TMC Bribery Sting: CPI-M Questions Mamata’s Silence, Ruckus In Parliament

The CPI(M) on Wednesday questioned the “complete silence” of Mamata Banerjee over the sting video purportedly showing three TMC ministers and some party MPs and MLAs as accepting bribes from a fictitious firm saying it “proves high-level of corruption” in the state.
Attacking Banerjee on the issue, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury reminded the West Bengal Chief Minister that she had quit the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government when a similar sting video was released in 2001.
Alleging “corrupt ways” by TMC, Yechury reiterated the recent sting only reaffirms that making money the poor people of Bengal is a norm for the government.
In his Facebook post, Yechury also welcomed reported remarks by former state election commission chief Mira Pande that EC should take adequate measures for fair polls and “restoring” democracy in West Bengal.
