Hudhud times: Kolkata | Trinamool Congress leader Abhishek Banerjee today said he was ready for a probe into the alleged money laundering case that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned him to New Delhi for. If the allegations against him are proven, the Diamond Harbour MP said, he was willing to be hanged in public.
Mr Banerjee, the nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, has been asked to appear before the ED in New Delhi tomorrow in connection with an investigation into the alleged theft of coal from mines in West Bengal’s Asansol area in connivance with public sector officers.
“I reiterate what I had said in November at public meetings. That if any central agency can prove my involvement in any illegal transaction of even 10 paise, there will be no need to hold any CBI or ED probe. I will walk up the podium and get myself hanged publicly,” Mr Banerjee told reporters at the Kolkata airport on his way to New Delhi. https://www.hudhudtimes.com/
