He served as Chief Minister for 23 years 4 months and 17 days from 1977 to 2000.

#JyotiBasu of @cpimspeak , the red terrorist who oversaw not less than 5 MURDERS PER DAY in his tenure.

On his birthday, let me introduce to his killings of industry & people.

Much before they
came to power in 1977, the CPI-M started experimenting with murder as a political instrument way back in 1970 when they murdered 2 important @INCIndia leaders belonging to the Sain family of Burdwan. The level of bestiality that they stooped down to was evident by the fact that
they made the mother of the two Sain brothers eat rice drenched with the blood of her dead sons. As a result the mother lost her mental balance from which she could not recover till her death a decade later.

Devoid of any high ideology and believing in the cult of violence the
Basu govt used murder as a political instrument since 1978 in an organised manner.

The Murders of 1000s of Marichjhapi Harijans (Read @deepscribble Blood Island, will make you insane), Sanyasis of Ananda Marga or Rape & Murder of @UNICEFIndia employee for investigating all had
signatures of #JyotindranathBasu, infact he told media “Such incidents do happen, don’t they?” That was the hold he maintained. Then came the incident of Suchapur murder where 11 Muslims were killed in a gruesome manner because they demanded minimum wage rates.
Basu Govt
resorted to political cleansing of territories by murder, rape, arson and loot.
In 1997, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, in a reply to an Assembly question, stated that between 1977 & 1996, 28,000 political murders were committed. It meant on an average 125.7 murders were effected in
a month. It meant that the daily rate of murder was four. That is to say that one political murder took place every six hours for the entire period of 19 years between 1977 and 1996.
Between 1977-2010, no murderer was brought to book for this dreadful figure of 55,408 murders.
Coming to industries..

Business graveyard - The industrial decline of Bengal under the stewardship of Jyoti Basu

Jyoti Basu once told an industrialist that capitalists were class enemies and he should expect no sympathy.
'Amar naam, tomar naam Vietnam'
'Amar bari, tomar bari, Naxalbari' were resonating across Bengal.

In cities and towns, businessmen were seen as class enemies and the animosity took the form of militant trade unionism. Often, businessmen were the victims.

There was a thin line
between the Naxals and the Communist Party of India-Marxists, both loved Blood. (By this time Commis were divided into Marxists & Naxals)
It was also the time when Bengal's engineering industry, which was heavily dependent on the Railways, was badly hit as orders were cut down.
This was followed by labour disputes and lock-outs in many of the companies that lasted more than a year, marking their decline.

Indira Gandhi govt took this as an opportunity for her advantage & nationalised many industries, 100s of Entrepreneurs moved out of Bengal.

With the
economic decline, the problem of unemployment only increased, which added fuel to fire.

And though the United Front government tried to control the Naxal movement, it steered clear of meddling in labour disputes, in keeping with its electoral promise.

Another promise was to
reorganise the police force so as not to interfere in 'democratic movements', another name for labour disputes.
A long list of companies, from tea major Brooke Bond India to ICI India, Shaw Wallace, Bata, Birla's and electronics giant Philips India, which incidentally born
in Kolkata, had left for greener pastures.

The Communists had infested the thought process of Middle Class Bengalis, I find no difference between Brainwashed terrorists & these Bhadralok species.

Luther, the chairman of Damodar River Valley Corporation was attacked brutally
and that was the 1st time a high official of a major industry was assaulted, it was in 1980s..
Chief minister Jyoti Basu clucked his tongue over these incidents but did little to restrain the marauding mobs. With their top managers beaten, intimidated and humiliated, companies
that had established their headquarters in Bengal would have no choice but to scurry out of the state.

This is the most enduring bit of Basu’s chequered legacy: by failing to rein in the belligerent trade union leaders early in his reign, he found that he couldn’t exercise
control over the anarchy that inevitably followed.
Infact till 1960s, Bengal was the 2nd most industrialised state & had surpassed Bombay-Gujarat in number of industries & employment.…
"The Left has played a major role in destroying industrialisation in Bengal. We must accept that. Only when they decided that policies must be changed, the people decided to change the government instead. I think there is some problem in the way with which the Left party thinks
over an issue," Sen said.

Sen also said that it was during the Left regime that investments abandoned the state, agricultural development declined and Bengal got ruined.
