Former Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh, who is in CBI custody for alleged involvement in the multi-crore Saradha scam, has accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of being the biggest beneficiary of the irregularities.
While being taken to the court on Monday, Ghosh lost his cool and called Mamata a coward. He demanded that the CM be questioned in his presence.
“She (Mamata Banerjee) is the biggest Saradha scam beneficiary. She is a coward, should be made to sit in front of me and questioned,” said Ghosh who was produced before the sessions court in connection with the case.
“CBI is being misused by those in power in Delhi. There is whole conspiracy going against us,” the Chief Minister of West Bengal said.
Furthermore, defending her party on Burdwan blast accusations, she said, “Bangladeshis are our neighbours and brothers. Terrorists are terrorists and they have no country or religion. Our party has no link with it.”
Mamata had on Saturday accused the BJP of stage-managing the Burdwan blasts. And yesterday, party MP Derek O’Brien said the “stage-managed” blasts were “part of the BJP’s devious master plan, concerted strategy used even during PM’s poll campaign in (West) Bengal”.
Meanwhile, suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh today alleged that Banerjee was the “biggest beneficiary” in the Saradha ponzi scheme scam
“Mamata Banerjee is the biggest beneficiary. She is holding party workers’ meetings to save herself,” Ghosh charged.
Speaking outside Bankshall Court after being brought from Presidency Correctional Home, he said, “She is a coward. She should be made to sit in front of me and questioned”.
Ghosh reiterating his demand for a joint questioning by the CBI in the scam.
Ghosh had allegedly tried to commit suicide in Presidency Jail on November 15 demanding the arrest of “real culprits” in the case.
