SANDESHKHALI(WB): A Trinamool Congress MP today cautioned that if West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was arrested by the CBI in the Saradha chit-fund scam, the state would be on fire, claiming that she had no role in the scam.
Idris Ali reportedly made the statement at a public rally and is seen as an open and direct threat to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
“Mamata Banerjee is not only the ‘agnikanya’ of West Bengal, but of India also. If she is touched or arrested then Bengal will be on fire. In that fire lot of people will die,” MP Idris Ali also said at a meeting here in North 24-Parganas district.
The MP claimed that neither the Trinamool Congress nor Banerjee had any role in the Saradha scam.
“People will not accept it if anyone tries to defame her,” the party leader said.
Meanwhile, according to reports another TMC MP Satabdi Roy is likely to be summoned by CBI in connection with the ongoing probe.
