Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Sunday demanded Leader of Opposition in West Bengal Assembly Suvendu Adhikari and BJP National Vice President Dilip Ghosh be brought under the scanner of central agencies in the investigations of SSC job scam for the sake of fair and impartial investigation.
BJP countered it saying TMC is getting scared as the complicity of more of its leaders in the recruitment scam is coming up every day.
Trinamool Congress state general secretary and spokesperson Kunal Ghosh told reporters Adhikari, when he was with TMC, had been instrumental in giving jobs to more than 100 persons as Group D staff in state-run and state-aided schools and of them several have been retrenched as ordered by the high court.
The TMC spokesperson further claimed the land deed of Dilip Ghosh had been found from the residence of an SSC scam accused Prasanna Roy, who is currently in CBI custody, and hence the former BJP state chief should also be interrogated.
“Before pointing fingers at TMC, before maligning our party, let Suvendu and Dilip-da be interrogated by central agencies at the earliest. Why is Suvendu not being brought under scanner though he was instrumental in giving jobs to 150 Group D employees of whom 55 have been sacked as directed by the hon’ble high court. He was with TMC then. Is he not being touched because of his association with BJP now.
“We want the whole truth to come out, we will cooperate with investigating agencies and if anyone associated with TMC is found to be involved let the law take its course,” the TMC state general secretary added..
He accused central agencies of adopting “preferential treatment” towards BJP leaders and said “if the probe covers wider ambit that would help in the investigations.”
