KOLKATA: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday attacked the nephew of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and TMC heir apparent Abhishek Banerjee alleging the youth leader has built a Rs100 crore bungalow even as Mamata wants to project her down-to-earth image by wearing hawai slippers.

The salvo by BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya came after Mamata Banerjee on Thursday called for his prosecution after the alleged kingpin of Jalpaiguri child trafficking racket, Chandana Chakraborty indicated his involvement in the racket.

"Even as Mamata wears hawai slippers, her nephew has built Rs100-crore bungalow. How did her relatives make so much money? Where is the money coming from? We have evidence related to the list of properties owned by Mamata's relatives and will expose it soon," he said.

However, the BJP leader did not provide any basis or evidence for his allegations.

Speaking at a public meet here on Friday, Vijayvargiya also dared Mamata Banerjee to arrest BJP leaders. Mamata had stated that BJP leaders would be arrested in lakhs if a single TMC leader is arrested. Vijayvargiya also blasted the West Bengal government for alleged 'minority appeasement' policies.

Claiming that chit fund scams doubled from Rs15,000 crore to Rs 30,000 crore from the Left Front regime to TMC regime, Vijayvargiya said those found guilty in the scams would be awarded appropriate punishment.
