Kolkata: The Partha Chatterjee saga has brought about a sensation in Bengal’s energy corridors with stacks of money discovered at Arpita Mukherjee’s flat. Arpita is reportedly a detailed aide of the previous Bengal schooling minister. Whereas BJP has been attacking TMC following the arrest of Arpita and Partha by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Trinamool Congress’ Nationwide Normal Secretary Abhishek Banerjee has hit again at BJP and accused the celebration and PM Narendra Modi for the continual existence of “black cash” in India.
At a gathering, Abhishek mentioned that on November 8, 2016, PM Modi had requested for 50 days and mentioned that if after that, black cash is discovered within the nation, he could be able to face the music. “How did a lot black cash come regardless of demonetisation?” requested Abhishek, including that PM Modi can be to be blamed for the large amount of money present in Arpita’s flats.
Now BJP MP from Bengal, Dilip Ghosh, has slammed Abhishek for his feedback and mentioned as an alternative of rectifying their very own errors, TMC is hell-bent on blaming BJP. “That is the basic case of ‘ulta chor kotwal ko dante’. If the TMC had the intent, they may have recovered the black cash from Partha Chatterjee’s aide’s residence. However that did not occur, regardless of them being in energy within the state. It was PM Modi who has proven how the evil of black cash might be eradicated from India,” mentioned the MP, including, “They (TMC) are so thick-skinned that they cannot study from their errors.”
The TMC, which had been distancing itself from its arrested chief Partha Chatterjee, axed him as a minister on Thursday and suspended him from the celebration leaving it to him to defend himself within the Enforcement Directorate probe into the trainer recruitment rip-off wherein crores of rupees have been seized from residences linked to his aide Arpita Mukherjee. Trinamool Congress’ choice to half methods with one in every of its most senior leaders was introduced by celebration chief Abhishek Banerjee at a press convention wherein he mentioned “if anybody commits one thing fallacious then Trinamool Congress won’t spare him” and “there will likely be zero tolerance for corruption”.
