After RS yesterday, TMC raises the issue of CBI raid at Delhi CMO in LS
After Rajya Sabha yesterday, Trinamool Congress led the charge in Lok Sabha against the Centre over CBI raids at the Delhi Chief Minister’s office.
Leader of the party in Lok Sabha, Sudip Bandyopadhyay criticised the CBI in strongest terms, calling the incident a blot on federal structure of the country.
“In a federal structure in a democracy how can the office of a Chief Minister be raided by the CBI?” he asked. In a democracy, the Chief Minister of the States are also elected by the people. It pains me that CBI raided the CMO, Sudip Bandyopadhyay said while adding that the CBI had become GBI (Gujarat Bureau of Investigation).
“The files the CBI searched, it is said, belonged to the DDCA. Let there be a Joint Parliamentary Committee to investigate this,” Sudip Banerjee added.
As the Leader of Trinamool in Lok Sabha, Sudip Bandyopadhyay was speaking, The Chief Minister of Delhi was following his speech on Twitter. Mr Arvind Kejriwal also retweeted several tweets of Sudip Bandyopadhyay’s speech.
