Mamata Banerjee: I challenge Modi and warns of legal battle over the arrest of TMC MP : On Tuesday, Chief Minister of West Bengal and chief of TMC Mamata Banerjee called for an emergency meeting following the arrest of her party’s senior leader Sudip Bandopadhyay in connection with the Rose Valley scam.
Mamata Banerjee said that if they think that after the arrest of TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay, we will not protest, they are wrong. I challenge PM, he cannot do anything, can’t suppress the voice of the people.
Banerjee said that over the arrest of Bandhopadhyay, the party will hold protest on Wednesday in Kolkata. The Chief Minister Mamata banerjee will hold a meeting with the MPs of the party at 5 pm at TMC headquarters.
The arrest of Bandhopadhyay, second in the case after TMC MP Tapas Pal, came as a big blow to Banerjee.
On Tuesday, after questioning him about his association with Rose Valley Group and its owner Goutam Kundu, the CBI arrested Bandhopadhyay.
Responding to the summons to face questioning, Bandopadhyay appeared before the special investigation team (SIT) of the CBI at CGO Complex in Salt Lake around 10.55 am.
As per the sources that CBI found that Bandopadhyay took favours from Rose Valley, such as foreign trips and receipt of hefty amount of money. In exchange, the TMC MP helped Kundu to run his business smoothly.
However, Sudip Bandopadhyay could not give satisfactory replies when he was asked about the favours, leading to his arrest.
