TMC MPs allege misuse of CBI in Saradha case

Party spokesperson, Derek O’Brien said, “We have passed nine bills in this session. But now, unless PM comes to Rajya Sabha, we won’t let it function. Onus is now on government to run the House.”

“Some Union Minister is making statement that Gita should be declared as national granth, another Modi’s minister are abusing in public and now conversion besides incidents of riots. We as opposition leaders will not tolerate this. We want the PM to come and participate in the debate on the rising communal incidents in the country and the conversion row,” he added.

Since morning TMC MPs were seen raising slogans outside the Parliament complex against the NDA government and also protested inside the House demanding stern action against those involved in the conversion row.

On the context of misusing the CBI, they questioned “What action has CBI taken in the Rs 47,000 crore Pearls Agrotech Corporation Limited (PACL) Ponzi scam?”

Presently, PACL Ponzi scam, owned by Nirmal Bhangoo, is considered as the highest amount being investigated by the CBI. PACL has accumulated more than 47,000 Crore (as a single company), which will match the entire ponzi schemes in Bengal, Assam, and in Orissa.

“Why the NDA government is so cooperative when it comes to Bhangoo because he is close to BJP and Akali leaders in Punjab?” questions raised by the TMC leaders.

“It is surprising that even after registering case against Bhangoo, CBI has not arrested him even for a day. Don’t you think that CBI is acting on behest of the BJP? His group has sponsored Rs 35 crore for the mega Kabaddi event for three years organized by Deputy Chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, who is close to BJP. Did the Modi government have taken any action against him?’ he asked.
