I heard that the next time I go to Calcutta, our plane will land at Heathrow instead of Netaji Subhash Airport. Calcutta, after all, is about to metamorphose into London. Or, so Trinamool said. Mamata Banerjee said "LawnDon".
Noble intentions! So, do I see the Trinamool Mayor working on any plan of making good of the promises? Like making the strand anything like what we have with Thames? Or, perhaps, formalizing a plan of restricting cars in the central business districts? Or, using some innovative tax schemes to raise more money? Or, anything?
Of course, I don't know the answer. But will he? Is there any honest intention to make the election promise worthwhile? Doesn't seem so, especially when the great and busy Mayor doesn't have time to attent honest initiatives for the city's development. Perhaps, he is waiting for Mamata to be the CM. After that, the British suggestions and sponsorships will suddenly start making sense.
I believe Trinamool when they say they are anti-Left. Sadly, they do not invoke a shadow of a speck of a drop of a pinch of an iota of trust when they spell out their development plans. Sorry sister, I can't call you a liar, 'cause that would be unparliamentary. However, you and your party make absurd electoral promises that remain untrue till date, unless you get a special freight corridor to transplant Whitehall and the entire Piccadily to Kalighat next week. I am bheri shawry to say that you need to peddle stronger dopes to sustain the London dreams (hallucinations) you sold.
