Vo­lu­mi­nous talks

The Free Press Journal - - EDIT -

The de­ci­sion taken by the WB CM to be­stow her po­lice of­fi­cers, who were with her dur­ing her sit-in demon­stra­tion re­cently, with state awards if they were stripped of their medals by the cen­tre is re­ally amaz­ing! This is akin to the ruler of a fief­dom con­fer­ring medals on gal­lant sol­diers who had taken part in a deadly battle against an en­emy coun­try! The ac­tion and words of the CM don't match that of a leader who is the front run­ner in the list of PM can­di­dates of the Mahagathbandhan. It's sur­pris­ing lead­ers like her who talk vol­umes about fed­er­al­ism go­ing against fed­eral ethics and faith. It is also pa­thetic to see high of­fi­cers be­ing used as mere pawns in the game of power pol­i­tics.
