Mamta’s grouse

May 11 2016

Self-proclaimed Robinhood editor of a news channel happened to be in Kolkata to cover the elections in West Bengal. There was supposed to be an exclusive interview with Mamta Banerjee, as well as dinner. When he arrived in Kolkata in the morning, he made directly for Aveek Sarkar’s place, the owner of Anand Bazar Patrika. That is because he has worked in The Telegraph in the past. He had lunch with Sarkar as well as tea, and both engaged in conversation and discussions for a long time. When Didi came to know about it, she was enraged. That is because Mamta and Aveek Sarkar, along with his media group, can’t stand each other. Suddenly, the journalist got a phone from Mamta, informing him that the meeting between the two has been cancelled. The journalist called Mamta right back, requesting for the interaction, saying it was only for her that he had come from Delhi. Sources say that an angry Mamta then gave the journalist a piece of her mind, and reminded him how she had supported him on his Bengali wife’s request, when he was mired in the controversy of the selling and buying of Parliamentarians. And today he was breaking bread with those opposing Didi?
