Mamata Banerjee Ends Three-Day Dharna

Mamata Banerjee Ends Three-Day Dharna

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today ended her three-day sit-in protest against the CBI’s action to raid the house of Kolkata Police Commissioner in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam.

Mamata, who has alleged that the central agency is acting on the instructions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, claimed her dharna is a victory for the constitution and democracy.

The West Bengal Chief Minister’s decision to end protest came after the apex court warned the CBI against using any coercive measure, including arrest, against Rajeev Kumar.

Addressing the media at Kolkata's Esplanade, Mamata said, “We are not stopping the fight, we are taking it to Delhi”.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, who arrived here today to meet Mamata and express his solidarity, said that they spoke to leaders, such as Sharad Pawar, Arvind Kejriwal, Sharad Yadav and reached at a consensus that the West Bengal Chief Minister should end this dharna.
 
“We will take up this issue in Delhi," Naidu said.
