Centre pressurising ED in Saradha scam: Trinamool

Tuesday, 22 April 2014 - 7:27pm IST | Agency: PTI

The Trinamool Congress today alleged that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) was being pressurised by the Centre in bringing up the Saradha ponzi scam issue during the election season.

"Isn't it a political conspiracy when you bring up the issue before polls? ED is a neutral body but in our opinion it is being pressurised," Trinamool general secretary Partha Chatterjee told reporters here.

He said they have no objections in ED doing its work, but impartiality should be maintained and their work should not reflect any political colours.

Defending the government's role in handling the issue, Chatterjee said they did everything possible in ensuring that the guilty were punished.

The ED had recently summoned three persons, including Trinamool Lok Sabha candidate Arpita Ghosh and a retired IPS officer, to question them on the chitfund scam.
