Elections 2019 has been marked with a couple of firsts…
The hate speech by any state chief minister
CM abusing the chair of Prime Minister
CM calling PM by numerous names
CM threatening to slap PM
PM engaging in verbal altercation Asansol Trinamool candidate said was unaware of violence as she woke up late
In what can be termed as the last straw to break the camel’s back is the Election Commission (EC) imposing Article 324 in the state. Well, no prizes for guessing, all these have taken place in Bengal.
Experts, opine that it’s for the first time in the history of elections in India such stand has been taken by the EC. In the past state like Bihar had hit the headlines over malpractices in elections but even then EC never imposed Section 324.
What is Article 324 and why Mamata Banerjee is fuming?
Imposition of Article 324 will ensure the campainging ends a day before the scheduled deadline. This would mean campaigning will end on Thursday at 10 PM in all the nine constituencies across West Bengal. The scheduled deadline was Friday 5 PM.
The Commission has cited the ongoing violence between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Trinamool behind this stringent action. According to EC this has been done to ensure security in the state.
Immediately, after the announcement, state chief minister and Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee held a press conference and fumed over the announcement. She accused the BJP President Amit Shah behind the entire development and refused to accept the mass rigging, violence that took place in all the six phases of elections in the state.

Apparently, it may appear I am a sadist but if I explain sequence wise, you all will understand. This is bang opposite #OxfordBookGallery on #ParkStreet, #Kolkata. This man was carrying the girl (pic1)as if she was no more. Like all I too felt sorry and extended help whatever limited I had. After nearly 20-mins the frame changes. The girl gets up fresh and fine and sit back to count the earning (pic 2, pic 3 and pic 4).Then again girl pretended to be dead and I left as my friend arrived for whom I was waiting…Now, I am not mocking as I know circumstances pushes a person to beg but my question is why pretending as if daughter is dead…Just keep your eyes open when you pass by that place as you too may see them…
Few words from my observation…
Those who echo #Trinamool supremo and #BengalCM #MamataBaneree that there has been an escalation in the #jobsector should either identify themselves with ground reality or just keep their mouth shut. I have been running from one office to another for job after relocating in #Kolkata but unable to get one. Having over 19-years of experience in #journalism, I am ready to take up anything non-media inspite of having so much obsession for NEWS. Unable to bag one. Not only there are no job but those in HR are confessing that the state government has ruined the job sector totally as there are no industry, offices or organisation coming to Bengal and the claims by ruling party are totally false. When I say looking for jobs I mean all ie. #media and #nonmedia. Let’s not even discuss the media sectir as entire industry has been #politically hijacked. Journalists cannot express their views as ruling party has strong aversion for anti-establishment news and in the past had banned many #newspapers, tv channels for their reportage on the situation. #Journalists confess that they are scared and feeling sufficated.
However, only one sector is flourishing, that is the fraternity of Job Consultants. (genuine and frauds. There are exceptions and try to cooperate. Some also confessed that the situation is grave in Bengal as far as job is concerned). Beggars can’t bed choosers, hence one has to meet them and they would make tall assurances. Few big consultants in the state (mostly situated in the state-of-the-art towers in Sector-V, Salt Lake) would demand an amount in the name of processing fee and assure they will find a job of preference within a few days…Another thing I feel must be mentioned is unlike other cities here you receive a call mostly from the consultancy agents rather than the HR or the recruitment desk in the respective offices…
I still love ‘Kollolini’ ‘Tillotoma’ Kolkata, she is the most beautiful places and I am simply in love with her but these #political parties and #politicians have ruined the state and are still ruining, making false promises and tall claims.
The situation is so grave that after working as an Associate News Editor and managing all news related activities, I am here looking for a job in #PublicRelations, #MediaManager, #Communications and even #FrontOffice…#VoteBankPolitics #UnemploymentBengal
