10 January, Bhubaneswar
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Tuesday staged a demonstration here to protest against the arrest of their party MPs Sudip Bandyopadhyay and Tapas Pal in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam.
The party workers staged a demonstration followed by a protest meeting at Lower PMG here.
They accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government for resorting to political vendetta against the TMC, which is opposing the demonetisation move.
TMC MP Subrata Bakshi said that since their party led by Mamata Banerjee is opposing the demonetisation, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), being managed by the Centre, has arrested their leaders to finish the party.
He said their Chief Minister is with the people and the opposition to the demonetisation will continue.
TMC MPs Sudip Bandyopadhyay and Tapas Pal have been arrested by the CBI in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam.
The CBI is investigating the unregulated financial investment schemes that were run by Rose Valley.
