Bengal Election – Bad Day Of Democracy

What’s Democracy? Why it is not in a good position?

Bengal Election 2021, has been now going on according to democratic rules. Election Commission is the highest authority to conduct this massive ceremony of democracy. We know that India is a Democratic country and it’s one of the most popular democratic countries in the world. Our country is governed by the people, of the people and for the people. It’s the first and foremost characteristics of the democracy.

The Indian government is the largest and most developed democratic government which has acclaimed a profound reputation in all respects after getting freedom from the British.

We have achieved independence through the lot of struggle. India became a free nation on August 15, 1947 and it declared itself a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state with the adaptation of the Constitution on January 26, 1950.

It is based on the federal structure of government. Democracy is a system of government in which the citizens exercise powers directly or elect representatives from among themselves to form a governing body, such as Parliament.

It also refers to rule of the majority. Here no one can enjoy the power by virtue of inheritence. People elect their leaders. Representatives stand in an election and the citizens vote for their representative. The representative with the most number of votes gets the power.

However, in Bengal, We have lost so many lives in the freedom movement, and the partition. We have lost our neighbours. Bengal has divided into two. Now we are in West Bengal. The rest of Bengalis are now in Bangladesh, a country.

So we are one of the states or provinces of India. Though many Hindu population had to come here from East Bengal after the partition. And still, now Bengali Hindus are coming from Bangladesh.

Why the Hindus are coming from Bangladesh?

Muslims majority Bangladeshi people don’t want Hindus community as their neighbours. So some minority Hindus are still leaving their motherland, and when they feel insecure there, they left their motherland and try to settling down here in West Bengal. Now they’re solvent here.

On the contrary, the Muslim community of West Bengal are gradually expanding because of their uncontrolled birth rates. While Hindus are extremely conscious of the birth rate and don’t want to have more than one child. On the other hand, the Muslim community are uncontrolled about this issue.

They are not aware of birth control. So they are having 7/8 sons and daughters. This is a great problem of our country.

Hope it’s clear to everybody what is democracy! The election procedure is the main criteria to be handled by the election commission for making a stable government.

Everyone has the right to vote for his representative. And if it possible to conduct an election by the Commission smoothly, so there’s no problem.

But the problem is here. There was a time when the election took place very calm and disciplinary way. But after 1970, it had not been possible.

This is not the fault of the Election Commission. Political leaders and their devotee musclemen are responsible for this undemocratic situation. Mainly ruling party has always been trying to capture the booths by their muscle man.

Therefore, gentlemen abstain from voting. Sometimes, muscles men used to threaten the voters not to present in the booth. Sometimes they capture the booths by hook or by the cook.

We have seen it in the previous election. Even it’s now almost a part of the election. Manhandling, death threats, bomb – bursting, brick-throwing to opposition leaders as well as supporters are some of the causes of undemoçratic situations.

Most of the political leaders are not from literate family. Even they have no education. Mainly connected with the corruption, convicted in money -laundering case, forgery and also in criminal charges.

At present, politics mean to manipulate and to manage cores of public money. Let’s see TMC leaders. All most all the leaders are corrupted.

They have taken a lot of money from Rose Valley, Sarada and Narada. Kunal Ghosh, now TMC spokesman, Saugata Roy, Satabdi Roy, Madan Mitra, even Mamata connected with this scam.

Some players of Mamata have changed their party and joined in BJP. I am saying about Mukul Roy and Bharati Ghosh. Both are convicted. They are now under the umbrella of BJP.

Most importantly, the ruling party leaders like Abhisekh Banerjee, Samir Babu, another Minister Jyotipriya Mallick, Arup Roy and so on are tremendously connected with corruption.

This government and their leaders are not out of the question. Ration Scam, Coal scam, Cow supply scam, Sands scam, Tarpaulin –

hustle, etc so many scams are wrapped up in the deep digging . We don’t desire all these scams in democracy.


Lastly, Coal Scam is a great source of party funds. Moreover, it is in the light that in every month 30 to 35 crores Rs of coal money has gone to an account of Rujira in Bangkok Bank, who is the wife of Abhisekh Banerjee, Trinamul MP and nephew of TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee.

We have seen the photos in Quora his Shantiniketan, 5 storied gorgeous building and another beautiful multi-storied building.

We have heard from different Kolkata – based leaders that there are so many buildings and flats in Kolkata of 34 years old Abhisekh. He has also hotels in Puri and Digha. Also Delux Bus services. He has done a lot through cut money, commissions.

Even he has taken lot of bribes by giving services and job transfer etc. Is it proper in democracy?

Mamata now speaking that Central Government is selling Rail, Banks, and other government profitable institutions and they are making money. Is it possible? Or is it Rational?

Rather, she should rectify her own greater families. As a common people, we are to know about the sources of income of her party leaders, along with Abhishek’s sources of income and his properties and Bank balance.

Citizen of Bengal, as well as India and all the media can be able to understand what is going on behind this. It should be clear before the common masses.


But naturally, the ruling party is trying to get hold the power again. If they achieve it, no one can ask them about their corruption.

Common people, mostly villagers couldn’t find the fault of ruling party. They have got some political powers. So they are contented. It’s the politics of appeasement and polarisation.

Present Chief Minister is providing some 500 to 1000 to 2000 per head as different skims and temporary casual works. It’s her policy to attract people and to get a vote in favour of her party.

Educated Unemployment youths have not got any service. So Need to establish an industrial belt, which can provide them employment. Bjp has assured that if they get victory in this legislative assembly Election and form a government, they must implement it.

Need to vocational training and education, lest the youths can learn it in pen to paper and to hand, so that they can do earn something for their livelihood.

Hence, whenever not doing so, ruling party is trying to win in vote – game by muscle powers, and making nuisance, ploralisation and manhandling, Booth – capturing, threatening to common people, it is beyond democracy. It’s called”anarchism”.

Political murdered is now open secret. Opposition party members has killed near about 140 BJP supporters. It’s also against the Democratic system.

Rigging is also against democracy. In spite of that, we need to give vote for our democracy.

Today is 8.4.21. Third round of Election has already ended . The election campaigning for the fourth round today is over.

Therefore, we can hope that the people of West Bengal could have been able to cast their vote in the ballot paper in natural way . Leaders should be careful not to provoking their supporters in acting undemocratically any violence or malpractice in election process.

Casting a vote to his/ her favourite representative is like a sacrifice a flower to his or her God or Goddess in a holy democracy. So don’t pollute it. Hope next phase of election will be furnished with calm and cool. Our right is to save the holy democracy.
