‘Trinamool politicians worried about CBI, contact me’: BJP leader sparks row

by The Technical Blogs


BJP’s national secretary, Anupam Hazra, on Monday, suggested that “corrupt” Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders fearing summons from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) should reach out to him about joining the BJP.

This statement led to the BJP state unit distancing itself from his remarks.

Hazra made these comments during an organisational meeting at Bolpur in Birbhum district.

According to news agency PTI, he said, “Those TMC leaders wearing thick gold bracelets and chains and roaming free are apprehensive that they might receive summons from the CBI or ED. I would like to tell them from this platform that they should immediately stop corrupt practices.”

He further added, “You can go to my Facebook page and contact me. If you feel shy to come forward and talk about joining the BJP, you can get in touch with me and tell me your wish. We will see how your services can be used for the party.”

Hazra also mentioned that the BJP has strict protocols regarding the inclusion of tainted leaders, but those who had once indulged in corrupt practices but now want to lead an honest life and presently have a good image are always welcome to join the party.


However, the state BJP unit distanced itself from Hazra’s remarks.

Samik Bhattacharya, the BJP state spokesperson, said, “The state unit doesn’t share his views regarding inducting corrupt leaders, nor do we follow this practice. Rest it is for the central leadership to comment on what he said.”


TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh reacted to Hazra’s remarks, saying that the BJP leader has revealed the truth about how the saffron camp is inducting corrupt leaders using CBI and ED.

He said, “We have been saying for a long time that BJP has turned into a washing machine where all tainted leaders turn into a sage once they join the BJP. It is now proven that BJP is only interested in inducting tainted leaders.”
