To date,Singur,Nandigram and organisational weaknesses were to be blamed for the CPMs successive political defeats in the state. But now senior CPM leader and state Left Front chairman Biman Bose has pointed out one more reason to the declining fortunes of the party. In an in-depth study about the reasons for the Left Fronts debacles,which was published in Desh Hitaishi recently,Bose blamed it on the partys failure to produce ideal Communist leaders.

Mamata Banerjee has a unique way of disseminating news,a habit that she has not forsaken from her Kalighat days. Even today as the chief minister of the state,she calls her favourite reporters to her office at Writers Buildings for what is reportedly termed as a session of adda. And it is during such addas,the breaking news surface,which her favourite reporters get to flash it on their network. Last Friday,during such an adda,the CM disclosed her plan to visit Darjeeling and Jhargram. Soon,one TV news channel began flashing the breaking news,leaving not-so-favourite reporters running from pillar to post to get it confirmed.
