Saradha Scam Accused Alleges BJP Leader Took Money, Trinamool Seeks Action

Suvendu Adhikari only joined the BJP to protect himself, Trinamool leaders said.

Calcutta:

TMC Secretary-General Kunal Ghosh on Friday called for the arrest of West Bengal opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari, saying that the main suspect in the Saradha scam, Sudipto Sen, had claimed he was blackmailed by Adhikari.

“Sudipto Sen, the owner of Saradha, claimed in the prisoner’s petition that BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari blackmailed him and took money from him. We demand that the CBI take Suvendu Adhikari into custody immediately,” Kunal Ghosh said.

According to Mr Ghosh, the “original conspirators” of the Sardha scam are trying to evade authorities, adding that “Suvendu Adhikari only joined the BJP to protect himself”.

“There is a great conspiracy behind the Saradha scam. The original conspirators of the scam are trying to hide. Suvendu Adhikari joined the BJP just to protect himself,” Mr Ghosh said.

Earlier, Kunal Ghosh had called for the arrest of Mukul Roy in the Saradha and Narada case, while calling him a “BJP leader”.

Taking to Twitter, the TMC spokesman said: “CBI and ED should arrest BJP leader Mukul Roy in Saradha and Narada case. I have already sent you a letter praying for a joint interrogation with him. He is an influential conspirator. He used different parties just for his personal protection. Mukul Roy should not be spared.”

A new row has flared up in TMC over Mukul Roy, who left the BJP and joined the party in June last year following TMC’s landslide victory in the West Bengal Assembly polls.

The Saradha group of companies had allegedly scammed people by Rs 2,500 crore and promised higher returns on their investments.
