After BJP came in power, journalists were hoping justice for Santanu as BJP was the only party which took highest political mileage but BJP after coming in power ran in the opposite direction of journalists expectations. Even though Chief Minister Biplab Deb announced CBI investigation, but as soon as CBI booked 200 IPFT’s name August 30 and IPFT denied the news, no development has come to the case.Even though under the previous Govt journalists had shown heavy protests but now all are silent against Biplab Deb’s Govt saddening the expectation of people from so called ‘fourth pillar of democracy’.
