Lone woman standing

Mamata Banerjee, an ex-Congressi, split from the Congress  over strategy on how to defeat the CPI-M. Friendless for sometime, without any patron or godfather, she ploughed a lonely furrow.

Till an alliance with the BJP gave her impetus – and political standing. A split with the BJP and an alliance with the Congress put the wind in her sails.

Blackbox

Her policies and programmes are a black box – and may not make a big difference. Mamta Banerjee has broken the Communist hold over West Bengal – which is an unalloyed plus for West Bengal.

Red Flag

India’s emerging oligarchs who are in control of crucial parts of the economy – and the political support they get, are possibly the biggest problem. With Amit Mitra, earlier of the FICCI (a business union for lobbying) as her ‘finance’ brains and consultant, a backdoor entry by the oligarchs is a distinct danger in Mamata’s  poribortan.
