lose.
''His manner was arrogant, his replies curt, even dismissive, and his entire take on the historic defeat was that the Left Front's ‘assessment had been wrong’.''
Added the Times: ''It nailed the end of 34 years of communist rule, and heralded a change from the stifling status quo.''

  2. Respected Sir/Madam,
    On behalf of Railway Employees of JOC-BURN section in Adra Div. of South Eastern Railway, we are lodging this complain against Mr. Deep Chatterjee (DTI (Line)), Adra, SE Railway.
    This person (Mr. Deep Chatterjee) has secured this position neither by qualification nor by clearing any examination procedure of Railway Recruitment Board (RRB). He was appointed as a gang man and was then was illegally promoted to this designation of DTI, step-by-step, by CPI (M) MP, Mr. Basudeb Acharya. Mr. Deep’s brother in law being the PA of Mr. Basudeb Acharya helps him get the illegal advantage and misuses his position and power to provide ample support to him (Mr. Deep Chatterjee).
    Since long, we have been facing oppressive behavior from this person, and now as we have reached the brink of our patience and are compelled to lodge this complain. This person has been badly harassing us by -
    • Not granting us leave in spite of the LR being free and available.
    • He shows a virtual staff crisis situation and compels us to report sick.
    • Hurting our sentiments by using foul and dirtiest of slang languages.
    • Making disrespectful statements towards each and every staff member, be it his juniors or seniors.
    • Threatening us by saying “I am very powerful and I can do anything, I can even take away your job!”
    • Disturbs mental peace while performing our duty, thereby endangering railway safety.

    No justice has been done to us even after complaining the matter to our Sr.DOM (Divisional Operational Manager) .He behaves like a puppet in the hands of Mr.Deep and acts according to his words because from Sr. DOM to DRM (Divisional Railway Manager), no one wants to be the grudge of the MP (Mr. Basudeb Acharya). Not only us, other employees of railways such as the Guards, Drivers, Signal Staffs and PWI staffs etc. are also annoyed with his rude and tyrannical behavior.
    During the rule of the LEFT FRONT we never expected justice to be served to us but with the changeover to TMC under the guidance of our beloved ‘Didi’ (Ms. Mamta Banerjee), we expect some help from our Honorable Railway Minister Mr. Mukul Roy for some notable and proper assessment of this situation and want to get rid of this torture of Mr. Deep Chatterjee.

    We, therefore fervently request your honor to investigate the matter and save us from this nightmarish oppression of Mr. Deep, so that we can do our work properly as independent employees of Indian Railways and serve our nation, INDIA, in a much better way.
    Thanking you,
    Yours faithfully,
    Railway Employees
    JOC-BURN section, Adra Div, South Eastern Railway
