Questions are increasingly being raised about the political intelligence and wisdom of Biman Basu compared to Anil Biswas , the person who he succeeded .
Mr Biswas on a number of occassions have helped in keeping the communist party united both in the Indian states of Kerala and West Bengal. There has always been a tussle between the administration and the political leaders. While the top leaders want the administration to follow them, the administration wants the leaders to be behind the leaders.
Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharya in a speech during Anil Biswas’s memorial service said that the party would run through a consensus of opinion indicating therefore that the Biman Bose would not impose the ideas of the extremists on the government.
