Calcutta: National General Secretary of TMC and nephew of Mamata Banerjee, Abhishek Banerjee has been summoned by the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) in reference to the coal case. He has been summoned to appear before the ED workplace in Kolkata on Friday (September 2).
The ED filed a criticism below the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002, based mostly on a November 2020 FIR registered by the CBI which alleged a multi-crore coal theft rip-off linked to the Eastern Coalfields Limited mines within the Kunustoria and Kajora areas of the state in and round Asansol.
On Monday August 29, Abhishek clashed with BJP and Amit Shah’s son and BCCI secretary Jay Shah at a rally. BJP leaders are the largest beneficiaries of the cattle smuggling affair, senior TMC official Abhishek Banerjee claimed on Monday. “They are talking about cattle smuggling scams. It is the BJP leaders who are the biggest beneficiaries of this scam. The ill-gotten money was transferred to New Delhi to the BJP leaders,” he alleged . “Why would not Amit Shah ask BSF how the cattle are smuggled? Is the cash going straight to Delhi? It’s not a cattle rip-off, it is a ministry rip-off smuggled cattle if the BSF is doing its job correctly? The Union Home Secretary is accountable to the nation,” he claimed.
Banerjee has additionally focused Jay Shah after a video clip of him showing to refuse a suggestion to wave the nationwide flag after India beat Pakistan in an exciting cricket match went viral. “We saw yesterday how after India’s victory over Pakistan, the son of Home Secretary Jay Shah refused to hold our national flag. And these BJP leaders claim to be the architects of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga,” stated the TMC MP for Diamond Harbor. . .
