West Bengal Transport Minister Madan Mitra is known as the “showman” in Mamata Banerjee’s Cabinet. The outspoken Trinamool Congress leader often creates problems for his party, as he did with his derogatory remarks about a rape victim recently. But nothing has stopped him, since Banerjee comes to his defence on many occasions. Mitra, too, is aware of his aggressive image and seems to be carefully nurturing it. He has arranged a special car for his official use and the last digits of the registration plate of the vehicle read “007”.
