TMC should take lessons from Amit Shah: BJP
"TMC should learn from BJP the way the party leadership and the party submitted to the rule of law in Shah's case," BJP National Secretary Siddharth Nath Singh said.

Kolkata: Asking the TMC leadership to take lessons from the way BJP Chief Amit Shah abided by the rule of law in the Sohrabuddin case, BJP National Secretary Siddharth Nath Singh on Tuesday said instead TMC has gone on to abuse the legal system by its political offensive in the Saradha scam.

"TMC should learn from BJP the way the party leadership and the party submitted to the rule of law in Shah's case... It (the case) was Congress' mischief and vindictive politics... But BJP went for legal recourse and did not become obstructionist in Parliament like the way TMC did in Saradha scam," he said.

"On Saradha scam, the TMC leadership seems neck deep in corruption but they want to abuse the Indian legal system by launching political offensive and not undertaking legal offensive. It shows TMC either doesn't have faith in the rule of law or it knows that in Saradha scam its leadership is at guilt," Singh said.

TMC, two MPs and a state minister of which have been arrested by CBI in the Saradha scam, has alleged that CBI was being used by BJP to corner the ruling party in West Bengal. Singh said that BJP welcomed the court decision on dropping charges against Shah which reinforced its trust in the Indian judiciary.

In a major relief to the BJP President, a special CBI court on Tuesday discharged him in the case of Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter killing in 2005.
