Did you hear about Suranjit Sengupta being set up? Isn’t it surprising that the seniormost Hindu minister in the country’s history is embroiled in a corruption scandal after he spoke out about the communal incidence in Shatkhira?
Everyone is talking about Suranjit Sengupta, so I thought I’d take a moment to recall how Mr. Sengupta became a minister. He became a minister because Syed Abul Hossain, the previous Communications Minister, got engulfed in several controversies. First was his insensitive remarks after the tragic death of the filmmaker Tareq Masud. This was linked with the sad state of the country’s roads. Then came the accusation corruption over the Padma Bridge.
