New Delhi: TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee appeared before ED officials in Delhi today after being summoned in a money laundering case. He was interrogated for about eight hours. Abhishek Banerjee’s interrogation took place at the central agency’s office in Jamnagar. Officers began questioning him at 11 a.m. After leaving the ED (Enforcement Directorate) office after questioning, he sharply targeted the BJP. “Those who cannot defeat us politically will not bow to such authoritarian cowards,” he said.
Those who fight against the BJP are victims of harassment
After a thorough interrogation by the ED, Abhishek Banerjee accused the BJP of harassing those who fought against the BJP. The matter is from Kolkata but I have been called to Delhi for questioning. I have been interrogated for the last hours. “I have been saying from day one that if there is any evidence against me, make it public,” he said. I have said before that if my 10 paisa is involved in the transaction, I will hang myself in public.
“If anyone wants to stop the TMC by force, I challenge him to put the CBI, ED, income tax and other agencies behind us, even then we will not bow our heads,” the TMC MP said. He said that if the BJP thinks that it can intimidate the TSM in this way and accept defeat of the TMC like the Congress and other parties, then we should tell them that we will fight hard.
Will defeat BJP in next elections
The Trinamool leader said the BJP’s dictatorship would end. He said that if you pay attention to my words, soon all the assets of the BJP are going to be reduced. Trinamool will defeat BJP in the next elections. We will go to every state where there is a BJP government and where they have killed democracy. He said the TMC would not sit at home like any other team. There are 25 BJP MLAs in line but we are not taking them.
Wife Rujira Banerjee has been summoned
Abhishek Banerjee is an MP from West Bengal’s Diamond Harbor constituency and is the National General Secretary of the Trinamool Congress.
