--Hello friend, which organisation you are talking about? Is it TMC? Wikipedia do not belong to any organisation. It is an organisation by itself. This is not TMC's homepage. So I think you should ask any questions or give feedback through TMC's website, not through Wikipedia. Borfee (talk) 14:52, 17 November 2008 (UTC)borfee


WHY did the well refereced things reverted back, on charges of vandalism. The users who commit such acts are warned to use discussion page, otherwise a comlaint shall be filed against them with wikipedia admisnistrators. DONT use this article as a means of Propaganda. I am undoing the changes.

The picture has been changed because the emblem of Trinamool Congress, which exist on the flag consists of an exclusive symbol of Jora Ghas Phul, which symbolizes down-trodden grass-root flowers. Jora Ghas Phul literally means "two flowers rising from the grass". But in the given picture Trinamool Congress Flag.svg the grass does not exist and hence it is not the correct flag of the party. The grass exists in the electoral symbol of Trinamool Congress File:Trinamool.png, which is correct. -Trinanjon Basu (talk) 15:45, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
This seems to be a fair objection. --Soman (talk) 16:01, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Yeah your right the logo is changed saw it in their official site. Thanks for correcting me.--Kkm010as© 17:16, 29 June 2010 (UTC)


User:Kkm010 reverted the removal of the position 'centre-left' from the infobox. I find the addition of left-right-axis positions on parties like Trinamool quite misleading. Most of Indian political parties (with exception of the self-identified communist left and the Hindutva right) are catch-all parties, with no or little identifiable ideological line, built up around charistmatic leadership and/or caste/regional identities. Trinamool represents the mainstream rightwing in West Bengal. On the national level it forms part of UPA, which with some imagination could be labelled as 'centrist'. But during the NDA government (which could be labelled as rightwing), it was part of NDA. In short, in order to avoid obvious ambiguity its better to remove 'position' altogether from the infobox of the party. --Soman (talk) 17:38, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

May be your are right my friend. Please take this source or this and correct its ideology and if possible what position do it hold because for me it baffling situation to figure out whats there actually ideology and position to be honest it difficult to find what ideology of these small parties in India do have.--Kkm010as© 17:52, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
One would not be able to dechiffer any ideological position from those documents, without indulging in WP:OR. The party constitution only states a general adherence to the principles of the constitution of India, which is not really indicative of anything. The problem with left-right positions is that they are contextual, whether you're left or right depends on the context in which you act. I would leave out position altogether in the case of Trinamool (and parties like TDP, BSP, NCP, RJD, etc.). --Soman (talk) 02:49, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
But Soman one imp stuff is every party wheter big or small do have some kind of ideology as far as position is concerned its better to leave it. I totally agree with u about left and right situation.--Kkm010as© 05:17, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Controversies section[edit]

From experience from other articles on Indian political parties, having a 'controversies' section is not a very good idea. As we have seen in the conflicts on the CPI(M) article, West Bengal politics is permeated with mutual accusations of violence and crime against their political opponents. My suggestion is not to build a controversies section, and not to include 'nexus' mentions until there is some sort of official court case establishing that such a link exists. --Soman (talk) 18:43, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

-May be whatever you are saying, is right. But to enlist the truth is not a bad idea, even if wikipedia permits it. The edit was done in good faith, just to increase the knowledge of the visitors by updating the facts about the TMC party. I think you have the knowledge how our judicicary works, it took years to reach a final judgement. Even so party like TMC has its influence to buy media, press, legislature and judicary, so how can we believe that this case will reach its might.
In such circumstance, with full legitamte authority provided by wikipedia, i have every right to preserve this well researched edit.
I hope you will discuss it first before reverting.
-Basuupendra (talk) 19:03, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I'm well aware of the limitations of the legal system and I personally don't believe in the innocence of Trinamool. But having controversies sections tends to invite listings of biased commentaries, which does not forward the quality of wikipedia as an encyclopedia. I think the passage on Suvendu Adhikari can stay in the Suvendu Adhikari article, but is not necessary here. --Soman (talk) 19:27, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

In need of revision to meet WP:NPOV[edit]

I removed the following from the article as it is an unacceptable POV push but I do not have time to verify claims and restructure into a more appropriate content. The community can work on it here.


