Leader of the Opposition Surya Kanta Mishra on Friday termed Saradha scam as the biggest scam in the state and accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of trying to confuse people that she knew nothing about Saradha Group. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is also responsible for this. She was distributing bicycles and ambulances,which were provided by chit fund company Saradha Group. Now,she is saying that she didnt know anything about Saradha Group before Poila Baisakh (Bengali New year). She is confusing the common people by saying this, he said.
Alleging that a number of Trinamool ministers and MPs are involved in the scam,the senior CPM leader demanded an exemplary punishment for those involved in it. Criticising Mamata for shying away from a CBI probe,Mishra said: When she (Mamata) was not in power,she used to demand CBI Inquiry in all incidents. But unfortunately,she is not demanding any CBI inquiry now, he said.
