One may like it or not, but the fate of West Bengal is sealed. BJP supporters of the state may be jumping around with enthusiasm about the prospect of the fall of the TMC government in near future for corruption charges. But this is their daydream.
There may be a very large-scale financial corruption of different types by the ruling TMC government or breaking of law and order in the state or absence of developments in all spheres of life; – but these can’t dislodge TMC from power through electoral politics.
TMC could easily digest the largescale financial scams like “Saradha”, “Narada” and “Rose valley” earlier and could win three consecutive elections to remain in power. Since 2011 people of West Bengal have been fed with a Chief Minister who is “Satotar Pratik” (Symbol of honesty) and her “Onuprerona” (Inspiration) is the source of all activities (Khela, Mela, Utsav and Freebee schemes) in the state.
In all non-Muslim democratic secular areas of the world, Muslims always vote for their community’s interest only. West Bengal is no exception. Before 2011, Muslims of West Bengal were with Communists and from 2011, they are with TMC. On Rohinghya and CAA issues, Muslims of West Bengal have shown their bare fangs publicly with support from the TMC government.
For winning election and to remain in power, a party needs about 45 percent of vote share in West Bengal. When 30 percent of that vote comes from Muslims of West Bengal in favour of TMC and rest 15 percent from Secular-Liberal and TMC member Hindus, there is no democratic means to defeat TMC in foreseeable future.
The tone was set by the first TMC Education Minister of the state Mr Bratya Basu in 2011 when he publicly announced to the opening of 10,000 new Madrasa in West Bengal. West Bengal became a lost case that day. After that, it has been a downhill journey only.
However, TMC would not have dared to initiate Islam-based politics in West Bengal without the precedence of the previous Left Front government for 34 years in the state. Those evil Communists not only encouraged illegal Muslim infiltration from Bangladesh to West Bengal but also damaged the brain of their Hindu supporters with Islam-oriented secularism. TMC later took those initiatives to a higher level only.
West Bengal has reached the point of no return. If ED, CBI and Central BJP government try to do too much of problems for the TMC government, there will be large-scale and severe Muslim backlash against Hindus across the state. West Bengal is full of local and Bangladeshi Jihadis and they may repeat Moplah Massacre or Great Calcutta Killings type of riots on Hindus in West Bengal. In that case, TMC will pass on all the responsibility for the communal persecution of Hindus to the BJP government at the Centre for its Hindutva agenda.
The recent (second week of October 2022) anti-Hindu riot by Muslims in different parts of Kolkata is an indication of that effect. Can any Hindu Bengali of West Bengal dare to imagine, even in his wildest dream, of Hindus doing an anti-Muslim riot in Dhaka? This evil gang of Left-Secular-TMC Hindus of West Bengal has lost the state to the Islamists in the name of non-existent and wishful Hindu-Muslim unity just for the sake of vote bank politics.
