Didi, Didi on the wall
Trinamool Congress MLA from Singur, Rabindranath Bhattacharya, who voiced his dissent after he lost the agriculture department ministry, was one of the few ministers who did not put up a portrait of Chief Minister Minister Banerjee in his office chamber. Taking a 'lesson' from his demotion, the new ministers who had been inducted in the recent reshuffle, have placed more than one portrait of the chief minister in their chambers. For example, Minister of State for Land and Land Reforms Swapan Debnath has put up two portraits of the Chief Minister in his chamber. Even Moloy Ghatak, who replaced Bhattacharya in agriculture department, made up for his predecessor's "mistake" and has now put up two portraits of Mamata — one in the room of his secretary and the other in his chamber.
Getting the units wrong
Last week, at the seminar on infrastructure Bengal Builds, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said during 2010-2011, West Bengal lost 65 lakh mandays. And during the first year of her regime it came down to 10,000 to 15,000 days. This left people wondering how come mandays could be counted in lakhs.
