A day after the BJP alleged the involvement of TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee in a coal pilferage case, he on Monday dared the Central authorities to provoke a probe in opposition to “all culprits”.
“All coal assets fall directly under Centre & are guarded by the Central agencies. If BJP thinks TMC leaders got money from those illegally operating the coal assets, then what’s stopping Centre from investigating all culprits who failed to manage these national assets?” the Diamond Harbour MP stated.
“Also it is absolutely hilarious that according to BJP, Coal Ministry & Home Ministry officials were more keenly following TMC leaders’ orders than listening to their own bosses’ (Read Modi-Shah’s) commands! Whom are you fooling, @BJP4India?” learn one other tweet.
BJP chief Suvendu Adhikari on Sunday launched an audio dialog purportedly between an unidentified particular person and primary accused within the coal pilferage case Anup Majhi’s aide Ganesh Bagaria, and alleged Banerjee’s involvement. The TMC denied the allegation, saying the discharge was BJP’s try to sidestep actual points in view of its “impending defeat” within the Assembly polls. The Indian Express couldn’t independently confirm the content material of the audio clip and nor verify its authenticity. Adhikari alleged that TMC leaders had acquired as much as Rs 900 crore over 10-12 years.
Abhishek’s spouse Rujira, her sister Menaka Gambhir, her husband Ankush Arora and his father Pawan have been questioned by the CBI within the case.
