New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said her fight against demonetization would continue and accused the Narendra Modi government of resorting to “vendetta politics” after TMC parliamentary party leader in Lok Sabha Sudip Bandopadhyay was called by the CBI.
“Why is BJP govt doing vendetta politics? Our party LS leader got 3 calls from CBI. Nothing will deter us from fight against #DeMonetization”, the Trinamool Congress supremo said in a statement. She further said, “I read that new rules were announced today also. Every day a decision is changed it means this is an unstable government”. “Imagine the situation in an area where there is no bank! There is cash crunch as well as bank crunch”, she added. Bandopadhyay told PTI that he has received three calls from CBI.
“I called them (CBI) back. They said you have to come to our office,” Bandopadhyay, who is also the chairman of Railway Standing Committee, said. Refuting the TMC’s charge of vendetta politics, BJP asked why is TMC afraid of CBI investigation if it has done no wrong and urged it to cooperate.
“CBI is an autonomous body. Bandopadhyay should cooperate with CBI investigation. It is TMC’s duty to do so. Instead of crying vendetta politics to gain sympathy, the party should cooperate with the probe,” BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh said.
