West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee to continue her ‘Dharna’ politics, CBI to move to Supreme Court seeking contempt of court

High drama taking place in Kolkata. Stay tuned as we bring you the latest.

The state of West Bengal is amidst massive chaos as the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has resorted to ‘dharna’ politics to allegedly save herself from Saradha chit fund scam investigation. In unprecedented scenes, the Kolkata Police had forcefully detained eight CBI officials who had gone to visit police commissioner Rajeev Kumar to obtain crucial information regarding the Saradha scam.

According to the reports, the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who had announced sit-in protest over CBI’s attempt to question the Kolkata Police chief is set to continue her ‘Dharna’ politics till as she claims that “the country and its Constitution are saved”.

Mamata Banerjee reportedly skipped her meals and remained awake the whole night on a makeshift dais along with some senior ministers and party members. Interestingly, Rajeev Kumar, who was reportedly absconding from the CBI officials had joined the West Bengal CM at the dharna spot. Many other top cops had also joined the dharna as per reports.

“This is a Satyagraha and I’ll continue till the country is saved,” Banerjee said while speaking to the media.

The Central Bureau of Investigation will move the Supreme Court on Monday after a face-off with Kolkata Police officials on Sunday. The CBI will inform the Supreme Court about the non-cooperation of the Bengal government and its police. The CBI has accused the West Bengal government of preventing the investigation of a Supreme Court-ordered probe into two Ponzi schemes and is expected to demand action against the state government and its police.

However, the Central Bureau of Investigation has also expressed fear over the destruction of evidence after the Kolkata police had taken charge of all evidence and seized all documents. Interim CBI Chief M Nageshwar Rao said that a lot of evidence is being destroyed or being caused to disappear. Earlier, too, the CBI had claimed that the West Bengal government was obstructing investigation in Saradha Chit Fund scam. It has alleged that the “hostile” government is delaying the filing of the final charge sheet.

Meanwhile, a delegation led by senior Bharatiya Janata Party leaders to meet the Chief Election Commissioner tomorrow to complain about the West Bengal government led by Mamata Banerjee blocking rallies of senior BJP leaders in the state.

The West Bengal government led by Mamata Banerjee seems to be fearful of the BJP as earlier she denied permission for landing Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s helicopter when he was to address a rally in the state. Later, Yogi addressed the rally through the telephone. In January, the West Bengal government had denied permission for landing to BJP President Amit Shah’s chopper for a rally in Malda.

Prior to that, after being denied permission for their proposed ‘rath yatra‘ or the ‘Gantantra Bachao yatra’ in West Bengal, BJP had announced dates for the public meetings the party intends to carry out in the state of West Bengal.
