WB: State of distress - Govind Bhattacharjee, Indian Express
A combination of populism used with reckless abandon and economic shortsightedness has driven the state towards bankruptcy. In 1980-81, West Bengal produced 9.8 per cent of the industrial output produced in India; in 2009-10, it was only 4.32 per cent.
