Pori­bor­ton can Wait in Ben­gal

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

This refers to ‘Pori­bor­ton in Ben­gal’ (Apr 25). Yes, West Ben­gal CM Ma­mata Ban­er­jee knows po­lit­i­cal arith­metic too well. Mus­lims, who were once staunch Congress sup­port­ers, have moved to her en masse. Deepa Das­munsi and Roopa Gan­guly might be star cam­paign­ers for their re­spec­tive par­ties, but in terms of charisma and stature, they are no match for Didi. It’s go­ing to be per­son­al­ity-based poll like the May 2014 gen­eral elec­tions, and since she will win, there will not be any pori­bor­ton in the state.
