Making a ‘celebration’ of poverty used to a communists legacy, say a section of citizenry even as they lament that trying to copy this cult of politics will not serve long term and lasting interest for the Congress.
Dulal Maity, a Bengali resident in Jabalpur, describes himself as a ‘boy’ from erstwhile Marxists’ family in Chandannagar in West Bengal. The 45-year-old entrepreneur says he was sent out from Kolkata on a ‘punishment’ posting seven years back, but now he is settled in Jabalpur and is happy about it.
“Dukhho Vilashita (Celebrating poverty and tough life)’ used to be a phenomenon in West Bengal during long communists’ rule.
Apparently, the Congress has copied that feature of anti-establishment politics and this is just meaningless,” he says.
