Left Front Chairman Biman Bose on Friday asked West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to keep herself prepared for CBI interrogation in the wake of her cabinet colleague Madan Mitra’s arrest by CBI in the Saradha chit fund scam.
“Mamata Banerjee should now make herself prepared for CBI interrogation,” Bose told reporters at Malda Town station.
Bose, who demanded Mitra be sacked from the state cabinet with immediate effect, mocked at Banerjee’s complaint of “political vendetta” behind the arrest, which the Trinamool Congress supremo had also termed as unconstitutional.
“The questions do not arise. The moot question now centres around existence of the government,” the CPI(M) Politburo member said en-route to Raiganj for a party meet.
Bose’s comment came in the wake of Leader of Opposition in West Beengal Assembly Surjya Kanta Mishra having demanded immediate interrogation of the Chief Minister including others in the Saradha scam.
“Mamata Banerjee should be quizzed immediately in the Saradha scam,” Mishra, also a CPI(M) Politburo member told reporters in Kolkata.
