KOLKATA: TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is in the forefront of anti- demonetisation protests, today said a senior party leader Sudip Bandopadhyay has received three calls from CBI but that will not deter the party from fighting the note ban.
Banerjee said the Trinamool Congress (TMC) will not be cowed down by the "Centre's tactics of browbeating my party."
Stating that Bandopadhyay, who is TMC parliamentary party leader in Lok Sabha, has received three calls from the Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI), she said, "Nothing will deter us from the fight against demonetisation".
When contacted, Bandopadhyay told PTI that he has received three calls from CBI.
"I called them (CBI) back. They said you have to come to our office", he said.
Bandopadhyay is also the chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Railways.
Banerjee had yesterday attacked the Modi government, saying it did not understand the hardship faced by people who had turned 'fakirs' after demonetisation.
"Realising the people's difficulties, Venezuela withdrew the decision on demonetisation, but the Modi government doesn't listen to anyone," she had said.
