Has Mamata Didi gone berserk?
Few days back when the doctors' dharna ?cum-strike started in Kolkata, a post on a social site caught attention that read: Please Doctors, stop your strike, rather come together and do a surgery on a Lady's brain: Everything will be alright!

And I read the comments - everyone agreed to this...common people of West Bengal are already irritated and do not want more friction, rather peace and good work and development of the state. The state has seen much violence, blood and poverty during last 30-40 years; having lost art and culture along with traditional values.

Mamata is displaying her political bias. Although she had told she accepts the verdict of the people, instead of playing cool like a CM (for example Odisha CM Naveen Patanaik) with confidence and responsibility, she did not participate in the NITI Aayog meeting called by the PM. This was a crucial meeting but Didi said a straight "No" to it.

She tried to show that the doctors' strike was a "conspiracy by the BJP and the CPM", but the strike went nationwide in solidarity of all the doctors. Even Mamata Didi's own nephew, a doctor, participated in the protest march.

West Bengal was in confusion and in between tension and violence between the TMC and the BJP carried on.

Mamata reacted with grumpy anger as some people said "Jai Shri Ram" before her. She planned a post card campaign to the PM, without understanding the lightness of the game! Taking God's name is not punishable, neither irritable for anyone, she could have kept silent, but she reacted angrily!

Now she says, "Speak Bengali if you are in Bengal." This began another row.

Mamata is growing old and behaving like a common old woman; not a responsible lady who is in an honorable position of CM of a state. She also does not understand that her statements may draw anger of other states on Begalis living outside West Bengal.

And Didi may be stamped as "separatist", trying to cut Bengal from the whole country! She may be seen as anti-national also.

Mamata has a political rivalry with the BJP that is OK and understandable, she may not like the PM also, alright, but how can she behave with so much bitterness, and spread hatred to other parts of India, and also to the elected PM of the country?

Mamata has no other way but to say "sorry" to the doctors and to the country. She is seeing a shadow of politics in everything, but as a leader she must know that the country comes first- People come first, then her party and she. Just keep in mind the well-known quote: i.e. "Public hai, sab kiuchh janti hai".
