Mamata Intensifies Attack on Modi Govt, Releases Letter Claiming BJP Leader Himanta Sarma’s Involvement in Saradha Fund Scam

Mamata Intensifies Her Attack on Modi Govt, Releases Letter Claiming BJP Leader Himanta Sarma’s Involvement in Saradha Fund Scam

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today intensified her attack on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central Government and the CBI alleging that the investigating agency went soft on its probe against leaders after they joined the BJP.

Releasing a letter written by Sudipta Sen of Saradha Group to the CBI, in which Sen accuses BJP leader and Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma of cheating him of at least Rs 3 crore, Mamata said that those who joined the BJP are safe and those who are raising their voice are facing the wrath.

Sarma was investigated in the case before he joined the BJP but now he has gone scot-free, the West Bengal CM alleged.

In his letter dated April 6, 2013 to CBI’s Anti-Corruption Branch in Kolkata, Sen wrote, “Another high-level person has dramatically cheated me. He is Mr Hemanta Biswa Sarma. For the last six months, apart one and half years, he has taken from us not less than less Rs 3 crore all by cash and some vouchers have been signed by his office executives by some other means. This amount is also to be returned to the company for paying up the Bengal area creditors because this amount has always been given from Calcutta office.”

Releasing the letter, the Trinalmol Congress supremo said that the agency is acting on the instructions of Modi babu (Prime Minister Narendra Modi).

“Why is the CBI not taking action against those BJP leaders who took money from the chit fund companies?” Mamata asked.

 This cannot be tolerated in India. There is an urgent need to save institutions, she said.

Sarma had joined the BJP in 2016 after quitting the Congress.
