While BJP president Amit Shah unleashed a blistering attack on West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, Trinamool Congress leaders tried to hit back, asking what action had been taken against Prime Minister Modi and the BJP president whose names allegedly featured in a red dairy recovered from Sahara chief Subrata Roy.
“Recently Sahara chief was arrested and a red diary was recovered. We heard Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s name features in the diary. What action has been taken against them?” asked panchayat minister Subrata Mukherjee at a press conference. The comment was also posted on the party’s website.
Roy was arrested on February 28 this year and is still behind the bars.
TMC leaders also alleged that the Centre was using the CBI to settle political vendetta.
“NIA and CBI have become political allies of BJP now. Do not forget WB government arrested the kingpin of chit funds, not the CBI. We returned `5 lakh to the people,” claimed Mukherjee.
The party also took a dig at the PM for his foreign tours. “The PM spent most of his time abroad in the last six months,” said Trinamool Congress secretary general and education minister Partha Chatterjee.
