Narada sting operation case: Here’s all you need to know about the case that can well affect Mamata Banerjee’s political future.
Trinamool has been at the loggerheads with the Modi government over the issue of demonetisation and the arrest of its two MPs by CBI in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam.
Mamata also lashed out at the government over the arrest of TMC MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay in connection with the Rose Valley Scam.
Hitting out at the prime minister, Banerjee said, “To save country, let a national government be formed. Advaniji, Rajnathji or Jaitleyji can head it. Current situation is unacceptable.”
CBI and ED officials have maintained that the Rose Valley scam is “six times” bigger than the Rs 2,460 crore Saradha scam.
Banerjee, along with Rahul Gandhi and some regional parties, had sought to put up a united face raising the pitch against demonetisation by demanding the resignation of Modi.
“We will wait for the next three days. But Modi, if things remain unsolved, will you take the responsibility and resign as the Prime Minister of the country,” she asked.
Lashing out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandh Prasad said “he must answer about the corruption that took place during the UPA rule.
Singh further accused the TMC’s minority wing of terrorising a particular community.
Mamata voiced her concern over the “unprecedented misery and suffering” of the common people due to demonetisation in a letter to the RBI Governor.
“RBI is a big institution. We respect it. It should not be politically misused,” Banerjee said.
Ghosh had earlier said, “She (Mamata) went to Delhi and held protests unopposed. We could have dragged her by her hair and thrown her out if we wanted.”
Dilip Ghosh earlier said the BJP could have “dragged her (Mamata Banerjee) by her hair” in Delhi.
In the letter, the JeM members threatened to kill Mamata Banerjee and blow the Howrah Railway station by improvised explosive device (IED) if his demand for Rs 50 crore was not met.
Mamata Banerjee wrote: “They don’t know how to write to a chief minister. They are using the Army to achieve their political purpose.”
