New Delhi: TMC has taken strict action against Partha Chatterjee arrested in the Bengal teacher recruitment scam. Today he was removed from the post of minister. After this, he was also removed from all party posts and suspended from TMC till the investigation continues. TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee gave this information in Kolkata.
He said that Partha Chatterjee has been removed from TMC along with the general secretary, national vice president and three other posts. He has been suspended till the investigation continues. Can come back if proven not guilty.
Abhishek Banerjee told that CM Mamta Banerjee took the decision to remove Partha Chatterjee minister from the post. The investigation of this matter is ongoing. If anyone does wrong, TMC will not spare him. There will be zero tolerance for corruption. The investigating agency has to complete the investigation within the time limit. Nothing happened even in the Sharda case, it just hangs. There should be a time-bound investigation.
'Arpita Mukherjee has nothing to do with TMC'
Arpana Mukherjee from whose house the money was recovered is not associated with TMC. We want strict action against the people involved in this matter. Actually, Arpita is close to Partha Chatterjee, from whose different houses the ED has recovered Rs 40 crore and gold.
TMC is the only party which intervened in this matter within 7 days.
I agree that a huge amount has been recovered. At the same time, while taking a jibe at BJP, he said that bank frauds are happening every day, what action did BJP take? Nirav Modi flew away, did BJP sack Nirmala Sitharaman? It is only TMC which has this power.
