The suicide attempt by Kunal Ghosh took its toll on the job of minister for jails Hyder Aziz Safi as Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has on Friday expressed her profound dissatisfaction over the performance of the department at a review meeting of her cabinet colleagues’ performance in the state assembly.
While Safi, a former IPS officer is all likely to lose his job, two other ministers, minister for hirticulture Krishnendu Narayan Choudhury and minister without portfolio Sabitri Mitra have been warned. And while Choudhury was criticised for the performance of his department, Mitra apparently invited the wrath of the chief minister for allegedly indulging in factionalism at Malda district Trinamool Congress of which she is the president. Incidentally Choudhury is also from Malda and the two are sworn enemies of each other.
At the meeting which was attended by other senior ministers of her cabinet Mamata gave her senior colleague Subrata Mukherjee the job of monitoring the performance of other ministers.
She also asked the MLAs of her party to raise their performance level in the assembly by keeping themselves posted with latest developments in every field, and being alert all the time so that they could not be taken off guard by the opposition at any moment.
