TMC dubs NSA Doval 'RSS sympathiser'; Mamata goes all-out against BJP over Saradha, Burdwan

Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress, it appears, has decided to take the BJP-led Centre head on over Saradha scam and Burdwan blasts accusations.

After boycotting the all-party meet called by the Centre on Sunday ahead of the Winter Session of Parliament beginning on Monday, Mamata today will launch a protest on the streets of Kolkata against the Centre's 'actions'.

And in Parliament, TMC MPs will hit out at the Narendra Modi government over issues like the repatriation of black money, FDI in insurance and communal riots.

Mamata had on Saturday accused the BJP of stage-managing the Burdwan blasts. And yesterday, party MP Derek O'Brien said the "stage-managed" blasts were "part of the BJP's devious master plan, concerted strategy used even during PM's poll campaign in (West) Bengal".

The TMC has also targeted National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, who had come calling to the state in the wake of the blasts and slammed the government of Mamata Banerjee for failing to check the the mushrooming of terror hubs.

Derek dubbed Doval as a "known RSS sympathiser", further alleging that “the gameplan has been hatched in the RSS headquarters”. He said all the facts will be out in the public within 48 hours.

The TMC has been in the dock recently over the Saradha chit fund scam and the Burdwan blasts. In the Saradha case, several TMC leaders are under the scanner of CBI – MP Srinjoy Bose has already been arrested while ministers Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Madan Mitra are facing questioning.
