Kolkata: A day after West Bengal Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari met with Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, the ruling Trinamool Congress on Friday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on immediate removal of Mehta. The TMC fears that Adhikari's meeting with him might influence the Narada and Sarada scams.

After TMC shared the letter however, Adhikari said that he couldn't meet the Solicitor general as Mehta had refused to meet him. Notably, Suvendu Adhikari’s name has been mentioned in both the Narada bribery scam and Sarada ponzi scam.

“In Narada bribery scam Suvendu Adhikari was seen taking bribe in the sting operation and prime accused of the Sarada chit fund scam the prime accused Sudipta Sen had written several letters stating that Suvendu had taken money from him and after investigation both the ED and CBI found Suvendu guilty and his name is in the FIR. His visit to the Solicitor General at his residence might influence the cases,” read the letter.

TMC spokesperson and state general secretary Kunal Ghosh said that Suvendu should immediately get arrested as his name is there in the FIRs.

West Bengal BJP vice-president Jai Prakash Majumdar said that just to hide the failure of the TMC, they are trying to malign the saffron camp.

“Just to turn people's face away from their failures the TMC is forcibly trying to malign the Leader of Opposition,” claimed Majumdar.