AITC-MAOIST Nexus[edit]

All India Trinamul Congress has been accused many a times by opposition parties like CPIM and Left Front for giving support to maoist cadres.[1] Later on The [[Criminal Investigation Department]] of West Bengal police, has discovered that Party's MP Suvendu Adhikari has open links with local maoist leadership based in Nandigram. Maoists started there base in Nandigram in September 2007, only with the open handed support of Trinamul Congress. The arrested Maoist leader 'Madhusudan Mondal' has claimed that Suvendu Adhikari himself has supplied arms and ammunation to local maoists, in order to kill and murder the opposition CPIM leaders. About 35 Marxist cadres, and two marxist leaders were killed during during one and a half year of 'Trinamul-Maoist' nexus in west bengal(nandigram movement).[2][3]

Adhikari supplied ammunition for the CPI (Maoist) members to

fight the CPI (M) and the police in Nandigram. Meanwhile, the over ground activists of the Maoist party along with the Trinamool and others had set up the Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC) to mobilise people against land acquisition.

- If it is written on unclaime sources then only it is a POV push. But references are cited from well known dailies, so it is not a POV push. By censoring such a content which aims to expand the article, you are somehow pushing a POV.
Basuupendra (talk) 05:53, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry you cannot put like that, before adding those materials to this article please read WP:NPOV guidelines properly and secondly few newspapers claim such stuffs doesn't mean you have put it and these type baffling incidents had been happened in other articles too. Therefore, Your edits are going to reverted.--Kkm010 | Talk with me 08:52, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

- Unfortunately i didnt see anywhere such kind of claims are reverted in any of the articles but here. Secondly few "High Ranking" dailies and report of the Criminal Investigation Department is enough for the claims made in the article. By censoring it harshly, you are taking some side, which in any way far from being "Neutral".
-Basuupendra (talk) 12:53, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, YOUR edits are unacceptable. If you do again i will revert it. You so called dailies are baseless. You must read the NPOV properly.--Kkm010 | Talk with me 04:23, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

That paragraph is a catastrophe. Very very badly written, clearly non-neutral, misrepresents sources, has BLP issues. Discussion by Basuupendra to address even some of these issues instead of reverting war would be good. Christopher Connor (talk) 13:57, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

I am local people from Calcutta,India. I know very much this issue. This is clear political propaganda by CPI(M) party try to proof AITC-MAOIST link, very day I show in local news paper, they alighted that link. And AITC deny this. I think this article should written as NPOV style. Not take any undue weight in particular topic. - Jayanta Nath (Talk|Contrb) 15:01, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I would like to discuss that the article Ma Mati Manush is just reflecting the slogan of the political party, All India Trinamool Congress. Its seems to be publicizing the agenda of the party. Please do not remove the merger template (removal of the template will be based on the result of this discussion). WOWIndian Talk 12:45, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose: It was initially a political slogan, which became very much popular, and was later widely used in songs, theaters, films etc. --TitoDutta 14:54, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose and Deleting merge template The proposer WOWIndian is blocked and the reason mentioned is not much valid, per Titodutta. Jim Carter (talk) 15:10, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support and Restoring merge template Ma Mati Manush is clearly a non-NPOV article, campaign slogans should not get their own articles, note that Barack Obama doesn't get a separate page for his; Yes We Can (slogan) is a redirect to Barack Obama presidential campaign, 2008#Slogan, and gets a single paragraph, despite having been made into a song. I'm not convinced that any currently used advertising slogan of any sort can be NPOV, it's inherently pushing a viewpoint or product. XeroxKleenex (talk) 04:00, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Merge proposal:All India Trinamool Student Congress to here[edit]

Sending WP:APPNOTE to Sudipan and RichardOSmith. The student organisation doesn't appear to meet WP:ORG or WP:GNG, but would be worth a merge and redirect here. Boleyn (talk) 18:43, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
