Politics makes strange equationsAlmost all of us know that the state has been burning. There was a terrible riot in Asansol-Raniganj when Ram Navami procession was attacked and bombed. Five people died due to violence and the state government, as usual, blamed the people who participated in the procession. But that was around ten days ago.
During the violence, the chief minister was in Delhi and trying to forge an alliance among all self-seeking opposition parties against the ruling party in the center. She didn't visit the affected areas and didn't allow others to visit those areas.
Now the process of filing nominations for the next Panchayat election is going on in the state. There has been unprecedented violence. The administration and police are mute spectators. The condition is so terrible that all the opposition parties in the state [BJP, Congress and CPI(M)] are forced to fight the violence unitedly. But the most astonishing aspect is that the Congress leader and lawyer, Abhishek Manu Singhvi is defending the state government when his party is fighting against state-sponsored terror with rival BJP.
The equations being developed in the state of West Bengal are really unsolvable!
