While watching all the lies and truths being spoken in the name of election campaigning, one thought that comes up to my mind is we, the veterans know the truth, but what about those who dont know? I rarely discuss politics in my blog, but a few weeks ago I had some discussions with a fb guy, he was trying to compare the situation of west bengal under our previous government to other states of the country.
Outsiders simply dont have any inkling of the level of hell they have created in this state. The reason must be their total control of media, these days media is blabbering their heads off about rigging and atrocities but where were these people in previous regime? I hate politics, and no I dont vote for any political party, and I know that the present government certainly is not “perfect” but I wont even compare them to the previous ones.
No matter how many lies are spoken by political mouths, we, who have suffered the previous government know very well how much the very environment has changed.
One thing is for sure, I will never trust Bengali media channels. I am rather content with my Hindu (newspaper) journalism. That newspaper is actual newspaper.
But, we do sometimes like to read or hear some honest journalism from the same province.
