Chit Fund Scam: CBI summons TMC lawmaker Sudip Bandyopadhyay

New Delhi: Hours after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the note ban issue, Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay was summoned by the CBI in connection with a chit fund scam case.

“I will go and find out what the allegations are,” Bandyopadhyay, who has been summoned on December 30, said on Tuesday. “It's not good to be constantly called and issued summons.”

In a joint conference with several other opposition parties, including the Congress, the TMC supremo termed demonetisation as “illegal” and “unconstitutional”. 

"Modi, you had asked for 50 days’ time, people were losing livelihood, dying due to starvation, yet they gave you that time. Now 47 days are over, and only three days left," said Banerjee referring to Modi's 50-day deadline nearing its end.
