NEW DELHI: Nothing happens in the Trinamool Congress (TMC) without the approval of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, said Sukanta Majumdar, the state chief of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He blamed the TMC supremo for Bengal’s corruption.

“Without the direction of Mamata Banerjee, Partha Chatterjee couldn’t have anything because it is a very common saying in West Bengal that there is only one post in TMC and that is Mamata Banerjee, others are lamp posts,” Majumdar told The New Indian.

More than Rs 50 crore in cash was recovered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) from Chatterjee’s close aide Arpita Mukherjee’s residence in connection with the teachers’ recruitment scam. Valuables worth crores were also recovered from Mukherjee’s houses.

The New Indian also revealed how 19 more ministers and senior leaders of the TMC are under the scanner of the ED for amassing huge wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income. “If the investigation continues into the case, all corrupt leaders will be behind bars,” Majumdar said.

Last week, CM Banerjee called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi during her visit to the national capital to attend the NITI Aayog Governing Council meeting. The meeting caused much heartburn in the West Bengal BJP as the party unit wanted PM Modi to deny Banerjee an audience.

Majumdar said that such meetings are used by Banerjee to create an impression that “TMC has an understanding with PM Narendra Modi”. He expressed confidence that no one guilty in West Bengal would be spared.

Majumdar admitted that during and after the post-poll violence in West Bengal, the BJP cadre felt abandoned but the situation has improved now. “I have no hesitation in accepting that we could not stand with our cadre as they had expected…in my first speech after taking over as West Bengal BJP chief, I asked for their forgiveness,” Majumdar said.
