It is not a happy feeling to speak against the Prime Minister but PM Modi's conduct of his high office is deplorable. What prevents him from taking action in Narada sting? Why his government is not sending the sting video to be tested by Central Forensic laboratory? Why ?

Massive joint rally at Canning. Congress' strength was joined equally by huge numbers from the Left. Reporters told me Canning never saw this big a rally. Arnab Ray, the DCC President is the Congress candidate. Earlier, joined Dr Suryakant Misra in the rally to support Dr Ambikesh Mohapatra in Behala East and Mr. Sardar of CPIM in Bishnupur East

TMC stands totally exposed, completely isolated. Its entire top leadership caught on camera accepting bribe. Never ever such an ignominy has happened in Bengal. I held a press conference, represented to the Full Bench of Election Commission, spoke on the TV but at the end of the day- I am very sad-- Saugata Ray! Subratada! Kolkata's Mayor!

Start of the 5 day Padayatra covering 140 kilometre of Hassan assembly constituency, Birbhum district. I waked for first of the 4 kilometres. The Padayatra is meant to educate the people on the historic Food Security Act passed by the UPA government and how TMC government delayed its implementation by three years. Good initiative by Milton Rashid and his colleagues.

It is difficult to think of a rail budget as inspiring but at the very least the budget needs to be credible. Unfortunately, Suresh Prabhu failed and failed badly.

BJP and RSS is trying to put up a fight but they are finding the opponents too strong. The opponents are supporters of Constitutional democracy and stand for a liberal, secular and inclusive India.

Glad to be part of the launch of Tillotama Pal's collection of poems " Temple of Illusion". Tillotama is a favourite person of mine. She is an alumni of Department of International Relations at Jadavpur University and now a much busy executive who has time to write fine line, rhythm and thought to explore the theme of love.

Mamata Banerjee government did not implement Food Security Act legislated by UPA government for more than two years. Millions of people were deprived of the benefit of the revolutionary Act. Now the government has woken up to the " vote potential" of the Act and seeks to claim credit for providing food grains at Rs 2 per kilo. This is a central government programme which was not implemented in the state. TMC government must answer the delay and the resultant deprivation.

Law and order machinery in the state has broken down. Constitutional order is under constant threat, in Nanur and other parts of Birbhum. TMC factional fight being conducted in mafia style, villagers fleeing and police and administration surrendering to the strongmen of TMC. End of the road .. Soon.. For the TMC.

‪‪‪‪#‎ShameInChattisgarh‬ Top BJP leadership in Chattisgarh conspired with Congress leaders and Congress candidate withdrew his nomination in the bye election in September 2014, paving the way for a BJP victory. He later joined BJP! Now the conspirator Congress MLA Amit Jogi has been expelled for 6 years. His father, former CM, Ajit Jogi would also face disciplinary action. But BJP would not take any action against its leader including CM Raman Singh who were part of the conspiracy. After all BJP is a party with difference!

‪‪‪#‎PathankotQuestions‬ Yesterday I raised 4 questions in the media on the issue of Pathankot;1. Why Arun Jaitley is fielded to brief media instead of Home, Defence or External Affairs Minister? 2. Why Rajnath Singh and PM Modi said 'operation successful" even while the terrorists were inside airbase.3. Why NSG commando Lt. Col. Niranjan Kumar was martyred? How come Army was not not given charge? turf battle-- as NSG under Home Ministry? 4. Why Pakistan is not being named and foreign secretary level talk not yet postponed? Today discussion@ABP Ananda at 8.30 PM.
