Mukul lashes out at Left, claims TMC leader not involved in Shradha scam

Speaking to the Millennium Post, Roy rubbished the allegation made by the suspended Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh, who was arrested on 23 November, and questioned why no one is asking the Left Front leaders including Asim Dasgupta, former chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and CPI (M) district secretary Sujan Chakraborty about the Saradha scam.

‘We are demanding a high level probe against them because it was during their tenure the company was formed 20 years ago. The former finance minister have to answer on what basis such company was allowed to function whose main business was chit fund,’ he said.

When asked whether he, on behalf of the party, will demand for a CBI inquiry against the Left leaders, Roy said, ‘We don’t trust CBI. If you go through the records, they have failed to solve 99 cases out of 100. For us its not the Central Bureau of Investigation but now a days it has become Congress Bureau of Investigation’.  ‘I am demanding the role of CPI (M) leaders in the growth of Saradha chit fund network in Bengal. We are hopeful that law will take its own course and action will taken against them,’ he said.

Reacting on Roy’s allegation, CPI (M) central secretariat member Nilotpal Basu, said, ‘We have already intensified our agitation against the Trinamool Congress leaders across the country for their involvement in the chit fund scam. We have full faith on the judiciary and hopeful that probe will be ordered against them.’

CPI (M) central committee member, Gautam Deb, lambasted West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and demanded her arrest. He also demanded Roy’s (Mukul Roy) arrest for his connection with the chit fund scam. ‘It is unfortunate that Kunal was arrested before Mamata and Mukul. They should be arrested first. We will take appropriate steps to take the matter in the national level for a high level inquiry,’ he said.
