Himachal Also Records A Spurt In Count
Amit Bhattacharya

At least three states inthe country, led by Ben-gal, have started showing signs of a spike in Covid-19 infections after Dur ga Puja/Dussehra celebrations last week, although in absolute terms the numbers are not big so far.

Bengal reported 974 fresh cases of the virus on Saturday, the highest single-day count in the state in over three months since July 10 this year. The daily case count in Bengal has been over 800 in the past four days. The other two states witnessing a rise in cases this week are Assam and Himachal Pradesh.

G-Men return to The Queen City

Joe Judge’s team will be faced with a difficult test when they travel to Cincinnati to take on 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the Bengals. After finishing with the league’s worst record in his first season as a head coach, Zac Taylor now appears to have his team heading in the right direction. The Giants must put a lot of pressure on Burrow and keep him in the pocket in this matchup. The first overall pick in this year’s draft is having an impressive rookie season and has already torched plenty of defenses so far in 2020. Offensively, Daniel Jones needs to take advantage of the vulnerabilities in the Bengals’ secondary. This area of their defense is not exactly their strongest, so Jones should take some deep shots with Darius Slayton and Golden Tate. With Cincinnati drafting Burrow, it appeared as though veteran A.J. Green could be in position for a huge bounce-back season. However, Tyler Boyd has really emerged as the top receiving option in the Bengals’ offense. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham must have a good game plan for taking Boyd away. Here are TGI’s keys to victory against Cincinnati:

ममता की ममता के सहारे विपक्ष

टीएमसी को पश्चिम बंगाल में जीत दिलाने में कामयाब रहीं ममता बनर्जी भले ही खुद अपना चुनाव नंदीग्राम से हार गई हैं, लेकिन विपक्ष अब उन्हीं में अपना सहारा ढूंढ रहा है। कांग्रेस धीरे-धीरे खात्मे की ओर है, ऐसे में भला विपक्ष ममता के अलावा आस भी किससे लगाए। मिशन 2024 के तहत प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी और भाजपा के खिलाफ साझा विपक्ष के नेतृत्व को लेकर घमासान की स्थिति बनने लगी है। ममता बनर्जी ने अब खुले तौर पर घोषणा कर दी है कि साझा विपक्ष का नेतृत्व अब वो ही करेंगी। तृणमूल कांग्रेस ने बता दिया है कि कांग्रेस के पूर्व अध्यक्ष राहुल गांधी पीएम नरेंद्र मोदी के खिलाफ विकल्प के रूप में उभरने में नाकाम रहे हैं। कांग्रेस की अंतरिम अध्यक्ष सोनिया गांधी के साझा विपक्ष की तैयारियों में जुटी तृणमूल कांग्रेस ने अपने बंगाली मुखपत्र 'जागो बांग्ला' में 'राहुल गांधी विफल, ममता हैं विकल्प' के हेडिंग से एक लेख के सहारे कांग्रेस सांसद की उन सभी कोशिशों को कमतर बताया, जो वह भाजपा के खिलाफ नेतृत्व की कमान पाने के लिए कर रहे हैं। वैसे, टाइम मैग्जीन की साल 2021 के 100 प्रभावशाली लोगों की लिस्ट में प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के साथ ममता बनर्जी का नाम शामिल होने के बाद तृणमूल कांग्रेस का उत्साहित होना सही है। लेकिन, इस स्थिति में सवाल उठना लाजिमी है कि साझा विपक्ष के नेतृत्व पर ममता ने दावा तो ठोंक दिया, लेकिन क्या ऐसा हो पायेगा?
