Dear Friends,


Subject: This Also Happens, Has Happened—In The State Of West Bengal


When in our recent mail on West Bengal, we had said that the recently-held Kolkata Municipal Election was a farce, “prahasan” in Sanskrit and Bengali, some section may have felt we were unduly biased against the Mamata government.

Friends, now it has come as the front page No.1 news in the Bengali daily “Dainik Statesman” that “there had been 105 per cent polling in booth No.32.” Some other booths had been close seconds.

Do we need to say any thing more? Should not the entire poll be countermanded? Or, do we remain content with re-polling in some of these booths only? The irony of the matter is: this shame has not, perhaps because of the context of West Bengal, attracted any attention in Delhi or in the “famed” electronic medium.

Is not therefore, a need to save West Bengal before this contagion spreads? Or, God Save The Country!



Your sevak,

D.C. Nath

(Former Spl. Director, IB)

(President, Patriots’ Forum)
