"Today, she (Banerji) alleged that CBI officials were threatening to contact his party workers with the BJP, otherwise jailed in the chit fund scam," Ghosh told reporters here.

Banerjee alleged that the BJP wants to repeat the "purchase of (bills) in Karnataka in Bengal and is offering two crore rupees cash and one petrol pump to each Trinamool Congress MLA. Reacting to this, Ghosh said that no Trinamool Congress MLA has such a high 'market value'. Even if they stand on the road, they will not take any interest in buying them. Even Banerjee does not have such a high 'market value'. In fact, the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are conducting separate investigations into the multi-crore ponzi scam in West Bengal.
