The Chief Minister of West Bengal had publicly announced after assuming office, to dig out corruption cases against the ministers of the Left Front government. It even created a special audit team for this purpose. Seven hundred and thirty days into it, the special audit team is all but defunct as sources in the government have said that this round of ‘McCarthyism’ yielded absolutely. On the other hand, Mamata government has been beset with major cases of mal-governance and other misdemeanors like Sharada chit-fund,100 crore scam in Siliguri, Trident Street Lights Project etc.
