West Bengal is considered as one of the richest states when one talks about Indian culture. No doubt, this is the home land of Guru Rabindra Nath Tagore, not just the nation but the whole world has a high regard for whom. This land produced so many educationalists, researchers and several folks who made our country feel proud before the entire world.
What an irony, the person who has the responsibility to run the state and present it, not just before our own people but also the world outside makes a mockery of it. Yes, we are talking about the present chief minister of Bengal Mamata Banerjee popularly known as “Didi”.
Mamata Banerjee has recently made an announcement that the government would not claim property tax in Kolkata, completely from those who paint their houses blue and white, which is, the theme colors of the Trin Mool Congress. However, machination truth-seekers have been speaking softly not the same “actual whys and wherefores” behind this declaration.
Property possessors in Kolkata certainly have a big reason to be in good spirits. They would not need to pay the property tax to Kolkata Municipal Corporation for the year 2014-15. All they need to get this benefit is to get their constructions painted in blue and white colors, which are West Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s favorite colors. The offer is also meant to take away any symbol of the Left Front’s 30 years of rule in West Bengal.
There are jokes in the market that will West Bengal’s public get whole property tax relinquishment if they place Mamata Banerjee’s photographs on their doors?
Another sarcasm related to this announcement wandering around is that Mamata Banerjee will also excuse taxes to the Argentina football players if they play in West Bengal. And the reason being, “their blue and white strips”.
Hope the government doesn’t ask Kolkata Night Riders to paint themselves in White and Blue.
