Congress mocks Mamata for 'campaigning' against CBI

Kolkata, May 9 : The Congress Thursday ridiculed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for "campaigning against the CBI", claiming that she was doing so to prevent the truth from coming out in the Saradha Group chit fund scam.

"A chief minister should not campaign against a central investigating agency. It is ridiculous for her to do so," state Congress president Pradip Bhattacharya said referring to a Banerjee post on a social networking site Wednesday.

"Please see what the Hon'ble Supreme Court has said - "CBI has become caged parrot speaking in master's voice". What do you think? Opinion please," Banerjee had posted on Facebook page.

Stating that the state government may reject a demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation probe, Bhattacharya said "it was unheard of a government campaigning against a central investigating agency".

"Trinamool Congress ministers including the chief minister are arguing against a CBI probe by stating irrational reasons only because of fear. They know a CBI probe will reveal information that might be dangerous for them," he said.
