Mamata’s nephew attacks Shah


Share post:


Kolkata: AITC General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee has hit out at Union Home Minister Amit Shah after being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate over a coal scam, triggering an angry response from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“This is not a coal or cattle scam, it is the Home Minister’s scam,” a Trinamool Congress statement quoted Abhishek Banerjee as saying.

“The biggest pappu in the country is Amit Shah. States where the BJP does not have a government, they let the CBI and ED loose,” Banerjee said.

He said the case was registered in 2020 and he and wife Rujira Banerjee have been summoned several times but the net results were zero.

“I have submitted a written statement today (Friday) and had done the same in the past two years. People have seen that whenever I have been summoned, I have gone out of my way to cooperate with the investigation. My wife has been called twice by the CBI and once by the ED.

“Together, we have appeared before the agencies six times and have been questioned for around 60 hours. But the net results remains zero,” Banerjee said.

In response, BJP’s co-in-charge of West Bengal, Amit Malviya, said: “Someone needs to tell Mamata Banerjee’s nephew that he is being investigated by the agencies for corruption and not Satyagraha.”
