After Union home minister Rajnath Singh, BJP president Amit Shah targeted Mamata Banerjee government on Monday, saying that only chit fund industry is flourishing in West Bengal and the state was turning into a safe haven for anti-national elements and fake currency racket during TMC rule.
“The 17 lakh people who have been duped by Saradha and Rose valley chit funds want to know what happened to the money that was siphoned off. In Bengal all industries are closed and only one industry is flourishing – that is chit fund,” Shah said apparently sounding the bugle for the assembly election barely a few months away.
“The people may know her as CM, but the chit fund owners know her as a great painter, whose paintings were bought for crores (by them).
“The people are not fools didi (Mamata), they know very well that chit funds are running in connivance with TMC,” he told a rally here.
