Mamata Banerjee Government in its yet another plan to remove the red of communism from West Bengal has proposed a significant amendment in history syllabus of the state board.

Well, didi(Mamata Banerjee) has been making constant efforts to eradicate the remains of the ‘Red-Ghost’- CPM and in the process she is not only adding on to her lists of criticisms but also reminding Bengal of ‘Porivorton’ (Change), which people wanted but may not have thought what it actually would turn out to be! Point is ,what good, banning newspapers,transferring IPS officers and changing history book syllabus,would do ? Should not the TMC government be busy doing things they promised about development rather than attacking, self-made ‘Red-Ghost’ out of CPM, which itself is in no shape to revive,unless the TMC government repeatedly gives it ‘food of controversies’ to capitalize and regain its support ?

The hospital had a medical superintendent, 22 pharmacists, a dozen nurses, 4 hi-tech ambulances and specialist doctors on 24×7 dutyoperating in official residence of CM.
Akhilesh has ordered the doctors and nurses to be sent to hospitals where they are needed more. Akhilesh has done away with many security measures taken by former CM Maywati.
Akhilesh’s move so far worth applauding but this is just the beginning and only the passing by time would let us know if all these efforts from youngest CM of Uttar Pradesh are really worth praising.
