I was born under the shadow of Communist rule in Bengal and I grew up hearing horror stories about the atrocities done by communist cadres. And for a politically neutral family, Bengal remains safe. Politics isn’t strange? In Kerala, Congress is the prime opponent of the Left, whereas in Bengal they are fighting together like good comrades. “Kerala mein khusti, Bengal mein Dosti”-This isn’t acceptable in any sense. The Left has been Congress’s main foe for more than 60 years. This didn’t only apply to ideological differences. There are no words to describe the number of massacres perpetrated by Left cadres against Congress supporters during their rule, and they are now voicing their reservations about post-election brutality. To list only two of their numerous sins, a Congress supporter’s hands were cut in Kandua, and 11 minority people were murdered by cadres in Nanoor. What chance do they have of being forgiven? Even the Government; in reality, the terror reigned by their Party Cadres were supported by them. In Marchijhapi, Jyoti Basu’s government ordered open fire on refugees, and in Nandigram, government-backed cadres killed villagers.
Around 50000 people were assassinated, with the bulk of those killed being Congress supporters. But one of the most heartbreaking events for me was when two famous Burdwan Congress figures, “Sainbari,” were assassinated by Cadres and their mother was forced to eat rice laced with her dead sons’ bloodIt’s heartbreaking and paints a vivid image of the atrocities perpetrated by Cadres. In reality, the government encouraged these acts of aggression and rewarded those involved with them with high-ranking positions.The atrocity was so large that it obscured subsequent killer demonstrations. Present CPM leaders, ironically, are shouting for industrialization. However, they should consider why companies fled Bengal during their tenure. There have been several cases that employers have misbehaved with their managers.Strikes and bandhs were commonplace in those days; in reality, they were the standard. Trade unions went on strike for 150 days out of 365. They discontinued learning English in school but rather enrolled their children in English-medium schools. They sent their children to foreign nations, to be more exact.They refused to allow computers into Bengal, causing the IT industry to collapse, poisoning the healthcare system, and converting party offices into government offices and government offices into party offices. Since a Communist regime is so dangerous, it prevents dissent from flourishing. I’m hoping that there are sufficient grounds for my hatred towards communism.The Congress betrayed its philosophy in this election by allying with a long-time foe while keeping its old foe in Kerala. With their support, Congress may have attempted to revive Bengal. We’ve seen exceptions in politics, but we’re astounded by this alliance, which is a farce that attempted to deceive the public.
In Bengal, even long-time Congress members did not vote for them because they sacrificed their ideology, while in Kerala, voters saw Congress as an erratic power on the battlefield. “We will not vote for you because you have linked hands with the murderer of our children.” Congress refused to consider the feelings of people who are already haunted by their pasts. They were unable to gain the public’s confidence. Since the CPM dominated the state for 34 years but did little to improve it, and now they claim to be able to make Bengal great again. Whereas there is nothing we can expect from Congress “a 150-year-old party that joined hands with its competitor in order to resurrect”.The best way for Congress to resurrect is for them to join forces with TMC. And For CPM “To wait for their Old School to disappear and new brains to completely take over”.
