Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday asserted that law will take its course and no one found guilty of wrongdoing will be spared.
Asked about Trinamool Rajya Sabha member Kunal Ghosh,who was the CEO of the media unit of Saradha group,Mamata said: Law will take its course. No one will be spared if,as an MP,any wrong was done. But if journalists worked in the chit fund-funded companies,what can be done? she asked.
I took one journalist from the Urdu press,one from Bengali and one from Hindi (for Rajya Sabha membership). If the person (Ghosh) is involved in any illegal transaction,law will take its own course.
Asked if her government received gifts like ambulances and bicycles from Saradha group,which were later distributed among the poor,Mamata said she was not aware who had giving what. How do you know where their money was coming from? You cannot blame us for that, she said.
She alleged that Left newspapers had been receiving advertisements from chit funds. CPM leaders,mediapersons are also involved. I can spell out the names. Saradha was started in 2006 and we were not in power at that time. They are the people who are now shedding crocodile tears and spreading calumny about us. But I am hell-bent on protecting the interests of the general investors. I am rough and tough, Mamata said.
