Mamata's chopper loses track, lands hour late at rally
Chopra(North Dinajpur)/Kolkata, Apr.10 (HS): In an unusual situation the pilot of the helicopter of West Bengal Chief minister Mamata Banerjee today lost track of his route under a cloudy sky and took a much longer time to reach destination, about 125 km away in North Bengal today. According to Trinamool Congress and the Police sources, the Chief minister who was to reach Chopra at around 2 p.m. from Siliguri today, to address an election rally there, could not reach there on time because of trouble in the sky before ultimately reaching the destination about an hour after schedule time. They said because the pilot of her chopper lost track of his aerial route and went very near to the international border between India and Bangladesh before realizing his mistake and returned to the spot of his landing. According to them, the 125 km long distance which could be covered by her helicopter in only about 22 minutes, instead took nearly an hour to reach causing huge concern and tension among the party supporters at Chopra, situated very close to Indo-Nepal Border on one side and Indo- Bangladesh border on the other and is known as the ''Chicken Neck of Bengal''. However, chief minister herself refused to pay any credence to her hour long delay to reach the rally ground at Chopra, and merely mentioning the Pilot''s loss of aerial track as ''quite natural in a cloudy weather'', however, the issue could have been worse, if the chopper strayed into the neighbouring country crossing the international border. Later in the rally the chief minister in her usual mood spate venom against the Prime minister and BJP and urged the people to reject the National party ''lock stock and barrel'' and elect only TMC candidates in Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Raigunj and Balurghat seats in the second phase of elections on 18 April.
