Biman Bose Questions Source of TMC’s Election Fund
Malda, 15 April, 2014: State CPI-M secretary and chairman of state Left Front (LF) Biman Bose today raised questions regarding the source of election fund of Trinamul Congress. Mr Bose met the LF workers and addressed a election meeting in Malda on Tuesday.
Bose said, “Trinamul supremo Mamata Banerjee claims that her party is a poor people’s party. But then how the party leaders are using chartered flights paying an hefty amount of Rs 60 lakh per day. They must clarify their source of fund.”
“We lodged complaints with the Election Commission (EC) apprehending that Trinamul Congress might indulge in booth looting as they did in panchayat and municipality elections before. We anticipated that Trinamul would attempt to prevent people from exercising their franchise. We urged the EC to adopt preventive measures. But now the EC itself has been attacked by the Trinamul on several occasions. It is a detrimental trend to attack a constitutional body like EC,” the state LF chairman said.
He alleged that chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s statement against the EC was encouraging her party workers to manhandle the EC officials.
Bose said that in Trinamul regime there were one after another scams in the state. Lakhs of people lost their last penny to the chit-fund companies. But no proper action was taken. TET scam has not been probed into. Trinamul’s actual face has been known to people.
Bose addressed a workers’ meeting in Malda College auditorium today. Later, he addressed a public meeting in Sujapur on Tuesday evening in support of the CPI-M candidate in Malda south constituency Abul Hasnat Khan. Mr Bose in his speech attacked the Congress and BJP too.
