Share post:


Kolkata: Trinamool Congress National General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Tuesday dashed off a letter to the ED following a summon from the latter.

In the letter, Banerjee said, ” I am unable to appreciate the scope and purport of the summon under reference inasmuch as you have sought information/documents which do not have any connection with the public speech delivered by me on 29.03.2023 and therefore, are beyond the scope of the directions passed by the Hon’ble Court in the aforesaid matter. ”

“At present, I am not in Kolkata and travelling as part of a State wide yatra to connect with the people of West Bengal. Further, since the panchayat elections for the State of West Bengal have been declared to be held on 08.07.2023, I am engaged in preparing for the same, ” he added.

” It is not out of place to mention that most of the information/documents sought for are already available with appropriate government authorities/departments. Be that as it may, the

information/documents requisitioned by your office in the summon under reference date to a decade, which are voluminous in nature and I am in the process of collating such information/documents, ” Banerjee stated.

“Having said so, I would like to seek clarification from your office pertaining to the scope and purport of your ensuing investigation pursuant to which the summon under reference has been issued upon me, ” he said.

“I am ready and willing to extend my co-operation with your ensuing investigation within the permissible limits of law, ” he said.
