The CPI(M) today demanded that TMC chief Mamata Banerjee be questioned in connection with the Saradha scam and termed her challenge to the CBI to arrest her as "unconstitutional."
"She has challenged the Supreme Court's directive to the CBI to probe into the Saradha scam... Being the chief minister of a state how can she do this. This is against the Constitution... We are ashamed of this," Opposition leader Surkyakanta Mishra said at a rally here.
The rally demanded the questioning of Mamata and the top Trinamool leadership "involved in the scam".
"One of her MPs arrested in the Saradha scam has been telling that she (Banerjee) is the boss of all these," Mishra said in an apparent reference to suspended TMC MP Kunal Ghosh, arrested over a year back in this connection.
Mishra alleged that both TMC and BJP have been "working out on a secret nexus," and held Banerjee responsible for the state's stalemate.
"She (Mamata) is responsible for the state's stalemate... The TMC and the BJP both are involved in a nexus," he said.
Mishra also claimed that Banerjee has little knowledge on the laws of the country and in the past had herself violated laws several times.
He also questioned why a "law-violation" case against Banerjee would not be initiated on her challenging the apex court's directive on the Saradha scam.
Predicting that the ruling TMC party "would no longer exist and disintegrate" in near future, Mishra invited those "honest, patriot, secular" activists in state to join hands to save the state and the country.
"All are not bad in Trinamool. There must be few who are honest, patriot and secular. We invite them to join us in our fight to save the country... This TMC will not be there, it will disintegrate," the CPI(M) leader said further asserting that the Left would be the only party to save the country's future.
CITU leader Anadi Sahu and CPI(M) leader Rabin Deb were also present in the rally which passed through the hub of the city.
