Slams TMC leaders for their proximity to the Saradha Group

Kolkata : The Left Front on Monday threatened to lay siege in front of Nabanna, the newly built state secretariat if Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government failed to return the money deposited by the people in Saradha Group.

The Left Front has renewed their attack against Mamata and charged the ruling party leaders for their proximity to the Saradha Group. The Left leaders demanded punishment of the Trinamool Congress leaders who were involved in the scam.

Sujan Chakraborty, another CPI(M) leader alleged that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed by the state government to probe the scam had destroyed many important documents which could help the CBI to unearth the case.

He said that while other states like Assam and Odisha were co-operating with the CBI in the probe, the West Bengal Government was opposing them. He said that the Trinamool Congress should face CBI probe instead of trying to suppress the scam.

In a bid to start a counter attack against the opposition parties for spreading canards, the Trinamool Congress has already announced that its party workers would hit the streets from September 19 to September 22 in every village, block and town in the state.

Meanwhile speaking to a news agency, Trinamool Congress General Secretary Mukul Roy said he would quit politics if the party”s link with Saradha ponzi scheme scam is proved.

“We (TMC) are neither thieves nor frauds. If our party’s involvement is proved under any circumstances, I will quit politics,” Roy told a news agency.

“Is Saradha Mamata Banerjee’s crime? No. If Mamata Banerjee had not tried to punish Sudipta Sen then would he have been arrested?” he asked. Roy alleged that since Independence, the CBI has always been used for political gains by

the Centre.
