What Made Mamta Banerjee To Distance Herself From Congress And Left On CAA-NRC Issues?

After the bill of CAA got passed in parliament on 11th December 2019, since then all the opposition parties had united and were protesting against the bill, though the bill was very clear and was successfully passed in both the houses, but, the agony remained on the several issues which the government could achieve success in it like – Article 370, Ayodhya issue, improvement in defense services, CAA, etc., this feared all the opposition parties and the cumulative effect of the opposition busted out when the CAA was passed in the parliament.


The Congress, led by its president Sonia Gandhi, on Monday (13.01.2020) held a meeting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the proposed NRC. The agenda of the meeting at the Parliament complex was meant to unite the opposition against the BJP, but it exposed the fault lines amongst the Opposition itself. The chief leaders such as Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati, Arvind Kejriwal, DMK chief MK Stalin and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee stayed away.

The problem is that the Opposition parties were together on national issues, but divided into their various states. That was the reason it became difficult to assemble all of them on a common front; they had focused their local interests first.

On this behavior, the Congress party was obviously unhappy. It accused the regional outfits of putting own interests ahead of ‘national’ interest. In return, the regional parties accused the Congress of trying to capture the movement and takeover the credit.

It is apparent that Opposition unity is troubled by the loss of mutual trust, but some motivations are deep-rooted, Like Mamata Banerjee. Read more about: Mamata Banerjee protest 


The TMC supremo’s absence was most interesting among all the absentees because her motivations are not immediately apparent. Congress is not a player of importance in West Bengal, unlike New Delhi, and hence Mamata was not driven by any pressure, that faced even Kejriwal. Since the Delhi elections are a three-way fight between the ruling AAP, BJP, and Congress, any interaction with Congress on CAA/NRC may damage Kejriwal’s chances of getting re-elected.

The Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) are distrustful of Congress for different reasons. The SP still believes that its alliance with Congress during the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections was a mistake that has caused it lasting harm. ‘Behenji’ Mayawati is still upset with Congress for trying to steal her MLAs in Rajasthan.

Inception for bad books
The Blind Assassin - Margaret Atwood,Margaret Atwood

...maybe you'll climb out of it at some point but the smart ones drive off the bridge right at the beginning.


Oh, wow. That turned out more meta than I intended.


Anyhoo. The first chapter is called The Bridge, it's only two pages long and it's the only good chapter in this book of 521 pages. There were a handful of good observations or amusing passages here or there, but nothing resembling a coherent, well written, good story. And I wasted all three weeks of my holiday reading it. So. Boring.


I have an itch to read The Handmaid's Tale at some point, so I won't say I won't be reading Atwood ever again. But it's a close thing.

Shadow of the Sun - Laura Kreitzer

A fan of Russian roulette? Craving for something more dangerous?


FEAR NOT! I have the drinking game for you!


You need to buy roughly as much alcohol as you'd normally consume in two years. Then double it and add few bottles extra. Looks better, but you should really make two more trips and you'll be set!


Pick a copy of Shadow of the Sun by Laura Kreitzer. Audiobook not necessary but Tavia Gilbert's voice will help you along in those short moments between sips.


Start drinking.


Listen to the first chapter and choose your phrases. As tempting as it might be, I suggest avoiding words "my mind" and "my brain" for your health. You don't want to pass out during chapter two, do you? Also smirking and all instances where Gabriella (B-Ella for those closest to her) is a horrible person or tells a 'cute' factoid of herself should be reserved for advanced players only.


Listen to chapter three and call for the ambulance.


Drink. Listen and drink.


Listen to chapter five and pass out.


Regain consciousness, take some hair of the dog and start counting ways this story is really nothing more than a Twilight fanfiction with Angels and worse writing.


Put Tavia Gilbert's magical voice on double speed and try to hold your fatty breakfast inside.


Keep listening. Your morning migraine will pale in comparison.


Drink some more.


I assume by this point you're somewhere around chapter ten. Stop and save yourself. I didn't and I'm telling you what comes after isn't worth your time, health or sanity.

Mmmmm chocolate.
Taken by Storm - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Depressing but good.
I really liked Chase and Bryns relationship, it was kind of ridiculous and completely insta-love but also beautiful, tender and sweet. Something I really enjoyed watching bloom.

I'm ridiculously upset Taken By Storm to date is the last book written for this series, I get why Jennifer finished here, it logically makes sense, but that's not going to stop me for demanding for more, because this series was brilliant, and I'm not finished with the characters yet.
