Kolkata: West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh Wednesday slammed chief minister Mamata Banerjee for her comments against the Central agencies and wondered if she has not committed any wrong then why is she afraid of the probe bodies.
Mr Ghosh accused Ms Banerjee of speaking the language of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on the Kashmir issue and taking a stance which is completely opposite to the interest of the country.
“If she and her party have committed no wrong then why is she afraid of Central investigating agencies. The state government has filed 28,000 cases against our party workers and leaders across the state. Have we ever cribbed over it? We are fighting it politically, legally and democratically,” Mr Ghosh, MP, said over phone.
“Whoever has committed any wrong or is involved in corruption will not be spared,” Mr Ghosh said.
If CBI or ED are summoning someone to bring out the truth through investigation then what is the harm in it.If someone has committed no wrong then he or she has nothing to worry about. The CBI investigation in Saradha Chit fund case is being held under the instructions of Supreme Court. Why is TMC crying political vendetta over it? It means they have something to hide, Mr Ghosh said.
He added, “Has the CBI arrested or summoned any innocent person? Only the suspects were called. Ms Banerjee feels when the CBI could arrest P. Chidambaram, its reach will also cover Kalighat. The CBI can summon anyone. Our leaders were called, arrested and put behind bars. We fought cases leading to their acquittal by the court. If she considers herself innocent, she will be freed by the court. Those who have committed sin, feel fear.”
Ms Banerjee while addressing a party rally dared the Centre to arrest her for raising her voice against the government, asserting that she “will not bow down before the BJP”.
While speaking on Kashmir issue, Ms Banerjee on Wednesday accused the BJP-led central government of using brute force to scuttle the voices of dissent in the Kashmir Valley.
Mr Ghosh alleged that Ms Banerjee is speaking language of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan as part of her “muslim- appeasement policy”.
“It seems she is busy in appeasing minority community that is why she has started speaking the language of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. Whatever Imran Khan is saying, she is just repeating it.
When Kashmir is heading towards a new era of development, such a statement from a chief minister of a country is against the interest of the nation,” the BJP state president said.
