Ma­mata Mad­ness

India Today - - MAIL - KAN­GAYAM R. NARASIMHAN,

It is ir­rel­e­vant how streets­mart Ma­mata Ban­er­jee was as West Ben­gal’s Op­po­si­tion leader, but now as Chief Min­is­ter, she ought to be more lev­el­headed to be able to de­liver on her prom­ises (“Queen of Democrazy”, April 30). While Didi shows no gift of or­a­tory in her im­pas­sioned speeches in Par­lia­ment, she is adept at the art of com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the aam aadmi on the ground. Lately, how­ever, she has been whim­si­cally ar­bi­trary on sev­eral is­sues such as ar­rest­ing a pro­fes­sor who ‘ dared’ to cir­cu­late a deroga­tory car­toon about her, ban­ning the use of English dailies from public li­braries and pro­scrib­ing lessons on Marx­ism from the school syl­labus!
