Kolkata: The re­cent ar­rests of Tri­namool MPs which Ma­mata Ban­er­jee al­leged was pure po­lit­i­cal vendetta by BJP have now taken a re­v­erse turn. Chal­leng­ing the in­tegrity of the cen­tral agen­cies’ of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gat­ing into the chit fund scam, the Kolkata Po­lice, in a re­v­erse in­ves­ti­ga­tion, has found in­crim­i­nat­ing ev­i­dence against En­force­ment Direc­torate's as­sis­tant di­rec­tor, who fea­tured in the much talked about footage do­ing the rounds.

Ma­mata Ban­er­jee’s Tri­namool Congress now plans to raise the is­sue of ‘po­lit­i­cal vendetta’ in Par­lia­ment and dis­cuss the party’s con­cerns at large.

Ac­cord­ing to sources close to Ban­er­jee, if her party men have been cor­rupt, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s jing bang can­not be given a clean chit ei­ther. Sig­nif­i­cantly, the is­sue will be raised in the Par­lia­ment at a time when the Modi gov­ern­ment is tak­ing ef­forts to curb am­bi­gu­ity in po­lit­i­cal fund­ing.
