Kolkata: The Congress on Saturday said it was totally against agencies of the West Bengal government investigating the Saradha chit fund scam and reiterated the demand for a CBI probe.
"We are totally against the state government making an investigation with its own agencies which will not bring out the truth," WBPCC president Pradip Bhattacharya said after a rally here.
"The Trinamool Congress government is directly involved in the Saradha scam and it is bent on safeguarding the names of the guilty," Bhattacharya said.
"Only a CBI probe will be able to unearth who are behind the scam and the role of the Trinamool Congress government and its party leaders as thousands of investors have been duped," he said.
The procession from Subodh Mullick Square in central Kolkata marched to the Shyambazar five-point crossing in the north of the metropolis.
