West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sits in dharna against CBI action


Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee went on an indefinite sit-in in front of the Metro Channel Control Post of Hare Street Police station at Esplanade in Kolkata, after CBI officials tried to enter Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar’s residence to question him in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam. Ms. Banerjee said her agitation was to “save democracy, Constitution and the country.” She blamed the Central government, particularly the BJP leadership and the National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, for forcing her to go on an agitation. Trinamool officials said “it could be a fast like in 2006” when Ms. Banerjee went on a 21-day agitation. That time it was directed against the CPI(M).
