Kolkata, 07 July (His). Amidst the heat of panchayat elections in West Bengal, news has come from the CBI office to stir up the politics of the state. A case was registered against Shubhendu Adhikari, Leader of the Opposition in the state assembly, in the Sarada-Narada case. Now the officials of the Eastern Authority of CBI have sought green signal from New Delhi to investigate this. According to CBI sources, the top officials of the CGO Complex in Salt Lake are of the view that unless an inquiry is initiated against Shubhendu Adhikari in these two cases, no progress is possible in other cases including recruitment corruption in the state.
From Kunal Ghosh of Trinamool Congress to Abhishek Banerjee were repeatedly demanding an inquiry into the Sarada-Narada case against Shubhendu Adhikari. The Trinamool Congress had alleged that Shubhendu had joined the BJP to save himself. But now Shubhendu Adhikari might not get relief. Because the Eastern Regional Authority of CBI has already sent a letter to the Union Home Ministry headed by Amit Shah. In the letter, permission has been sought to investigate the Narada-Sarda case against Shubhendu Adhikari. If Amit Shah’s ministry allows, the Leader of Opposition in the state assembly may soon be called to Kolkata’s CGO Complex or Nizam’s Palace for questioning.
