A Division Bench of the Calcutta High Court will pass an order in the contempt case filed against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday. On August 14, Mamata had made the ‘contentious’ remarks in the state Assembly on the alleged corruption in the judiciary.

As per the directive of the Bench consisting of Acting Chief Justice Pratap Kumar Ray and Justice Subal Baidya, print and electronic media houses have filed their affidavits on Mamata’s comments. On Wednesday, former Kolkata mayor and advocate Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya had stated that Mamata’s derogatory comments were far more detrimental than State Minister Becharam Manna’s recent comments for which a contempt notice has been slapped on him. Manna had alleged that the CPM and Tata Motors had colluded to get a favourable verdict from the Calcutta High Court on the Singur land issue.
