WBPCC president Adhir Chowdhury today met West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi and demanded resignation of TMC ministers who were purportedly seen accepting money in Narada sting operation.
"We have requested the governor to look into the matter, where we have seen several TMC ministers were accepting money in a sting operation. The TMC ministers should resign on moral grounds. The state government instead of taking action is trying to defend them," Chowdhury told newspersons here. The state Congress president submitted a memorandum demanding the same. Chowdhury also alleged attack on the former mayor of Kolkata Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya in Hoogly district and accused the state government and TMC of trying to stifle the voice of the opposition.
"We have told the governor that it seems the government is decided against any cooperation and coordination with the opposition, be it inside or outside the state Assembly. Saner voices of caution and advice are routinely ridiculed and a brute majority in the Assembly is touted as a license to marginalize dissenting voices of opposition and the civil society," he said.
