The CM was behind the SC directive as a victory for the Constitution and democracy as Andhra Pradesh CM, C N Naidu stood by her side and called her the main face of the opposition. Mamata started the dharna on Sunday night after the CBI attempted to arrest Kumar.
Ms.Banerjee asked PM Modi to go back to Gujarat, where a “one man government and one party government” exists after alleging that the center wanted to control all the agencies
“The court gave a positive judgment today. We will continue to take up this issue in Delhi next week,” she added.
Meanwhile, Naidu praised Mamata for her efforts and was positive that she would win all the 42 seats in West Bengal in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
He further raised questions about the silence the government has over the Rs 58,000-crore Rafale deal. “If there is any event after this, I will always be with Mamata Banerjee,”.
The Supreme Court announced that Kumar cannot be arrested and that he is to faithfully cooperate in the investigation of the Saradha chit fund scam.
The court ordered Kumar to appear before the CBI at a neutral place in Shillong to avoid any unnecessary controversy
