KOLKATA: West Bengal BJP president Rahul Sinha on Monday ridiculed the ruling Trinamool Congress for resorting to character assassination and political fraud, adding that the ruling party was cowering in fear following the massive response to BJP chief Amit Shah’s rally here on Sunday.
“As one leader after another of the TMC is being caught by the CBI for receiving funds from the Saradha chit fund scam, the TMC is now resorting to character assassination, the only political method known to them.
“The so-called ‘red diary’ has no names but only some initials. We had heard of such stories about diaries a long time ago and people remember the outcome of the investigation,” he remarked, commenting on the diary of jailed Subrata Group chief Subrata Roy, over which the TMC was targeting the BJP in retaliation for the CBI probe into the multi-crore Saradha scam.
Regarding his brother Sudip Sinha’s decision to join the TMC on Monday, Sinha chuckled, “How did he join the TMC on Monday? He had worked for the TMC in 2010 during the Kolkata Municipal Corporation polls, the state Assembly polls in 2011 and even the Lok Sabha elections in May.”
“The allegations that there is a split in the BJP family and Sudip is joining the TMC is nothing but a political fraud to fool the people,” he added.
