    Mamata expressed full sympathy with the victim at every stage and acted there on. Hope, the verdict will prove that. Some persons, the so-called elite can not accept the pro-poor role of Mamata and out to spread lies and create troubles. They will not be successful. The 2016 Electin will prove that.

      "Secular" i Momoto had called this girl a "prosute", but naturally no "secular" any problem with that at all. This i is their best hope of defeating BJP in Bengal, so they will happily cheer her.
