The Bengalis who were jubilant over Pranab Mukherjee becoming the president of India must have become dejected after watching his swearing in ceremony.
Some must have even felt that Mukherjee has betrayed the Bengalis.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) then had strongly objected to Bose’s name not finding a mention in Patil’s presidential address.
It will be interesting to see if the BJP again raises the issue.
But more interesting will be the reaction of Forward Bloc, a party that was founded by Bose and now supported Mukherjee in the presidential elections.
