When Bengal means business as usualWith much fanfare, the Bengal Global Business Summit will be organized on 7th-8th February 2019 at Kolkata. We will be able to listen to many initiatives and will see many rosy pictures through different statistics. Many industrialists will deliver their speeches and the CM of West Bengal will give all of them a good company. After all these, everything will remain the same. While travelling in the city, I have seen the billboards with a smiling face of the CM Mamata Banerjee at many places. It is boldly mentioned there #BENGALMEANSBUSINESS. I am amazed this time.
The same CM was sitting in a dharna along with the police commissioner and other police officials from 3rd-5th February 2019 at central Kolkata. Her way of speaking at those sit-in demonstrations is known to all. Yet, she will be hosting the notable industrialists. The image she has created for herself and the state is truly pitiable. We are living in one country consisting of many states. Everybody expects a cordial relationship between the state and centre despite political differences. If she always behaves in this fashion with every central government, who is going to cooperate with her in the near future? Even office colleagues do not cooperate with another quarrelsome colleague. Will she ever change her attitude? I wonder!
