sinha-jait-2KOLKATA : As today ends the four-day long Puja holiday for print media. News reports are expected to hold sway again on issues may not be very comfortable for BJP and state unit.And dailies which couldn’t touch veteran BJP leader and former union finance minister Yashwant Sinha’s critising Modi economics, set to add spice to Bengal politics, speculate political elite.

Of course, speculation is more on TMC leader and State Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee picking it up and rolling out the censure on Modi economics and his Bengal party friend !  State BJP leaders want to give Mukul Roy controversy a long rope, “Banerjee is watching silently, but no more now,’’ says an old TMC leader.
It’s Mamata Banerjee who criticized, though not very consistently demonetization and GST, as she lacked a technically correct analysis of their fallout, now embarrassed she is expected to pick up now from where she left, feel intellectuals, who have already began reading between the lines.There’s nothing wrong with Sinha? Even a few weeks back all dailies displayed how growth, GDP suffered a setback as a spinoff of demonetization and GST,’’ says a Calcutta University professor of economics.

Even jobs both in organized and unorganized sectors have slowed down, all immediately after both Narendra Modi and Arun Jaitley economics got things through,’’ he added. Bengal already suffered economically and brilliant students going out of the state to get jobs, Sinha’s economic analysis hands over an immediate crisis situation minimiser if not a liquidator for TMC.

More embarrassed politically, an aggressive Banerjee is expected to roll out attacks on Modi-Jaitely economics, not to leave behind the Left might just join in to deepen it for BJP,’’ a political commentator felt. And it may not very effectively reach New Delhi, but BJP’s target Bengal will be hit, in case  Banerjee picks it up,’’ he said, adding, “Modi-Jaitley’s promise of economic growth prescription may be a repeat or modified version of Congress-led UPA’s rehabilitation package for industry but will not prevent attacks.’’
