The Enforcement Directorate is all set to question TMC Member of Parliament and party national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee in connection with the alleged coal smuggling case today. He has been summoned to appear before the investigating officer of the case in New Delhi today for questioning in a money laundering case linked to the alleged coal scam in West Bengal. Abhishek, the nephew of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, was summoned along with his wife Rujira for questioning in an alleged coal scam.
I am ready to face any and every kind of investigation," Banerjee said. He added that despite it being a case of Kolkata, he was summoned to New Delhi. "Having lost the elections and failing to tackle Trinamool Congress politically, they (BJP) are now seeking revenge," he claimed. He further said, "I reiterate what I had said in November at public meetings that if any central agency can prove my involvement in any illegal transaction of even 10 paise, there will be no need to hold any CBI or ED probe, I will walk up the podium and get myself hanged publicly."
He alleged that the BJP has no other job than to use the investigating agencies to fulfill their political interests, adding that he would like to invite any BJP leader to sit face to face with him and discuss what the central agencies have done in the last five years and the fate of the country in the seven-year-rule of the Narendra Modi government.
