Won’t be cowed down by CBI notice to wife: Abhishek Banerjee
Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee on Sunday asserted that the party will not be cowed down by the CBI notice to his wife Rujira, asking her to join the probe in a coal pilferage case
Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee on Sunday asserted that the party will not be cowed down by the CBI notice to his wife Rujira, asking her to join the probe in a coal pilferage case.
The notice had asked Rujira to be present at their Harish Mukherjee Road residence at 3 pm to reply to queries related to the case.
"If they think they can use these ploys to intimidate us, they are mistaken. We are not the ones who would ever be cowed down," Abhishek, the nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, said in a tweet.
"We have full faith in the law of the land," he added.
The Trinamool Congress hit out at the Centre on Sunday, alleging political vendetta as the CBI served a notice to party MP Abhishek Banerjee's wife, asking her to join the probe in the coal pilferage case.
In a statement, the party said that people will give a befitting reply to the BJP over this during the polls.
So predictable. So desperate. All BJP allies have left them. So the only loyal allies are CBI and ED," it stated.
"CBI is the only ally of the BJP left," it added.
The party said it was not scared and will fight it out.
Trinamool Congress spokesperson and MP Sougata Roy alleged the CBI visiting Abhishek's house was nothing but political vendetta.
"The way BJP was targeting Abhishek for the last few days prove that they were up to something," he said.
