Arpita and Debesh to form a new theatre group in Malda
Malda, 16 February, 2015: Unlike CPI-M Trinamul Congress did not have its own bandwagon of intelligentsias who once formed Gana Natya Sangha. It was only after people like myself and Debesh Chatterjee came closer to Trinamul, the party has now its some theatre groups of its own, said MP and theatre personality Arpita Ghosh here today while addressing the media on the formation of her new theatre team in Malda.
“A similar group under the banner Dinajpur Theatre Company was constituted few months back and the response was encouraging. When a similar approach came from Amlan VBhaduri and Sumala Agarwalla, I immediately grasped it and thus Malda Theatre Company (MTC) is going to emerge soon,” Ms Ghosh said at district library this evening. Another famous theatre personality Debesh Chattapadhyay was also present with Ms Ghosh.
She informed that the audition for those theatre-enthusiasts who want to participate in the plays to be produced by MTC would be held on 8 March in the district. However, she refused to accept that MTC would act as an wing of the ruling party when asked whether association of Trinamul leaders like Mr Bhaduri or Miss Agarwalla would politicize the character of the newly formed theatre group.
Ms Ghosh who is still under the scanner of the enforcement directorate for her alleged proximity with ill-famed Saradha chit fund company claimed that the victory of Trinamul Congress in bi-election in Bongaon parliamentary constituency and Krishnaganj assembly constituency showed that negative propaganda by media and the opposition parties did not cast the least effect on the people.
