On Tuesday, Suvendu Adhikari, the Leader of the Opposition (LoP) for West Bengal, criticized the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC administration. He also requested that the federal authorities look into the Chief Minister’s role in the Saradha scam. Abhishek Banerjee received a new notification from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and BJP’s Mr. Adhikari praised the agency’s “prompt” and “proactive” response.

CBI on Tuesday asked Abhishek Banerjee to appear before them about the state’s teacher recruitment scam. “The work the CBI is doing is excellent and proactive. The agency is working quickly despite the state government’s blatant lack of cooperation. Jiban Krishna Saha, TMC MLA attempted to steal the cops’ phones and tried to destroy the evidence. The CBI’s response in light of this action is appropriate, and it should continue; otherwise, Mamata and her men will delete all the evidence”, said Adhikari.

He further urged the CBI to investigate Mamata Banerjee in connection to the Saradha scam. “Several cases are going on against Abhishek Banerjee. I just urge the CBI to take action against Mamata and Abhishek. Mamata’s involvement in the Saradha scandal is a subject for CBI to look into, but it is not doing so. Why can’t Mamata be questioned if Delhi CM Kejriwal is questioned on the excise policy matter?” Adhikari enquired.

“Similarly, there is substantial evidence against Abhishek Banerjee regarding the participation of his numerous family members. Bengal’s citizens are inquiring as to why no action is being taken against him. Additionally, I keep bringing up this subject throughout rallies and campaigns. Why doesn’t he file a defamation case against me if I’m lying?” Adhikari further adds.

When asked about rumors that TMC leader Mukul Roy will join the BJP, Adhikari responded right away, “Our party doesn’t need such people.”
