Decisive victory of Mamata

An opportunity to strengthen ties

Mamata Banerjee has proven how a committed leader can sweep the polls againstveteran rival, the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) that had ruled the State for decades. We note how effectively she has countered communal forces in West Bengal. The relationship between Bangladesh and West Bengal is very special and Ms. Banarjee has shown her political acumen by wasting no time in inviting our prime minister to pay a visit to Kolkata upon her re-election for a second term to public office. Trinamool Congress’s latest win puts the party squarely at the helm of affairs and has changed the political landscape of India which was evident by the presence of so many important leaders from the centre at the swearing in ceremony.


With this victory, we must assert the need for vital cooperation on issues that are crucial for Bangladesh such as the Teesta river water sharing agreement and concerns that linger over the Tipaimukh dam. It should be noted that Mamata’s opposition to water sharing of Teesta led to a rather public spat between the two neighbouring countries and soured our relations with Delhi. Being a lower riverine country, Bangladesh must have its due share of water, and we can only hope that with the acceptance of Mamata’s invitation to our Prime Minister to visit West Bengal, these sticky issues will be resolved expeditiously. It is our sincerest hope that Ms. Banerjee will move away from her earlier stance and take a more pragmatic one on these issues and others which will lead to a strengthening of the relations between Bangladesh and West Bengal.
