What explains Mamata Banerjee’s pregnant silence in railway scandal

CBI has zeroed in on appointments made during tenure of Trinamool Congress in Railway Ministry.

As the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) zeroes in on appointments made during the tenure of the Trinamool Congress in the Railway Ministry to understand the process of top level appointments,political circles are abuzz about Mamata Banerjee’s unusual silence over the case of bribery in Railways.

Except for a statement by party spokesman Derek O’Brien on the day the news broke,the TMC has remained uncharacteristically oblivious of the issue.

Mamata Banerjee’s Facebook account has not said anything either. These days she is usually quick to react through Facebook on matters concerning the Centre. Neither has any party MP attacked the Centre over the case. The speculation is that if the probe does dig into the appointments done since 2009,many uncomfortable truths might tumble out.
