Kolkata: Without making any direct comment on the Trinamool Congress' alleged involvement in the Saradha scam, AICC general secretary C P Joshi today said any government has to face the consequence of misgovernance and misrule.
“Since the probe is being conducted by the CBI on the directive of the Supreme Court, I don't like to make any comment. However, any government has to face the consequence of misgovernance and misrule,” Joshi said when asked for his reaction on the arrest of several TMC leaders.
Joshi held a meeting with Congress workers in the state, ahead of the civic polls next year and the Assembly election a year later, to strengthen the organisation. WBPCC president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, on the other hand, asserted that TMC's political future was at a critical juncture and claimed that there could be more trouble for other leaders of the party.
“The TMC is fast losing its credibility and confidence of people with the development. A number of leaders and ministers are even living in panic,” he claimed. “Whoever commits crime, should face the consequence and those who have cheated people should be punished,” Chowdhury said.
He dismissed Mamata Banerjee's allegation that the BJP became vindictive after she attended the 125th birth anniversary of Jawharlal Nehru in Delhi, saying “the entire TMC party is involved in the Saradha scam. I don't agree about involvement of any party in any such alleged conspiracy.”
“Mamata Banerjee could have invited CBI on her own to probe the scam before other parties made the demand. This could have kept her image high,” he observed. “With the latest development, the TMC now stood entirely exposed with its involvement in the scam,” Chowdhury said.
