By the end of this week, a marginal farmer in the neglected region of Jangalmahal in West Bengal would have spent 15 days in jail. His crime? He disrupted a public meeting held by Mamata Banerjee, which made him in her eyes, a Maoist. Truth vs Hype travels to a state that elected a leader with the mandate of change, but is grappling with the politics of intolerance. What has led Mamata Banerjee, the one-time political rebel, to become so averse to dissent? Or is this, as her supporters insist, a selective focus on a few incidents, which ignore her attempts to transform West Bengal?
