The ban on certain newspapers is seen by many as a step towards putting in place all those who are critical of her. In today’s world of advanced technology and with the TV network reaching out into the farthest corners to collect news, it is next to impossible to keep any news under wraps.
Obviously, those involved in politics should always be wary and careful of what they speak, how they behave in public, and the message they are trying to give out. They must not be arrogant.
Apart from this ban on newspapers, another action of Banerjee has drawn flak from all quarters – that is the transfer of a lady police officer Damayanti Sen IPS who had been involved in solving the infamous Park Street rape case.
Sen had dared to cross swords with the Chief Minister and has paid the price. She has been transferred from being the Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, to Barrackpore Police Training School as DIG Training.
Banerjee has taught her a lesson – defy me and you will be punished, is what she wanted to convey to the police force.
