Kolkata: In a major breakthrough, on Sougata Roy’s statement on Trinamool Congress’ members involved in corruption, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Monday said that Roy is trying to preserve his ground.
While speaking to ANI Bengal Congress Chief hit out at TMC MP Sougata Roy. Chowdhury said that when 95 per cent of TMC members are honest, then why there is so much corruption in the party? On Saturday, Trinamool Congress Party MP Saugata Roy said that time has come for those who joined the party for financial benefits to leave.
Sougata Roy said, “It’s time for those who joined or are in the party for financial benefits to leave the party,” Roy said, adding that 95 per cent of our team works honestly.
TMC MP was addressing the general public in Kamarhati, where he mentioned the panchayat polls, which are scheduled in early 2023. “We want the panchayat elections to be peaceful,” said Roy.
Replying to which, Congress MP said, “Why Sougata is opening up now that there are some who joined for financial benefits. When 95 per cent of the TMC Party is honest then why there is so much corruption in the TMC?”
“Sougata Roy is running out of fear as he may not get an MP ticket this time from TMC,” said Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury
Roy’s statement comes amid protests by the opposition BJP, CPI(M) and Congress, alleging corruption by the ruling TMC at all levels of the administration in West Bengal.
However, Roy’s statement is seen in the wake of two strongmen of the party, Parth Chatterjee and Anubruta Mondal, being under the agency’s scanner for several scams.
It is worth mentioning that the CBI had arrested TMC’s Birbhum district president Anubrata Mondal from his residence in Bolpur in connection with the cattle smuggling scam on August 11 and subsequently he was lodged in jail.
Earlier on Wednesday, a team of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials on Saturday questioned Trinamool Congress strongman Anubrata Mondal in connection with the multi-crore cattle smuggling scam in West Bengal.

The team of CBI officials questioned Mondal in the scam after reaching Asansol jail in West Burdwan district on Saturday.
Apart from this, in October, the Special CBI Court extended judicial custody of West Bengal former Education Minister Partha Chatterjee along with ex-officials for 14 days in connection with the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC) Scam.
The former state education minister was produced in the CBI court, Alipore in connection with the West Bengal School Service Commission Scam.
Notably, during the public address on Saturday, TMC MP Saugata Roy said, “we don’t want some people to tarnish the party’s image for personal gain.”
Informing people about the West Bengal panchayat polls scheduled in 2023, Roy said that our resolve is that we want the panchayat elections to be peaceful. “Abhishek Banerjee had announced earlier, that the candidate for panchayat polls will be decided by the party high command,” Roy added.
