Odiha News: TMC Supremo, Didi, or Mamata Banerjee, all of the names belong to Mamata. Mamata Banerjee, who was born in 1955, on January 5 and according to 2021, is now 66 years old. She was born to Promileswar Banerjee and Gayetri Devi, Hindu Brahmin parents. She belongs to Shandilya gotra (Shandilya Gotra is one of the most prominent gotras from Brmhins, which was named after Rishi Shandilya).
The political story of Mamata Banerjee reaching from Delhi to Delhi is spread from Bengal to Delhi. In the last four decades, the country’s politics have changed very fast. The political stream on Bengal’s land flowed very rapidly, and parallel to this, the political style of Mamata Banerjee also changed. Mamata Didi’s political beginnings, which overthrew the Left in Bengal’s power, were right during school. From the very beginning, her fortune laid down such a land of struggle under her feet that she had to sell milk to run her life. At a young age, her father passed away, then Mamata had the only way to help the mother. This struggle greatly strengthened Mamata. The road to alternative politics was waiting for Mamata’s footsteps.
Mamata Banerjee’s Political Journey
Mamata took an Honors degree in History from Jogmaya Devi College in South Kolkata, then an Islamic History degree, then a B.Ed. And then a law degree. Mamata Banerjee’s political journey began during college days, and the year was 1970. Mamata was first a Congress party worker and then was general secretary of Mahila Congress from 1976 to 1980. That was the time when Mamata was trying to strengthen her political ground. By the 1980s, Mamata became so politically strong that she defeated senior CPM leader Somnath Chatterjee from the Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat.
It was not just a win for Mamta, and it was a call of the future. Didi was crowned as the youngest MP in the country. Mamata Banerjee’s stature was growing very fast. The party made Didi the general secretary of the All India Youth Congress. But in the last year of the 80s, Mamata lost her share of the Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat. Still, Mamata Banerjee, an expert in politics above defeat and victory, won the election in 1991 and reached Parliament House again. The process that followed this victory did not stop until several Lok Sabha elections. To beat Mamta Banerjee was no longer easy.
In the early 90s political sarcasm was being woven inside the country in a new way. In Narasimha Rao’s government, Mamata was given the responsibility of many departments. While in the sports department, Mamata put the development plan in front of the government, but the government refused to reinstate it. The protest grew so much that Mamata Banerjee resigned. From here, the politics of Mamata’s rebellion and the Congress Party became face-to-face.
In 1996, Mamata had a good hold in the central government, but Mamata started protesting against her own party when the petrol price was increased.
The situation just got so bad that Congress had to renounce Mamata’s attachment. The fort of differences had become very big. Mamata’s allegation to the Congress party was that the party had become a puppet of the Left parties in Bengal. By now, Mamata’s mind had moved very far to form a new party.
Mamta became the president of the party, a new party Trinamool Congress was established in the country. In a short time, Mamta Banerjee became the name of the challenge for the communist government of Bengal. As time progressed, in the 1998 Lok Sabha elections, Mamata’s party won 8 seats. In the last year of the 90s, Mamata Banerjee’s party joined the National Democratic Alliance or NDA government formed under the leadership of BJP. Mamata got the post of Railway Minister, and Bengal was given more facilities when the Railway Budget was presented. The controversy started with Mamata’s decision, and this last bond did not last long. In 2001, Mamata Banerjee’s party split from the NDA alliance.
In 2003 Mamta Banerjee again joined the NDA alliance and again became a minister at the Center. This time coal and mines minister.
The year 2005 proved to be the most dangerous year for Mamata. Her party has lost control over Kolkata Municipal Corporation.
Mamata becoming CM for the First time
When the assembly elections were held in 2011, the Trinamool Congress, with the slogan of “Maa Mati Manush,” waved the victory flags with an overwhelming majority in the assembly elections with 184 seats. With this, the Left Front, which had been in power for 34 years, was wiped out. The last CM for CPM was Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, who succeeded the longest-serving CM of West Bengal, Jyoti Basu.
Though Mamata Banerjee did not contest the election but after her party won a majority, she contested by-poll in November 2011 from Bhabanipur and won, defeating the CPIM candidate. Subrata Bakshi vacated the Bhabanipur seat for Mamata Banerjee. she took charge of CM’s office in May 2011.
In 2016 TMC won 211 seats in the West Bengal election, Mamata Banerjee won from Bhabanipur with a 25301 margin defeating Deepa Dasmunshi of INC. She became the Chief Minister of West Bengal for the second time in 2016.
Mamata Banerjee, who has been a railway minister at the center twice, loves painting. This painting became a problem for her as well. Sharada Group bought her painting for crores. This controversy also stained Mamata. Many things have made Mamata Banerjee an image of a politician who is immersed in self-praise in the people’s eyes. For now, his attitude and methods are political weapons for Mamata.
Mamata Banerjee’s personal life
Mamata had become so involved in politics since college days that there was never any interest in getting married. Mamata is always seen in a simple sari and in a sleeper. It is said that Mamata had seen a lot of poverty in her childhood after her father passed away, and due to this poverty she could not afford expensive clothes. Just because of this, she continued the same things later and even today, she keeps her dress very simple. People even say that if someone goes to Mamta’s house today, she only offers puffed rice and water to them.
