HIT­TING THE BOT­TLE

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

It doesn’t pay to pick a fight with the West Bengal Chief Min­is­ter. The Di­a­mond Bot­tling Plant Com­pany of Dish­er­garh, near Asansol, found out the hard way when they placed an ad­ver­tise­ment in lo­cal news­pa­pers on Novem­ber 6, us­ing the Chief Min­is­ter’s pho­to­graph to an­nounce the foun­da­tion cer­e­mony. Ban­er­jee found the em­bar­rass­ment too much and got the fa­ther-son pro­mot­ers of the plant, Kallol and Kri­pan Mukher­jee, ar­rested by the po­lice for not tak­ing per­mis­sion from her of­fice. The duo have been re­manded to 14 days in jail cus­tody. We don’t know what has be­come of Law Min­is­ter and lo­cal MLA Moloy Ghatak who was the chief guest at the cer­e­mony.
