Himanta Biswa Sarma Involved in Saradha Scam: Mamata Banerjee
GUWAHATI: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has started a dharna to ‘save the Constitution’ after a CBI team tried to enter the residence of Kolkata police commissioner, Rajeev Kumar to interrogate him in the Saradha Scam.
Rajeev Kumar was heading a SIT on the Saradha and Rose Valley scams.
Mamata alleged that BJP’s Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had been involved in the multi-crore Saradha Scam.
“He (Himanta) was investigated in the case before he joined the BJP but now he has gone scot-free,” said Mamata Banerjee, adding that the Modi-Shah combine had politicised the Saradha case just before the 2019 polls.
It is to be mentioned that the CBI is firm in interrogating Rajeev Kumar, hence said that if required CBI will move the Supreme Court and the Governor and deploy the central force if required.
