Mamata Banerjee’s Facebook post erupts with people questioning her on the Panchayat poll violence

In a Facebook post published by the official page of TMC supremo, Mamata Banerjee praised the people of Bengal for voting for TMC in the recently concluded panchayat elections. The panchayat elections saw rampant violence and vote loot which one does not expect to be reflected in the comment sections but it seems people have started to speak up.

One comment was telling of the loss of faith. It was made by a woman and she commented about how TMC is slowly but surely turning into a party that Mamata came to power campaigning against. She referred to communist regimes atrocious election management modus operandi comprising of violence and intimidation and how TMC is following the same. She also warned if such tendencies are not countered by them, the People of Bengal will do away with TMC as they did with the communist regime.

Her comment comes after rampant violence during the panchayat elections. The election saw a total loss of twenty lives, ballot boxes being stolen, poll officials threatened and people being intimidated.

People were seen speaking against the apparent casualness from the ruling party about the rampant violence and ballot loot in the panchayat elections.

These comments slam the TMC government’s usage of brute force and violence in Panchayat elections and labelled them as a party of political goons and thieves, who stole the panchayat election mandate from the people by the means of intimidation.

It does not stop there, the people continued to vent their anger in the comments section. One of them commented on the proposed idea of a federal front and Banerjee leading it and questioned will she resort to the same policies of booth capturing and counterfeiting votes to win.

People also resort to sarcasm while commenting on the state of law and order situation on the polling day in West Bengal. They also hit out at various government schemes of the TMC government. And this particular comment was made by a supporter who ended the comment with “Didi Jindabad”. He was concerned about party men ruining the image of TMC and Mamata Banerjee herself.

People also spoke about the alleged involvement of leaders from TMC in various scams like Narada and Sarada while maintaining that the chief minister is the only one honest in the entire party. This exposes the rampant corruption in TMC under Banerjee.

Perhaps it is time for Mamata Banerjee to realise that her plank of ‘maa maati manush’ is becoming shaky and she needs to take the people’s concerns seriously.
