Never in the history of Kolkata and Bengal, people had witnessed such “pomp and show” to celebrate Ramnavmi. There had been people celebrating the festival but not on such a big platform. Saffron brigade has been eyeing Bengal, for quite some time now, and tried every possible poll tactics to woo voters during the last Assembly polls. Trinamool Congress had given BJP a tough fight. Once again the BJP is gearing up for the forthcoming Panchayat polls slated to take place later this month. The Saffron Brigade seems to have gained extra ‘confidence’ and ‘calories’ after they won in Uttar Pradesh. The enthusiastic BJP on Wednesday today, tried to en-cash the festival of Ramnavmi. The Saffron Brigade had invited large number of Trinamool MPs and MLAs.

Trying to spread and woo masses, the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sagh (RSS) alongwith its ally BJP had taken out large processions across the state which were attended by women and children with naked swords and other weapons. On Tuesday, Bengal Pradesh BJP President Dilip Ghosh had said, its an exhibition ‘shakti’ and there is nothing wrong in exhibiting swords and weapons. Well, Saffron Brigade is mistaking Bengal with other states where they have taken help of Hindutva. Someone must tell them that Bengal is the last state to heed to ‘communal card’.

This may turn a boomerang for the Saffron Brigade which had may had some chances, if at all it had. Trinamool Congress too is not much behind, it has announced that they will offer special prayers at all the Bajrangbali Temples across the state.

Fresh molestation in Kolkata’s Park Street questions law & order in the state

kolkata_story_647_040317062833.jpg
Last week, shadows of Park Street gangrape that had brought memories of Park Street gangrape victim Suzette Jordon, back. This time a 30-year-old woman alleged that she had been molested and assaulted at a nightclub at Kolkata’s iconic Part Street. Unlike Suzette, who showed exemplary courage and guts by revealing her identity, this girl prefer to keep her identity a secret. Jordan, had said after appearing on television, that its not for her to be ashamed but the accused should be ashamed. She had become Suzette Jordon, activist and could be seen in ungenerous television debates, candle light march.
The recent victim while talking to media said a group of drunk men assaulted her in front of her husband while she was at a bar on Park street this Saturday night. She alleged that the men were so much drunk that they did not listen to her pleading for mercy. “They touched me inappropriately outraging my dignity, they also thrashed my husband who tried to protect me from their clutches”, said the victim. The lady, a young mother of a two-month-old child has alleged that a group of men had grabbed her breasts badly, “I was in immense pain as they had grabbed my breasts due to which I could not feed my baby”, added the victim.

The Police which after going through the CCTV footage, claimed to have found certain missing links and have asked for more footage.
The molestation incedent reminds the horrific gangrape incedent of Suzette Jordan a few years ago that had made headlines over chief minister Mamata Banerjee trying to shun-off the allegations by calling “sajano ghotona’ (concocted incedent) and ‘choto ghotona (small incedent), there was a lull on night crimes on Park Street in Kolkata or may be things were not reported and even if reported, the Police may have taken things casually since the transfer of then IO Damayanti Sen for proving Banerjee wrong and standing beside Jordan had been a negative impact on the force trying to bring out facts. In February 2012, she was allegedly raped in a moving car on Park Street in an upscale area of the city. 
The big question is, after February 2012 gangrape, the state government had made ‘tall’ claims of not only increasing the night patrolling across the area but also asked the police to act immediately. Why then the reputation of ‘February 2012′ gangrape took place on the same streets, Park Street that once used to be among the safest places in the city. Its high time Bengal state government should stop seeing “chokranto” (connivance) in everything that goes wrong in the state and come up with some concrete steps to protect the dignity of woman which is at stake.
