Q.

Jyoti Basu was a traitor to his country. He openly supported China during the Indo-China war in 1962. In any other country he would have been executed. However, he was the longest serving Chief Minister in India and nearly became the Prime Minister. This can happen only in a country as shameless and unpatriotic as India.
Jyoti Basu also spearheaded the industrial demise in West Bengal.
Jyoti Basu's life should be mourned and his death celebrated.

I am no supporter of Jyoti basu, but to say he supported China is too big a statement to make. Such statements have to be backed by proof. Lots of people say that he supported China, but what is the proof ?

SUpported themself's dividing...the latter- SouthAsia (HIndustan)and the former- INdia. as u can see in the wiki. So why blame Basu?

But to b fair to the man, whatever he did, he did it rite- in terms of industrial performance economically. I know and it is SKULL HELL HARD to do under party politics! I would consider this man a Hercules in that regard.

If u apply to any industry journal, specific to India, and see performance, consumer rating, DELIVERY ON TIME, u will see WB races above the rest that was Basu's policy an work in a national system unfriendly to SOcialist policy in general esp after 1961 war :( ...more
