Saradha scam: Cong unhappy with Sibal for appearing for WB

Congress on Wednesday made known its unhappiness over its senior leader Kapil Sibal representing West Bengal government in the multi-crore Saradha scam in the Supreme Court, two days after its state unit expressed objection to it.

“I fully endorse the views expressed by the West Bengal Congress,” said C P Joshi, party general secretary in-charge of the state, making clear the unhappiness over the former Union Minister appearing in the SC for the government of rival Trinamool Congress. West Bengal Congress president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, on Monday said, “Sibal is a known face of the Congress and a former Union minister. He is representing the state government in the Saradha case in the Supreme court. We feel bad.”  Joshi said he has conveyed the sentiments of the state Congress unit to the party high command.  At the AICC briefing, Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala said Sibal, a prominent lawyer, should take note of the sentiments of the party unit in West Bengal.
