Kolkata: Stepping up attack on Mamata Banerjee after the arrest of TMC MP Srinjoy Bose, BJP today said the Chief Minister should start writing her resignation as she cannot remain in denial and has to answer the lakhs of poor investors who became victims of Saradha chit fund scam.
"Dots are joining and will finally land at the doorstep of Mamata Banerjee. Srinjoy Bose is a big leader of TMC who knows lot about Saradha scam. He is the second MP of TMC arrested in the scam. Mamata Banerjee cannot remain in denial and she has to answer the 17 lakh poor people who have been robbed by the TMC leadership and the Saradha group," BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh said.
Singh's was reacting to the arrest of Bose by the Special Crime branch of CBI after a marathon interrogation for his alleged involvement in the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.
Taking cue from Banerjee's comment few days back when she said she would quit if allegations of her closeness to the ponzi company was proved, Singh said, "I think Mamata Banerjee should start writing the (resignation) letter at least."
"TMC is now a Chit party and a cheat party," he said.
