The latest heinous inclusion of power politics in W.B. is to exhibit ‘DEAD BODIES’ on the streets of Kolkata to gain political mileage.  The party which is organising such rally claims to be come in power within a very short time to rule W.B.
So far we were accustomed to see rather participate the last journey of the political leaders and icons of the society and pay respect to the departed soul.    
Recent past there was a rally by the student organisation of the ruling party with the dead body of a member, brutally murdered by some antisocials of the opposition, as claimed. The death of that student and fatal injury of eye of another student in connection with college election was condemned by cross section of people and media. Even the Governor of W.B. expressed his concern over the incident. But it is controversial whether it was necessary to organise such a rally.    
The think tank of the main opposition party took this opportunity for increasing their vote bank as their belief.  Now-a-days ‘dead body’ is too cheap in W.B. If the renowned economists could calculate the cost of a ‘dead body’ and recommend for inclusion in the price index, the inflation may be checked.  So, with the helm of a Central Minister easily a ‘dead body’ was captured from Purulia Dist. and displayed on the streets of Kolkata just after the first rally. The ‘CALCATIANS’ saw the dead-body of a poor ‘adivasi’ , the picture of those they viewed in the news papers and T.V. The satisfied moderators of the rally must have counted the number of votes increased from the rally and went to their business.  The body of the poor fellow left behind half a way to his village for decomposition as that was not worth full for any gain. Ironically last of all we came to know that the poor fellow was not even any connection with the party who covered his faces rather identity with their party flag.  Luck of the second ‘dead-body’ was better than the first as he could not be captured by that party as strongly resisted by his family members and villagers. But in the third attempt they could manage three dead-bodies at a time claimed to be their party men.  After the successful rally they will be happy as the number of votes will be thrice than the first.  But alas, this time also, their small ally in W.B. and big brother in the Central claims for two bodies of their own. Incidentally, the fact of those ‘dead-bodies’ will be same as the first one. However, after all, the ‘CALCATIANS’ will be grateful to them for the great show of cruelty, utilising a ‘dead-man’ for political gain. 
The intellects behind the political ideology of the main opposition party should know that this is not the way to influence the people of Bengal.  Where is their political agenda to fight against price hike and colossal theft of public money by some of their colleges in power?   The dearth of political ideology comes into light when they organise proto type programme of the ruling party and even by chasing the venue.  Their every day activity is taking into account. Apart from their followers, intellectuals, media persons and foreign emissaries, there are a decisive number of voters who are not ally of the ruling party and helped them to gain in the last elections.  They wanted to give a lesion to the ruling party by defeating them.  This time they may be cautious before casting their vote.

We think ourselves one step ahead of others (States)in the Country. Then why this Polarisation? It is only because we are opportunist,self centered and Jealous.Let us build character and time is short
