Along with Chatterjee, the ED also conducted searches on MLA Manik Bhattacharya, Minister of State for Education Paresh C. Adhikary, and other individuals. When the alleged illegal appointments were allegedly made in government-run and aided schools by West Bengal School Service Commission, Partha Chatterjee—who is currently the minister for industries and commerce—was the minister of education (WBSSC).

According to TMC it’s a plot done by BJP to harass its rival. West Bengal Transport Minister Firhad Hakim said, “This raid by ED, a day after the spectacular Martyrs’ Day rally that created ripples all over the country, is nothing but an attempt to harass and intimidate leaders of the TMC.”

However, the BJP said that after assuming office, the Trinamool has “supported large-scale abnormalities” in the selection of teachers for the elementary, upper primary, and secondary levels.
