Is it the beginning of end for Mamata, the honest revolutionist!
A shocking revelation from intelligence bureau says that Sudipto Sen, the chief of Saradha group (chit fund) allegedly paid Jamat-e-Islam, an ISI backed Bangladeshi based terrorist organization through TMC MP Ahmed Hassan Imran. The JeI was not only a banned terrorist organization in India but also conspirator to overthrow the Awami league government in Bangladesh. Earlier it was also exposed that much of the fund was stashed in Bangladesh. The deal with JeI was intended that Sudipto Sen would get a free passage via Kashmir in case he subject to arrest. Factually too Sudipto Sen was arrested in Kashmir trying to flee.

Now Saradha Chit fund is no more a corruption issue which duped 1.7 million people in Bengal apart from scores from people from Odisha and Assam. Apart from this both TMC and Mamata Banerjee is in deep trouble, in fact at the wake of complete elimination.

Despite her arrogance, Mamata always enjoyed a charismatic personality in Bengal for some years. However the national media's portrayed her, Mamata Bnerjee with her ordinary white saree and sleepers in feet showcased very honest and non-compromising leader (although arrogant).  But for last one week her image was dented quite a lot.

Everyone knew that both Kunal Ghosh and Sudito Sen were close aids of Mamata. Even after the expose of this chit fund, many were considered that Mamata wasn't aware of such fraud and became a victim of her aids conspiracy. But one after another exposes gradually watered down her image.

The TMC spokes person found very difficult to defend Mamata in front of media queries. For example, Sougat Roy in a futile effort yesterday straight away said that TMC has nothing to do with Srinjoy Bose, Ashif Khan and even Rajat Gupta; although former two are TMC Rajya Sabha MPs and later was a TMC official. Now it was also exposed that Ahmed Hassan was former SIMI founder and now exposed as having connection with Jamat ul Islami!

There were many exposes linking Mamata directly with Saradha scam, which always was referred by Mamata Banerjee as coincidence. But she had to remain silent after the Saradha group bagging contract in ICRTC when Mamata was railways minister.

It's also being told that Kunal Ghosh is readying to be approver against rest accused. Perhaps that's why Mamata after a long silent opened her mouth saying that there is a conspiracy to kill her! Will this work to save her? Many experts don't think so! I think Mamata is really in big trouble and may be this is the beginning of end of Charisma of Mamata!

I personally think Mamata might be honest herself. However her utter desperation to finish left in Bengal first and then Modi next, compelled her blind eye towards this Saradha scam. For any political party to run successfully, it requires money. For aggressive political events, it requires more money. Thus for sake of revenging politics, Mamata trapped both in corruption as well as anti-national acts. I don't think she would get any reprieve just fooling the public.

One thing she could do, she should expel all the tainted MPs and MLAs. Toke a strong stand against such scamsters even if they are from her party. While prosecuting those accused definitely some dirt would be thrown at her face. But if she remains strong and take uncompromising action against the corrupt and anti-national acts, I think she could come out from this trap winningly. A leader always gets followers. Followers never make a leader (take example of Rahul Gandhi).

Question is whether Mamata has that courage to take steps right now or she would overestimate the tolerance of Bengal people? If she depend the later, then I am afraid that this is beginning of end of Mamata Bannerjee, the honest revolutionist!
