Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today blamed that his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee saying that is trying to protect a “corrupt officer” in the Sharada chit fund scam case. He accused that the fact Mamata Banerjee went to the “home of corrupt officer” shows that there is “much more hidden” in the scam case.
Addressing a public rally at Purulia in West Benga, Yogi Adityanath lamented that she is trying to protect a corrupt officer in the case Sharada chit fund scam…Now, the Supreme Court has paved the way for proper investigation. Yogi also took a dig at Banerjee over her sit-in that she launched on Sunday night to protest CBI action against Kolkata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar in the chit fund scam case. Banerjee called the CBI action as “political vendetta” by the Narendra Modi government against its opponents.
Responding to Mamata’s advice that Yogi should focus on managing Uttar Pradesh, his own state, where “lynching is happening and farmers are committing suicide”, Yogi said, “I heard earlier in the day that Mamata Banerjee said that I should manage Uttar Pradesh first. I want to tell her that UP is well managed.”
