I want to keep this post short. Being one of the million(s) of voters of TMC+ to bring it to power… This is what I feel after the epic win of the TMC+ in West Bengal elections.
I want more leaders visible in TMC. I want Mamta Bannerjee to be in the centre continuing as the railway minister, fulfilling all her promises made in the last few budgets. This will not only pose her a strong leader in herself, but also strengthen her relations at Delhi, as a responsible and consistent leader.
Moreover, the kind of Bengal I expect to have down the line, I wish Amit Mitra to be the next Chief minister, if not now, after few years or term. He was FICCI’s member. He’s the ex-secretary general of FICCI, and currently in Manmohan Singh’s planning commission, and perhaps the strongest face of intellectual Bengal’s face who can be diplomatic as well as efficient in handling the media,and its time TMC show more leaders and get ahead of just mamata bannerjee.
When Sonia Gandhi, paved way for Dr Manmohan Singh to be the Prime Minister of India in , the young me was shocked. But never the less, it was the right decision to be made. I wish Mamta Bannerjee follows similar fashion. Not that she is inefficient, but she must stay committed to the Ministry of Railways, and the CM must exhibit Economics to people who ask him of that. Only a clean undisputed, good hearted, decent, simple image is just not enough. And one person should not pose greater than the entire team… or the government per say.
