Trinamool questions the credibility of ‘sting video’ in Parliament
Leader of the Trinamool Congress in Rajya Sabha, Derek O’Brien, today questioned the credibility of a ‘sting video’ being shown across TV channels over the last two days. Trinamool had given a Notice of Suspension of Rules under Rule 267 in the Upper House.
Derek O’Brien said that in this day of technology, the credibility of content in the video is under question. He also questioned the credibility of the people who conducted the sting operation.
“Foreign funds are coming in before elections. Calls were made to Dubai before the video was released. Let us not judge the content of the video. The credibility of the video must be questioned,” he iterated.
Asserting that the Opposition should fight the Trinamool Congress politically, Derek maintained that he welcomes professional journalists to conduct investigative journalism.
The person responsible for the sting operation called for new parivartan in Bengal, Derek O’Brien said. He reiterated that Mamata Banerjee is known for her transparency and credibility.
